A beautiful house in Cologne, quiet and yet right in town

Welcome to Cologne where the cathedral spires tower over Germany's oldest city and its innumerable cultural and historical treasures, world-famous museums and active art scene. Take a trip through 2000 years of history and visit cultural monuments from the Roman Empire to modern times.

Built between 1248 and 1880, Cologne Cathedral is regarded as a masterwork of medieval Gothic architecture. It is one of the finest ecclesiastical edifices in the world.

Whether visiting the Romano-Germanic Museum, looking around the Roman Praetorium or taking a walk past the medieval city gates – Cologne's 2,000-year history can be felt everywhere. The Romano-Germanic Museum is, besides its outstanding glass collection, home to the Dionysos mosaic and the famous tomb of Poblicius.

Situated directly on the Rhine and marked by narrow gables and high slated roofs, a district of its own type asserts itself in the Old City of Cologne, the unmistakable, historically appearing character of which stands out immediately.

Also, Cologne is an art and culture metropolis of international renown: 42 museums, such as the Museum Ludwig, which houses the biggest pop art collection outside the USA, the new cultural Quarter at Neumarkt and 120 galleries with the widest variety of collections from all eras bear witness to Cologne's reputation as a centre for art and culture. Cologne also has an extremely animated theatre scene

Our detached house is situated in a suburb of Cologne, by tram in 20 minutes you are at the cathedral. In the vicinity there is anything you need: a wildlife park, a forest, a swimming pool - but also absolutely fascinating city of Cologne. Here, the car may stay. Every 10 minutes comes a tram into the city. From here, other cities are to achieve: Bonn, Dusseldorf and Leverkusen in a few minutes. And the romantic Rhine Valley is not far. Cologne is an ancient Roman city, the Rhine flows through. Any events can be visited: shopping malls,museums, arthouses, theatre, cinemas, music events .

Unser freistehendes Haus liegt in einem Vorort von Köln, mit der Strassenbahn ist man in 20 Minuten am Dom. In der nahen Umgebung gibt es alles: sogar einen Wildpark, einen Wald, ein Freibad - aber auch die absolut faszinierende Stadt Köln. Hier kann das Auto stehen bleiben, alle 10 Minuten geht eine Strassenbahn in die Stadt - die nicht schläft. Von hier aus sind in wenigen Minuten auch andere Städte zu erreichen: Bonn, Düsseldorf und Leverkusen. Aber auch das romantische Rheintal ist nicht weit.
