What to see on this neighbourhood tour

Throughout our tour by locals through Agnesviertel, we’ll go beyond the facts of this beautiful district and leave conventional tourist paths.  Discover the real feeling behind this typical Cologne district’s romantic facade.

On the tour, you’ll have the chance to admire St. Agnes, the second largest church in Cologne, and learn more about its exciting past . With its colorful variety of blooming flowers and plants, the Flora Garden is certainly one of the loveliest places in the city. Here we’ll learn something about the history of our favorite primate, “Petermann” and its connection to the Cologne Zoo. On this tour, locals  will take you through hidden spots unknown to many Kölners, like Fort X, a part of the former military fortification in Cologne’s Neustadt, where you’ll take a glimpse into the Prussian past. Come explore this beautiful neighbourhood with us.
