Hire a car in Cologne
One of Germany’s oldest cities, Cologne has brazenly evolved without fear.
Although Cologne doesn’t rank high in old world beauty like Vienna or Prague, its cityscape holds a captivating allure. Today, Cologne is composed of modern post-war architecture with a few restored historic buildings scattered in between. Rising above it all is the dominating twin spires of Cologne Cathedral, the city’s (and Germany’s) most important and symbolic landmark.
Alongside Cologne’s historic masterpieces are an uncountable number of galleries and museums, which highlight its contemporary culture. After navigating your way through the city, jump in your rental car and follow the River Rhine to Germany’s wine county, medieval hillside towns or pure natural settings.
Sights to see
Germany's oldest city, Cologne is full of cultural and historical treasures. Cologne Cathedral is probably the City's best known landmark with its two 157 metre spires. It is also the largest German cathedral and took 632 years to complete, so it is well worth a visit. Cologne Cathedral stands in stark contrast to the Hansahochhaus building which, at the time of its construction in 1920 was the tallest "skyscraper" in Europe.
