  2. Please bring your own mouth-nose masks. To what extent you will have to wear them, will be decided depending on the location and group size.

What to see on this neighbourhood tour

In the Belgian Quarter, you’ll notice that even the walls of the Veedel show the diversity of the neighborhood, inviting you to marvel at the various forms of street art. On our Walking Tour, we’ll see the hip pubs and clubs on every corner, showing off the young and lively way of life in the Veedel.

On the “Via Belgica”, a Roman military road that runs 400 km between Cologne and the Atlantic coast, we’ll learn all about the history of the Belgian district. Through traces of history, we’ll discover how the Veedel has evolved throughout our city’s past ages. Our Veedel tour takes us through the crowds of the Cologne Rings to Stadtgarten (literally city’s garden), which is one of the most popular places in Cologne to spend a sunny afternoon. After our tour, the many concept stores in the Belgian district invite you to spend an eventful evening experiencing the shopping in this fashion forward district. Come dive into the trendiest district in Cologne with us.
