About the tour
Cologne offers a hub of culture, a wealth of history, an abundance of holiday cheer and a home to you for the next four days as you explore the Rhineland. This festive tour focuses on what Cologne does better than perhaps any other city in the world at Christmastime: markets. In this city alone, seven Christmas markets present the sights, sounds and smells of Christmas through local delicacies, spiced wine, and locally made wares. Our time here begins with a guided tour of the city, allowing a glimpse at the centuries-old architecture and colorful row houses before you commence your adventure through the city's seven unique markets. We also travel to the city of Bonn - the birthplace of Ludwig Van Beethoven and the former capital of West Germany - for even more history and holiday cheer. Ring in the most wonderful time of the year with German traditions this season.
Upon arrival in the city, make your way to the Hotel Mondial am Dom. The hotel is ideally located close to the railroad station, the Rhine, the city's magnificent Gothic cathedral and some of the city's most spectacular Christmas markets.
