Even the house walls in the Veedel alone show the diversity of the Belgian district and invite you to marvel at the diverse forms of street art. Also, many scene pubs and clubs on every corner indicate the typical young and lively way of life in the Veedel.
On the “Via Belgica”, a Roman military road, which is about 400 km between Cologne and the atlantic coast, we learn everything about the history of the Belgian district. On the traces of the past, we will discover how the Veedel has evolved throughout past ages. Our Veedel tour takes us through the crowds of the Cologne Rings to the Stadtgarten (literally city’s garden), which is certainly one of the most popular places in Cologne to spend a sunny afternoon at. After our tour the many concept stores in the Belgian district invites you to an eventful shopping experience.
