Severin quarter



Guided tour/tour

Guided walk through Cologne's south

A cheerful walk through the traditional Vringsveedel district, where there used to be extensive vineyards, Kölsch beer ran in streams and the smell of chocolate filled the air above the old Stollwerck factory. From the imposing Severins City Gate to Schmitz-Backes, we explore the heart of the city. You'll find out where Trude Herr turned Cologne upside down and how a touching love story ended. On this casual city tour, you will get to know the leaning tower of Cologne and a ship of fools that lies on dry land. Between the monastery and the cloister, you will hear curious stories about the quarter of the same name of St. Severin.

Attention: Only in German
