Cologne is one of the oldest cities in germany and nice to look at. There you can barely see history in every part of the normal life. A lot of ancient roman buildings are partly preserved and can still be seen. Also a great historic museum in the center shows a wide variety of findings from all eras of the history of mankind. Besides that the inner city with it's medieval buildings invites you to walk around and just enjoy the scenery or go shopping. During that time men can drink something in one of the many bars and restaurants.
Nightlife at Cologne also offers you many possibilities that you can choose from. The wild area around the city is nice, and also walking in the nature you can see a lot of roman remnants.
If you are in the area, you really should visit Cologne.
