Blind walks in Cologne

A guided tour with a difference has recently been launched in Cologne, reports North Rhine-Westphalia Tourism, giving visitors the chance to explore the cathedral city in the dark. On these 'blind walks', participants tour the city wearing sleeping masks and carrying rucksacks. A highlight of the tour is a picnic or wine tasting in the dark. From 10 March 2012, public guided tours will be regularly available at weekends.
