    Our tour will walk past the great sites of the city, the ones everyone knows and loves, and then, take a few turns on less known streets. You'll find here hidden Roman archaeological remains, breathtaking historical monuments, and even some of the most popular local bakeries and beer halls. To the untrained eye Cologne is a busy, fun, modern city. But we will focus on small architectural details that hide fascinating stories of war, competition between cities, religion and customs. I will also make sure you do not leave the tour without seeing some of the coolest postmodern art installations, the kind of installations that some people only see in their university books, or on the news. During our time together I like to build a small community. After all, we have lots in common: new to the city, excited and eager to see, learn and have fun. I am looking forwards to swapping travel stories, and a joke or two.
