Die Dunkle Seite des Doms

Cologne today is city full of culture, music, drinking and happiness where everyone is welcome. But it hasn’t always been that way. The Dark Side of the Dom tour is a look through the darker side of Cologne’s History focusing on our Medieval past with a few jumps to some of our more recent history.

One of our more historic tours, we’ll focus on the stories and legends from the Dark Ages in Cologne. During the evening, we’ll head through our center city from our meeting place next to the Friedrich Wilhelm III Statue in Heumarkt. Be prepared for witches, ghosts, murderers and just the pure misery of living in Medieval Times.

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

1. Our guides will wear facial visors.
2. The groups will be kept small (max. 12 PAX).
3. 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.
4. 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.
