On this two-and-a-half-hour excursion, you’ll get to try some of Cologne’s locally brewed, world-renowned beers, plus see some of city’s most famous landmarks – like the cathedral and the Roman city gates. Cologne's the cultural heart of the riverside region known as the Rhineland, and comes with a buzzing arts scene, more than 30 museums, hundreds of galleries and popular breweries. This excursion takes you straight to the old town, where you’ll visit two German breweries. A guide will give you a tour of each one, and tell you all about how the beers – which are unique to Cologne – are produced. You'll learn all about Kolsch, which originated from Cologne, as you taste a couple of different varieties of the beer. You'll also hear about Cologne's brauhauses – AKA breweries or pubs – and their unique tweaks to the original Kolsch recipe. And they'll share their rules and traditions, like making sure you don't foot the bill for the first round by finishing your beer first.
