What to see on this neighbourhood tour

On our city tour through Nippes, travel through the exciting history that made this popular neighbourhood what it is today. Discover the details about brewing forbidden bottom-fermented beer which helped Nippes become popular as a centre of Pils today. Together, with our city tour, we’ll pass through the cosy cafés and the hustle and the bustle of Neusserstraße. Stroll along the Sechzigviertel and learn exciting facts about the beautiful Kulturkirche. Capture the summer feeling in the district, we’ll also pay a visit to Eis-Engeln in the Sechzigviertel.

In Nippes, young meets old, making it the perfect district for families which we’ll see in Schillplatz. While Wilhelmsplatz is known for quiet afternoons and evenings with a glass of wine, its unique weekly market brings people in from far beyond the borders of the district. In the Nippes city tour, you’ll find one of the greenest and proudest neighbourhoods in Cologne. Come explore it with us.
