Throughout our Veedel tour through the Agnes district, we won’t bore you with dry numbers and facts. Instead, we will leave conventional tourist paths and aim at gathering a real feeling of the typical Cologne district.
On the tour you will have the chance to admire St. Agnes, the second largest church in Cologne, and learn more about the exciting past of the building. With its beautiful variety of plants, the Flora Garden is certainly one of the most beautiful places in the city. Here we will learn something about the history of “Petermann” and its connection to the Cologne Zoo. The Veedel tour will take us to Fort X, a part of the former military fortification in Cologne’s Neustadt, where you will be given a glimpse into the Prussian past.
