In the heart of Germany’s Rhineland, Cologne is full of history—even the Kölsch pale lager has been locally brewed here for over a hundred years. Evidence of the medieval world appears in the form of the 12th-century City Hall, the 13th-century Cologne Cathedral, and the three of the city’s original 12 gates: Eigelsteintorburg at Ebertplatz, the Hahnentor at Rudolfplatz, and the Severinstorburg at Chlodwigplatz. Avalon guests get their pick of a guided city walk or a Jewish heritage tour.
