It's a great thing when you get a professional tour of a foreign city. You learn a lot of new and very interesting things about a city in which you would normally run from one sight to the next without internalizing the information you read.

Mit echter und lustiger Kölner Art

October 14, 2021


Leider war die Tour nicht so wie gedacht. Anstatt Highlights gezeigt zu bekommen, ging es hauptsächlich um die Geschichte. Und die fing mit den alten Römern an. Uns interessierte weniger wie die Toten früher beerdigt wurden und was auf den Grabsteinen stand, sondern vielmehr wollten wir was von Köln/Altstadt zu sehen bekommen. Da dies auch nach einer Stunde nicht geschah, haben wir die Tour abgebrochen und sind eigenständig mit Hilfe von Stadtplan und Auskünften von Bedienung aus einer Lokalität zum Rhein, Schokoladenmuseum usw. gelaufen. Da wir bereits vor 3 Jahren eine Stadtführung in Köln mitgemacht haben, wissen wir, dass es besser geht. Und zwar mit Spaß und Sprüchen und viel kölschem Humor. Als unser Enkel (12 Jahre) fragte, wie lange geht das hier noch, war für uns die Tour zu Ende. Die Tour sollte begeistern und mitreißen und nicht langweilen!
