iGuide - Audio-Visual City Guide
KölnTourismus offers digital guided tours for individualists. Besides a considerable range of guided tours, the Cologne Tourist Board offers now an option for individual travellers who prefer to explore the city on their own instead of joining a group. Using a small hand computer, you can enjoy an audio-visual walking tour of Cologne and discover the most important sights between the Cathedral and Heumarkt square. With spoken commentary and corresponding images, the well-elaborated route guides you to numerous fountains, monuments and buildings.

The iGuide is very easy to handle. Just a few buttons allow you a maximum of options. Pressing a button you may abbreviate operating processes, interrupt your tour or comments and return to particularly attractive sights - just as you please. Visitors are provided with a convenient city map that shows the walking route with individual sights. As from now the iGuide is available in English or German. Further languages are being provided for in the next year.

3 days: A weekend getaway in the Franconian Wine Country - from € 148
A weekend getaway in the Franconian Wine Country
Impressive encounters with a young old city - Würzburg offers lots of them. And spectacular ones at that. The Episcopal Residence built by Balthasar Neumann and featuring a ceiling fresco by the Venetian Tiepolo, the world's largest painting, can only be described in these terms. This clerical domicile from the 18th century has been a UNESCO world heritage site since 1982.
The lively university city of Würzburg, gateway to the Romantic Road, is dominated by its most prominent landmark, the Fortress Marienberg. The origins of this fortress date back to around 1000 B.C., when a Celtic fortified refuge existed on this site. Since the foundation of the Würzburg bishopric in 742, Würzburg has been the religious center of the region.
Includes:
  • 2 nights with rich breakfast buffet
  • 1 franconian snack and a glass of wine

Cologne Cathedral
The Cologne Cathedral
The Cologne cathedral is a cathedral of the superlative, a symbol and central attraction of the Rhine metropolis.

The catehdral is still today the second highest building in Cologne after the telecommunications tower. The area is no less impressive: The full length of the cathedral is 145 m., the cross nave is 86 m.wide. In comparison: a football pitch is "only" around 100 times 70 m. There is room for more than 20,000 people on the area of the cathedral, which encompasses almost 8,000 square metres.
                                                                                                                              Ascent of the Tower
Climb the south tower of the Cathedral to its 97 m high viewing platform and enjoy a magnificent view of the City.

Treasury
The treasures of Cologne Cathedral are displayed in the 13th century vaults - priceless reliquaries, liturgical objects and vestments, insignia of the archbishops and priests, medieval sculptures and Frankish grave finds.
