... this place is nothing special, just a few places where to eat and drink and a large square. During the xmas period there is the christmas market, that many people love.

I didn’t really care for this part of Cologne as the shopping wasn’t that exceptional. It was different and too spread out. However, if it made my wife happy I am happy.

Typical city market area with lots of small cafes on the square where you can relax and enjoy a meal.

I always find squares in old parts of cities attractive. The Alter Markt in Cologne is no exception. Handsome buildings, and a great choices de of cafes and restaurants. People watching is good! The statue of the man on the horse is quite a feature.

This Market square is located about 10 minutes walk from the Central Station. A big area accommodating many bars & restaurants with outdoor space for people watching. The Town Hall for Cologne is located here too.

There are lots of buildings with the typical German architecture you’d expect and many little shops and restaurants. It’s nice to stroll along the river and pop in and out of stores while admiring your surroundings.

When you go to he old marcet and along the river (Rhein) you see a lot of older building. Small, little houses and tiny streets. it is really beautiful.
