  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

Of course, our local tour through Cologne Ehrenfeld takes place outside the conventional guided tours of the tourism scene. We’ll show you the multicultural Ehrenfeld as it lives and breathes and we’ll let you in on insider tips from locals in Cologne.

On our Veedel tour, you’ll learn how the neighbourhood has evolved from a worker’s district to the most popular place to live for Cologne students. From Germany’s largest mosque, we’ll explore for about 2 hours to uncover the secret corners of the district – and have a look at a wall or two where you can find Ehrenfeld’s fascinating (street) art, something we’ll discover and learn about.

A look at the dynamic business culture and the lively world of pubs in the most popular streets of the Veedel can’t be missed. Full of lively anecdotes, we’ll tell you the most interesting facts about Ehrenfeld’s exciting history. At Neptunplatz, Körnerstraße and at the Bunker K101, we’ll learn more about the legend of the Thebaer, the three windows design and the industry of Ehrenfeld. Join us on a tour through one of liveliest and most fascinating districts to fully capture Ehrenfeld’s way of life.
