Join us on a journey Through Cologne

In about 90 minutes, your personal guide will take you on a journey through time: At six locations, you will experience important stages of Cologne’s 2000-year history up close in a total of nine virtual reality scenes. To do this, we stand at today’s real point of view and look through the VR glasses into the past – a perfect past-today comparison.

From the Roman border town to the metropolis of the Middle Ages, the outpost of French and Prussian rule, to the place of longing of the Rhine Romanticism and the destruction in the Second World War. All of this left its mark on the city’s character and appearance. How has the city changed and what characteristics remain the same?

Curious visitors interested in technology and culture now experience a special form of city tour that offers exclusive insights behind closed doors and into hidden places.

Our tour takes us two kilometers over hill and dale through the hilly old town of Cologne, where historically difficult conditions through cobblestones & Co. await us. It is important to note that there are no stairs to climb, but a physical strain on the mobility-impaired person or the accompanying person is to be expected. If the person with limited mobility is aware of the strain, there is nothing against participation.
