Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Start off your visit on the 8th (Mon): stop by Old Town (Altstadt), then enjoy breathtaking views from Rhine Tower (Rheinturm), then snap pictures at Hohenzollern Bridge, and finally take in the spiritual surroundings of Cologne Cathedral. On the next day, get in on the family fun at Phantasialand.

To see other places to visit, photos, traveler tips, and other tourist information, you can read our Cologne trip maker site .

In October, daytime highs in Cologne are 59°F, while nighttime lows are 46°F. Finish your sightseeing early on the 9th (Tue) so you can travel back home.
