... the parade. With pockets filled with candy, as the parade ended we followed the crowd toward bratwurst stands and more pubs packed with people in costume. For the rest of the day, we hopped from pub to pub, making our best attempt to sing along with the popular German songs that kept playing. Toward dinner time, we somehow stumbled upon a little carnival with rides and food stands. Of course, we opted in for the bumper cars. Definitely the highlight of my day... By ...
... quite cold, as it wasn't going to start coming past us until around half 11, but there were so many people in different costumes and mini-parades of people to entertain us.
When the parade started we were all shocked to find that the participants were throwing this out into the crowd. These weren't just little things either - there were all sorts, from small packets of jelly sweets to big boxes of chocolates! If you weren't paying attention when a float came past, ...
The elderly couple managed to climb 533 steps to the top of Cologne Cathedral this morning so despite the adverse comments yesterday we are not quite dead yet. A very tiring day spent wandering round Cologne, quite a nice city with lots of squares and car free zones. Most of the buildings are new on account of some work done by the British in 1944. After the cathedral and a huge German lunch of ham hock, a ...
... at several of Cologne's eight Christmas markets. So magical and unbelievably charming. There is no cheesy tents or plastic tables at these markets. These are wooden, decorated, charming stalls that spare no details in decor and sell hand-crafted, high-quality clothing, foods, ornaments, candles, scarves, decorations, and are dotted with places to order a Kolsch beer or a spiced hot wine, some bratwurst and Christmas stollen. Just lovely. We really enjoyed our day and will miss them once ...
... Eurail pass... bargain! Here we pick up the train again on to Frankfurt briefly and then Munich. The cruise is particularly impressive from St Goer onwards, and you can get similar views from the train trips here too. Even the trip from Frankfurt to Munich was quite pleasant with wineries and small country towns in the landscape along the way. We trued some of the traditional German food in Munich, and although Jeff's was fine, I chose some roast pork ...

Historical Traveler Reviews Cologne Marriott Hotel
Excellent: Looking forward to returning!
Only stayed one night here in September with partner after seeing the hotel on a previous trip to Cologne. Will not look elsewhere for a hotel when I visit again. Hotel very modern and one of the best rooms and definatley one of the best beds I have ever stayed in. Fantastic view of the Cathedral to which this hotel is very close ( 5 mins walk from getting off the speedy train link to airport, what more could you ask for) Staff couldnt be more helpful and welcoming, excellent bar and restaurant, breakfast exceptional. May have been lucky with the room as others seem to have experieced smaller rooms, but the amenities and ultra modern look are big pluses.
Looking forward to staying there for longer in December for my return trip..
What a wonderful experience! I recently stayed here with my husband and 8 month old son. It was a beautiful, clean, and modern hotel with an absoultely outstanding breakfast that was included in our room price. It is at the most ideal location in town and we loved Cologne! The Dom Cathedral is perhaps the most amazing place we have ever been, and we also really enjoyed walking along the Rhine and visiting the Chocolate Museum. We drove to this hotel and parked along the street for 8 euros, so try and do that if you can instead of the parking lot, which is 20 euros for 24 hours. No suprises here! A wonderful hotel in a beautiful city.
After booking a room at the Hotel Ibis Koeln Am Dom: trying to save a little money (still over 100euros) I sent my wife and daughter in to take a look and check in while I parked the car,They came back out after looking at one of the rooms and said no way were they staying there,the rooms were very small and stank.. So we walked around and found a cab driver and asked him for a hotel recomendation he said the Marriott was right there pointed to it and What a great recomendation that was .The hotel was fantastic Brand new and Modern ,What more can you say about the beds very comfortable We stayed 2 nights (149 euros )when only planned on 1 because of this hotel and the city We highly recomend this hotel and Thanks to the cabbie for such a good advise
We stayed at the Marriott Cologne 2 nights in early June at the advice of our friend that lives in Cologne.
My wife and I spent one night at the Marriott Cologne on May 30th, 2006. As Cologne was merely a resting place for our trip between Innsbruck, Austria and Amsterdam, we wanted something nice and close to the train station. The Marriott Cologne did not disappoint.
Booked a standard twin room on Saturday night for a weekend in Koln. Hotel is new (opened Jan 2006). Located very close to the train station (3 minute walk). It's slightly low-key ie. not in the main square or with a panoramic view of the Rhein, but we really liked that since it's in a very accessible quiet spot.
Brandnew hotel near train station. Unfortunately in the second line to the Rhine river, so now views at all. Very nice room, but our "double" or king-size bed was really small for two people. Also, only one glass and cup at the minibar, so it must have been a single room. Bathroom small, but well stocked and all in dark wood. Young and energetic service. Very good dinner in "Fou" restaurant. Main courses are not expensive, but drinks are definitely overpriced, even the coffee. Breakfast is a must with incredible choice in cheeses, teas, a Belgian waffle maker to make your own breakfast waffles - and everything nicely designed. Well-equipped fitness room with Finnish sauna and "bio" sauna (not so hot, but higher humidity and light in changing colors). Fully recommended hotel, but at check-in better ask about the bed ...
The hotel is in a good location close to the Dom and station. We stayed on the executive floor. The rooms were nicely decorated, modern but warm. The restaurant, "Fou, the crazy brasserie", and staff were very pleasant. The executive lounge offered limited cold buffet breakfast, but great choice of afternoon snacks and drinks. The TV in our room offered free sattelite programs in all possible languages.
We also stayed in Hilton Cologne. I give it higher rating for its incredible restaurant and striking design. Marriott had a cosier feeling, and the staff was young, friendly and very energetic. Recommended.
I liked it as, for a business hotel, it had most of what you would need and the beds in particular were excelent. This is the latest Marriott outside the USA and a kind of flagship on their new approach.
Very close to the train station and one of the most striking cathedrals in the world.
Any snags? A few small and easily fixable teething problems and one bigger one they are fixing. The big one is the mobile phone reception is dire and blackberries barely work at all. Coming to think of it that might be a good thing if you plan to chill out
We have stayed here one night only on our way back from Austria. The hotel has opened since January 15th 2006, so it is only open for 2 weeks now. We had a great rate for our stay. We had a room at the executive level and they upgraded us to a suite..
