Free City Tours in Cologne: Matthias & Florian

The Freewalk Cologne journey started on cold November days in 2015.

Freewalk Cologne offers free city tours, neighbourhood, brewery and historical tours and more for everyone. Our tours are a mix of a storytelling event and a kiosk crawl with your friends. For us, it is important that you get a personal and authentic insight into Cologne’s life, culture and history.

The journey started in 2015. Matthias showed his Couchsurfing guests the city and had never heard of the free walking tour concept. Florian hosted many people from all over the world and hence joined Matthias’ groups. Read here how this grew into what Freewalk Cologne is today.

Our team is in love with Cologne – everyone in their own individual way. Therefore, you’ll hear personal stories from each guide additionally to the historical and cultural facts. This makes each of our guide’s tours unique, authentic and fun.

How can a chameleon represent free city tours in Cologne? Well, we want you to experience an amazing time with us and that means focusing on your personal interests and wishes. So, like a chameleon that changes its colours in different situations, we adjust our tours regarding the different interests of our guests.
