Cologne Vacation Packages

The national capital, Berlin, is 290 miles northeast of Cologne, while Leverkusen lies 6 miles to the north.

Phantasialand and the MMC Studios are lovely places to spend some time with your kids. Want more? Terrassen-Freibad and Lentpark will ensure that the good times keep rolling.

Take snapshots, enjoy the interpretive displays and find out about our amazing planet at the Cologne Zoo. If your time is limited, be sure to grab a map so you don't miss any of the key exhibits.

At the Japanischer Garten, visitors are able to admire a range of striking botanical displays.

When it's time to take five, grab some lunch and head out to one of the area's scenic urban parks, such as Flittarder Rheinaue and Forstbotanischer Garten Koln. Carl-Duisberg-Park and Turnicher Castle Park are two more pleasant spots to while away the afternoon and finally read that neglected book of yours.

If the sun is out, the glittering, placid surface of Stockheimer Hof Recreational Area is a lovely sight.

Expand your knowledge with some time at one of the area's well-curated cultural institutions. Enjoy the cool and quiet interior as you check out the varied collections at the Wallraf-Richartz-Museum and the Romano-Germanic Museum. The Chocolate Museum and the Museum Ludwig are also worth a visit.

Think about spending a morning at the Odysseum to broaden your knowledge on scientific advances and other wonders of the world.

The preserved specimens at the Rautenstrauch-Joest-Museum aren't simply heaps of fun to look at. They also play a vital role in helping us understand the complexity of the natural world.

Add to your appreciation of the artistic process, and maybe even find something for the lounge room at one of the area's many exhibition spaces. Soak up the creative atmosphere at the Museum of Applied Art and the Museum of East Asian Art. Afterwards, if you still have some energy left in the tank, finish up the afternoon at the Galerie Der Spiegel and the Cologne Kathe Kollwitz Museum.

Go back to a time long since forgotten and uncover mysteries of yesteryear at the Cologne City Museum and the Bergisches freilichtmuseum Lindlar. Do you like the sound of those? Continue your journey at the Kölnisches Stadtmuseum or the Goldene Kammer.

City Hall and the Cologne Triangle Panorama are certainly worth visiting, even if history isn't your forte. More tales from the days of old are waiting for you at the National Socialist Documentation Center and Augustusburg Castle.

Take a trip back through the ages and begin to understand the military significance of the area. Anyone with even a passing interest in history should impressed by the defense structures at Cologne Fort Museum.

Featuring unique architecture and beautiful gardens, the palatial abodes here will leave you green with envy. If you can catch one, a tour will help you get more out of your trip to Schloss Bruehl and Brühl Palaces.

There is a number of castles sprawled around this area. Revel in the austerity and complex history of Castle Park Gleuel, Falkenlust Castle and Palaces Augustusburg and Falkenlust.

Learn about the region's spiritual side and enjoy some moments of quiet contemplation at Cologne Cathedral and Great St. Martin Church. You may also like to check for guided tours around the Cologne Synagogue or St Maria im Kapitol.

Cologne's most famed sights can overshadow its less touristy, but equally rewarding activities. Hohenzollern Bridge and the Cologne Cable Car could be up your alley. Also, consider a visit to Rheinau Harbour and the Michael Schmacher Kart and Event Center if your schedule allows.
