A walk through Südstadt

If you want to discover the probably most typical district of Cologne, our Veedel tour through Südstadt is just the right choice for you. Between elegant, old buildings and vibrant green places we explore the quaint pubs of the quarter and discover the most popular, trendy clubs, as we learn more about the southern district. This tour is currently only available in German.

The upcoming dates

Our Veedel tours are taking a winter break. We will be back in April/May. Until then, check out our Dark Side of the Dom tour or the regular free walking tours!


We want to show you the Veedel exactly as real natives experience Cologne every day — and hence move off the beaten paths. We focus on a feeling for our district — not merely on dry dates and facts!

On our journey through the Veedel you will explore the beautiful Friedenspark and the Rheinauhaufen — the former harbour of the district — and learn what connects the South of Cologne with John Lennon. In Severinsviertel, famous for its special medieval charm, we find out what the Bürgerhaus has to do with chocolate and why Cologne sometimes is called the “most northern city of Italy”. Past the Bayenturm we explore the so-called Eierplätzchen at the adjacent Römerpark, thus rounding off our tour perfectly.
