The Rhine metropolis of Cologne can look back on more than 2,000 years of history. World-famous sights such as Cologne Cathedral, multicultural events and interesting cultural offerings make this city of over a million inhabitants an exciting destination for young and old at any time of year. The lively city on the banks of the Rhine is the home of the Rhenish carnival. Germany's fourth largest city is cosmopolitan, colourful and flashy. But there are also quiet places and extensive green spaces to discover in the lively metropolis.
If you rent a campervan, you are flexible on the road during your holiday. With a campervan or motorhome, you can also easily reach more distant destinations independently of the public transport network. Exciting excursion destinations such as the Phantasialand amusement park or the Neandertal Museum are also within easy reach with a campervan.
The Kommern open-air museum southwest of Cologne and the historic Falkenlust hunting lodge and Augustusburg castle in Brühl are also worth a day trip. Holidays in a campervan are a close-to-nature and uncomplicated way to travel - and perfectly suited for families with adventure-hungry children.
And should the sun hide behind a few clouds, big and small Cologne holidaymakers can spend a relaxing day in Cologne's museums. A visit to a museum can also be very exciting for the youngest, because there are brave gladiators and lightning-fast racing drivers to discover here. For example, in the German Sports and Olympic Museum on the banks of the Rhine or in the Museum König. And in the Chocolate Museum you can even have a nibble now and then.
Are you toying with the idea of renting a campervan? That's an excellent idea!

Along the riverbank, affectionately called Father Rhine by the people of Cologne, stretch the Rhine meadows.

Here you can watch the barges passing by in peace and quiet or collect shells.
