Cologne’s Zoo was founded in 1860 and is one of the oldest, yet also one of the most modern. Following this experience we will relax for an hour on a mini-cruise on the Rhine. In the evening, we will visit Chlodwigplatz with its hip cafes and restaurants, old houses and that typical Cologne charm. This is the site of the Severinstorburg, one of the most beautiful city gates in Cologne.
