Of course, our tour through Cologne Ehrenfeld takes place outside the conventional guided tours of mass tourism. We will show you the multicultural Ehrenfeld as it lives and breathes and feed you with insider tips from people native in Cologne.
On our Veedel tour, you will learn how the district has evolved from a worker’s district to the most popular place of residence for Cologne students. From the meeting point of Germany’s largest mosque, we will be on our tour for about 2 hours to explore the secret corners of the district – and have a look at a wall or two, since Ehrefeld has a lot of fascinating (street) art to discover and learn about.
In order to fully capture Ehrenfeld’s way of life, a look at the dynamic business culture and the lively world of pubs in the most popular streets of the Veedel will not be missed. With lively anecdotes we will tell you the most interesting facts about Ehrenfeld’s exciting history. At the Neptunplatz, Körnerstraße and at the Bunker K101 we will learn more about the legend of the Thebaer, the three windows design and the industry of Ehrenfeld.
