Our neighbourhood tours are currently only available as private tours. Please send us a request. Due to the lack of guests, we have to reduce our service.

We still offer our Classic Cologne free walking tours at 12:11 pm on Fridays, Saturdays and Sundays at Eigelstein-Torburg in English and German. Please register in advance for the tour.

Our neighbourhood tours through Cologne

Although our Cathedral is the heart of the city, it is in the neighbourhoods (or as we call them: Veedel), where you can find the real Cologne feeling. Join our tours and find the authentic treasures of Köln. Get your city sightseeing away from the touristy areas.

In order to keep everyone healthy and to anticipate the upcoming government regulations, we introduced the following measures during COVID-19:

  1. The groups will be kept small (max. 12 PAX).
  2. Guests should bring their own mouth-nose masks. To what extent you will have to wear them, will be decided depending on the location and group size.
  3. We ask for the contact information of the guests before the tour, so that we can inform you of a possible infection during the tour.

This data will only be used in case of an infection in the group and, if necessary, will be sent to the Health Department. Once the infection period has expired, the data will be deleted.

Our Cologne district tours

Dark Side of the Dom Free Tour

As the sun goes down and the night takes over, join us in exploring the dark side of Cologne's medieval and recent past. Are you into stories about murderers, witches and mayhem? You’ll explore the gloomy side of Cologne’s past focusing on the city’s Medieval history. Be prepared for the pure misery of living in Medieval Times.

Classic Cologne Free Walking Tour

On our free walking tour, you will get to know the Cologne way of life. You will see the main sights and learn a lot about the “Cologne feeling”. Why is the number 11 a thing here? What is the story behind the famous carnival? Why does Cologne not fulfill German stereotypes? We can’t wait to welcome you in our city. After the tour, you decide for yourself what it was worth to you.

Price & Languages

Tickets cost 12€ per person and are available until two hours before the tour starts. Currently, we offer all of them in German and the Ehrenfeld tour in English – please send us a request for other languages and we will see what we can do.

Five neighbourhoods

…with very different stories. Dive deep into Cologne’s local life and explore the districts on our walking tours: Ehrenfeld, Belgisches Viertel, Südstadt, Nippes and Agnesviertel. All district tours can also be booked as a private tour throughout the year. Find some impressions of our neighbourhood tours on Instagram or share your own! #veedeltour

City sightseeing

– away from the city centre. We love our cathedral but Cologne life happens in our neighbourhoods which have gone through many changes throughout the years. Meet the local kiosk owner, spot historical sights in the streets and understand what’s on the neighbours’ minds today. This is our way of city sightseeing.
