Cologne Things to Do: 714 reviews and 1,382 photos


Don't be surprised whan you see billy goats in Cologne, mostly just statues, but occasionally also live ones, especially Saturday afternoons.The one on the picture was on the roof of a stall at the Christmas Market.

A billy goat called Hennes is the mascot of the local football club, 1.FC Köln. They have a very large fan club in Cologne, much larger than the other team, Fortuna Köln. I once got in the way of the fans rushing to the stadium when I was trying to walk in the opposite direction - it's best to wait until they all have passed.

Directions: All over the city

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
