Cologne: the city of churches, beer and mustard. It may not be the most beautiful city in Germany, if chocolate-box cute is the standard, but it is certainly one of the most social and vibrant. Rhinelanders, and Cologners in particular, know how to have a good time. Here are 20 places to go to ensure you do too.

The Three Kings

It’s because of the Three Kings or Wisemen that Cologne exists at all in the modern world. The Shrine of the Three Kings, said to contain the bones of the three wise men from the Bible, brought pilgrims to town in the Middle Ages, and it was decided that a cathedral had to be built to house the shrine properly. Every January 6 (Epiphany in the Church Calendar), members of the public are allowed to process alongside the ossuary (bone box) and pay their respects.
