Activities there are none. If you want to have a look how nowadays architects wanted to imitate the cranes, that were there hundreds years ago working for the traffic on the river - take a look! But after 11 minutes watching, go further on into a brewery. But please: Do NOT go into the the so-called "Altstadt"! Take a look... 更多
We loved walking by the river seeing those wonderful buildings! We were amazing in Germany how they take time and effort to make things look really nice
Coming to Cologne you have to visit the Kranhaeuser at the Rheinauhafen a lovely spot, very modern ! It fits in quite well and the restaurants and small shops are lovely !
This place is not just a symbol of Cologne, there are also a number of outdoor cafés and even a fake beach (in summer) around the Kranhäuser. There is also a skate park nearby and the area is popular with cyclists, walkers, runners and foodies alike. It is very close to Cologne's harbour area (Hafen) which is extremely pretty, and... 更多
The Rheinauhafen is a pleasant and enjoyable walk along the river stretching a couple of miles and goes past the new style buildings on the front. However, the walk is lovely but the buildings didn't do anything for me personally.
It is really nice and posh area to walk around, especially in nice and sunny day. It is kind of similar to Dusseldorf Media harbour. There are loads of well known conpanies having their offices. Never went to any restaurant located here ,but I believe it might be expensive and not for traveler on the budget.
ItS# NOT Kranhauser. It's Kranhäuser. It#s also a vanity project showing cologne trying to look more like a metropole. Nothing special here, just houses that look like a building crane a little. I hear some footballers live here. Its# expensive. At Ubierring, opposite Beyenturm you'll find an interesting piece of Streetart though. Real near these buildings.
Interesting set of buildings which can be seen from the river. Unique design and very contemporary living. Very cutting edge and close to the action of Cologne and the old town. Apparently an effort to mix the contemporary with the ancient. Fits in very nicely!
