The German Sports and Olympics Museum on the Rhine embankment in Cologne presents the history of sport in all its fascinating glory.
The exhibition covers sports from the classical period through to the first modern Olympic Games in Athens in 1896 and on to today's professional, elite sports. Recent additions to the display include new sports such as skateboarding, BMXing and surfing. The German Sports and Olympics Museum also offers the chance for you to get active yourself. Have a go at the ancient long jump, step into the boxing ring and practise your penalty kicks on a 'target wall', or experience Tour de France speeds on a racing bike in a wind tunnel!
Tuesday-Friday 10am-6pm, Saturday, Sunday & public holidays 11am-7pm
