Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Kick off your visit on the 16th (Thu): contemplate in the serene atmosphere at Aachen Cathedral and then get in on the family fun at Phantasialand. Here are some ideas for day two: test your problem-solving skills at popular escape rooms, admire the striking features of Cologne Cathedral, then take in the views from Hohenzollern Bridge, and finally explore the world behind art at Museum Ludwig.

If you are flying in from Australia, the closest major airports are Düsseldorf Airport, Cologne Bonn Airport, Dortmund Airport and Weeze Airport. In April, plan for daily highs up to 17°C, and evening lows to 4°C. Wrap up your sightseeing on the 17th (Fri) to allow time to travel back home.
