"Wonderful partytown!" Cologne by Henrik_rrb

Cologne Travel Guide: 1,609 reviews and 4,009 photos

Going away on football trips is good in more than one way. I get to see some football, but sometimes even more important, I also get to see some new cities.

This June the "Fab Four" (thanks Cheryl! :) ) was off to Germany for the Confederations Cup, and spent almost three days in fantastic Cologne.

There are a lot of things to say about this city, but right now I'll just put up some travelouges, and then make the tips later on when I have more time and energy.

Important to say though, is that I really liked Cologne. It was a city that went straight to my heart! The Fishmarkt down at the river, the Dome, the huge stadium, the Kölsch and the great weather!

All fantastic!

Can't wait to get back next summer in time for the World Cup. Will be splendid!

World Cup 2006

So far no tickets for World Cup-games in Cologne, but we sure will try to get some this winter. Want to get back to this stadium!

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:The city, the atmosphere, the weather, the beer
  • Cons:Well, I kind of missed the look of great looking women...?
  • In a nutshell:Coming back!

    Loved the ice cream shot! Very Funny! I would have done the same thing and would have been equally pissed to find that most of the dish was yogurt!! :) Hope you make it to NYC. Sweden is definitely on my list.
