Overview

With roots dating back to Roman times, Cologne is packed with buildings and monuments that testify to its ancient and medieval past. Add great museums, an impressive postmodern quarter and top-notch shopping and nightlife scenes, and Germany’s fourth-largest city has plenty for sightseers.

Armed with your 24-hour ticket (valid from time of first use), board an open-top, double-decker bus to experience Cologne’s top attractions. Your ticket lets you create your own, personalized itinerary and explore at your own pace — simply hop on and off at any of the 16 stops as you wish. See the Itinerary for a full list of stops.

Alternatively, stay aboard for the entire 1.5-hour loop and watch Cologne’s top landmarks roll by. Learn about the sights from your English- and German-speaking guide or wear your headphones to hear the audio commentary.

Admire top Cologne attractions such as the world-famous Cologne Cathedral (Kölner Dom) with its towering twin spires, or perhaps leave the bus to stroll through the picturesque Old Town (Altstadt). Alternatively, hop off at the avant-garde Rheinauhafen quarter and visit the fascinating Chocolate Museum (Schokoladen Museum).

Your hop-on, hop-off ticket includes a 1-hour round-trip cruise on the Rhine River. Board your comfortable sightseeing boat and see Cologne from the water as you drift along the legendary river.

Admire the soaring cathedral, snap photos of the gabled riverfront houses, and pass the Rheinaufen waterfront, famed for its crane towers — three blocks shaped like hoisting cranes — as the informative onboard commentary brings the landmarks to life.

The hop-on hop-off buses depart every hour daily from morning to evening, while the sightseeing cruises depart every 90 minutes daily, from morning to evening.
