From many of our guests, a tour of the city starts at the cathedral, the undisputed main landmark of the city. From there, you can wander through the old part of the city and discover the many sights. This includes Cologne City Hall with its imposing tower or the Gürzenich, a concert hall that is still used today, particularly during the carnival.

FC Köln plays for points, as well as the Lanxess Arena, home to the Kölner Haie as well as the location for concerts of international artists, are easy to reach from the H+ Hotel Köln Hürth.
The 157m-high Cologne cathedral is one of the largest Gothic cathedrals in the world and since 1996 has been a much-admired UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its magnificent interior contains the largest amount of medieval gold craftsmanship in Europe.
