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 Kölsch at different beer pubs. We'll end the tour close to the Hauptbahnhof and Cologne's central historical museum on the National Socialism period. Along the way, you'll learn how a city of 2000 years integrates its legacy into its architecture.

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

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 but certainly improves 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. My interest in beer is more personal, but as it's a very historic beverage, I'm sure you can learn a thing or two from me about beer too.

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 one of the best tour guides we've ever had. He is a teacher, and it shows. He had maps, pictures, and other visual aids to show us things such as how parts of the town had changed over time, how things looked in the past, etc. He had many great stories, but his delivery was natural and did not seem canned or rehearsed. He went out of his way to schedule something with us on very short notice, shortly before Christmas. Also, on the tour, he tweaked the itinerary after hearing what we had already seen and what we had wanted to see, so that he didn't show us places we had been earlier that day; he even took us out to a unique location that I now understand is not very common to visit, and that made the tour even more incredible. For anyone visiting Cologne, I definitely recommend this tour, it was one of the best we've had anywhere across the globe.

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 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.
