Summer Camp in Cologne

Germany’s most popular tourist destination has much more to offer than just the gorgeous filigree spires and towering facade of its world-famous cathedral – the city is synonymous with joie de vivre and the arts, with museums a-plenty as well as a broad range of dining, shopping and entertainment options. There’s a different architectural curiosity on every corner, from crumbling Roman walls to angular postwar buildings.

The peace and quiet of the Rhine riverbanks offer a respite from the buzz in the summertime, and Cologne’s many museums are also a great way to discover the city’s history at your own pace.

Please note: this course does not accept complete beginners.
