Holiday rentals and lettings in Cologne

Cute rentals in centre Cologne

If you are looking for affordable holiday rentals in the centre of Cologne, Holidu can help you find one from a wide variety very close to the main attractions of the city. Cologne is not as cheap as Berlin but it does not have as high prices as Munich. Wherever the lettings are, you will find yourself no further than 25 minutes away from the centre. If it’s going to be your first time in Cologne, stay in the old city (Altstadt), especially around Christmas time, where you will find the Christmas markets. If you are just doing a quick stopover, look for rentals near Cologne Central Station. The sightseeing area is more around Kölner Dom. And if you prefer to stay closer to nightlife, rent your accommodation near Friesenplatz or Rudolfplatz.

Modern properties for families and groups

Cologne holiday rentals are ideal for a romantic getaway as a couple or for a family holiday. Most of them can accommodate 2, 3 and 4 people. All the rentals are tastefully decorated with wooden floors, which makes the atmosphere inside very comfortable and warm in the winter. But in addition, almost all of them have modern heating systems for when the cold arrives. Open plans kitchens, comfy lounges and cosy bedrooms. In a terrace or a balcony, you can enjoy beautiful views of the city and organise great lunches or dinners as a couple or as a family. Don't wait any longer to book your holiday rental in Cologne!

Holidays in Cologne

The area and getting around

Moving around Cologne

You can visit Cologne mostly by foot. Enjoy pleasant strolls along the riverbank or through the colourful Old Town (Altstadt). The city’s main attractions are within walking distance from each other. For colder months and around Christmas time, the train and the bus are also a good option to move around. The Bimmelbahnen is a great train that covers the main spots loved by children such as the Chocolate Museum, the zoo or the Christmas Markets during December. It departs from Roncalliplatz every 30 minutes, next to the Dom. Remember to buy train tickets in advance!

Explore the city

Discover Cologne on two wheels, riding along the Rhein and feeling the air in your face, is one of the most pleasant activities in the city. Join a free tour and get to know the funny stories of this amazing European city together with some history. Go deeper into the history of the Dom and discover another side of Cologne’s history joining a Dark Side of the Dom tour which will uncover legends, the medieval past and stories of witches and ghosts. Nowadays, Cologne is an important economic and cultural hub, being one of the most relevant artistic enclaves in Europe.

Travellers and activities

Cologne for art and history lovers

Colonia is a city with an impressive cultural and monumental wealth, offering a wide variety of places with very different themes and very interesting to visit. The medieval wall, the Pont des chains d'amoureux Cologne, the Heinzelmännchenbrunnen fountain, the Cologne Cathedral, the Chocolate Museum and the Ludwig Museum are just some of the attractions that you should not miss. Book a tourist apartment in the centre of Cologne and you will have everything very close!

Cologne for family holidays

Cologne is a great destination for a family getaway. Visiting the Chocolate Museum, having fun in amusement parks such as Phantasialand, admiring the animals at the Cologne Zoo or go on two wheels to discover the city. Taking a bike ride along the banks of the Rhine, a river cruise or a bike tour will allow you to see Roman monuments, parks, Stadtwald forest and many appealing sites off the beaten tracks. But also, if you want to go shopping, Neumarkt is a fantastic area for it. What are you waiting for?

Did you know in the 1980s, 60 emergency runways were built worldwide for NASA shuttles and the only runway in Germany is the one at Cologne’s airport?

Top 5 travel tips in Cologne

1. Visit the cologne cathedral

Cologne’s towering landmark is a masterpiece drawing tourists from all over the globe. Visit the Treasure Chamber and have a look at the ancient manuscripts and reliquaries, admire the famous relief of the Adoration of the Kings from the 1400s and join a guided tour or even a concert! Climb 500 steps and from the top of the south tower, you will get breathtaking views of the city. On Sundays, ear protections are provided as you go past the famous bells!

2. Enjoy a Rhine cruise

You have the chance of seeing the city from a completely different point of view. On a two-hour tour along the Rhine, admire the monuments, the river scenery and unparalleled views of the city landmarks, including the picturesque panorama of the Old Town, Hohenzollern Bridge and the magnificent cathedral, of course. As you cruise along, you can also enjoy regional specialities if you choose the three-hour boat cruise. For a further experience, join a hop-on hop-off cruise to admire the Rhine and Mosel River for a whole day using the KD Rhine Pass from Cologne.

3. Get a sweet German indulgence

Fancy a sweet treat? The Chocolate museum will delight your senses. This museum, known as Schokoladenmuseum, started in 1972 with Hans Imhoff. He restored and preserved the old machinery and started a museum. Here you can see the entire process of the chocolate, from the original bean to the sweet treat we all love! Have a look around and see the interactive displays, the collections of moulds and antique boxes and wrappers. Get some free samples from the chocolate fountain and watch the process of the chocolates being made in a production line. What’s even better is that you can design your own chocolate bar and take it home with you!

4. Observing Cologne from the heights

Since 1975, a cable car was established in Cologne. Nowadays you can admire the beautiful views of the cathedral as well as the Old town from it. For even greater views you can also go to the top of Cologne Telecommunications Tower with 243 metres high and its superb viewing platform, where you can have a bite while overlooking the city and tasting some delicacies at the revolving restaurant. KölnTriangle is a striking contemporary building on Ottoplatz. Its viewing platform offers stunning views of the city, too.

5. A bubbly pleasure to raise your taste buds!

Germany is well known for producing great beer. Cologne is very serious about its Kölsch beer. This specific beer is produced only in 13 breweries around Cologne and it can only bear the name Kölsch if it’s a pale, top-fermented beer produced in the region. Have a cold Kölsch in an original "Brauhaus" (the traditional German pub where the beer is brewed). The "Köbes" will serve you this fantastic light ale in a traditional, tall and cylindrical 0.2 litre Kölsch glass. and he serves one after another if you don't say "no" and put the beer pad on your glass. Raise your glass and have a toast the German way - Prost!
