Ang gagawin mo

We will start at Deutz station in the heart of Cologne's long-neglected right bank where you'll get first hand insight into how the city has been changing over the 20th century as well as getting the basics laid out on beer culture with your first Kölsch in a traditional way. We'll head on to cross Hohenzollernbridge, where you'll understand the city's close connection to the river, into its medieval center, where you'll get first-hand insight into peculiar traditions as well as architectural marvels or disasters spanning all centuries while tasting the primary types of Kölsch at different beer pubs. We'll end the tour close to the Hauptbahnhof and Cologne's most impressive historical museum on the National Socialism period, the El-De-Haus, or I'll send you your way with one final beer.

Along the way, I'll happily take pictures of you and your group in my favourite picture locations.

Should you be interested but don't find a suitable date in the calendar, just send me a message, often I can flexibly arrange for additional dates or move existing dates slightly.
Other things to note
Cologne is a very old city and not reliably barrier free, so it's important to be prepared to walk and climb stairs. Also, it's not mandatory to drink alcohol on the tour but certainly strengthens the experience as Cologne's history is closely connected to its brewing culture.

I'm a high-school-level teacher of German history with an according university degree and have been living in and around Cologne for over a decade now, always exploring the city with a professional eye. Years ago, I started leading friends on history walks of the city's heart, which, after all, has been inhabited for about 2.000 years now, with traces of every period found everywhere. Over time, the walk grew into a standing itinerary that I do with beer for friends and without for students. Especially the latter are extremely strict critiques and have always been excited about the walk.

Saan ka pupunta

You'll see the everchanging suburb of Deutz where you'll learn about the dark history of the historical trade fair buildings, will hear about the weird design of the country's most famous train bridge (Hohenzollernbridge) and why the Cathedral survived the war despite being hit directly several times before heading into the medieval heart of the city. All in all, you'll find out why Cologne is the most peculiar of all German cities.

Marcel was a fantastic host, and we had a great time. His knowledge of the city and its history is incredible, and his way of presenting his knowledge is engaging and interesting as well as personal. I would’ve given him even more stars if I could. If you go to cologne you must take the time to take Marcel’s tour of the city!

Marcel was knowledgeable and personable. He mixed in historical stories and how they influenced or continue to influence the history and people of Cologne and the area.

Marcel was a great tour guide with a clear passion for his city. We learned a lot about Cologne and also enjoyed the Kolsch tastings and a bit of beer history as well!

Our tour with Marcel was extraordinary. Marcel is engaging, funny, and above all, extremely knowledgeable about Köln’s history and culture, from medieval times to the present. He even did extra research to talk about a part of the city’s history that we were particularly interested in. And did I mention the Kölsch and the great beer halls?! So delicious and so much fun. I can’t recommend this tour highly enough. It thoroughly enhanced our visit and appreciation of Köln.

Can we please give Marcel double the amount of stars?! As a history teacher Marcel knows all about history obviously, but to tell about it the way he can is something completely different. He is a great storyteller, he is captivating, he shows interest in all participants, all in all: a great tour through Köln by the best guide you can get. We would have loved to do the all day tour with him but we couldn’t as our dogs were waiting for us at home. But if you can: please do, we’re sure you won’t be dissappointed. Our four hour tour went by in a blink it seemed and you know what they say about time flying. Marcel, a big thanks one more time and all the best of luck to you and your family!

Marcel nous a permis de mieux comprendre sa ville, ses habitants,son histoire. Sans lui, nous serions passés à côté de quantité de choses. C'est un merveilleux guide qui a su nous communiquer l'amour qu'il a pour cette ville. Merci !
