I'm going to Music Store in Köln, Germany some time soon to do some major guitar shopping. I'm thinking of spending four days there.

Does anyone know of anything fun to do there? Sites to see, places to go, etc.

Don't suggest pubs because I'm already on the case.

Has anyone been who doesn't speak German, because it's concerning me?

If you know nothing of the place, don't spam my thread.

I've been there, it's nice... Can't really remember what I did though.

There's always the cathedral ...


I went to Cologne on a school trip 6 years ago. There's a themepark near it that was hella fun, but the city itself is pretty damn depressing.

Was it called something stupid like Phantasialand? Because I vaguely remember that.

You're spending four days in a music store? Phew.
Well, I guess there's a lot of guitars to see...


And about the German: Don't worry, they're quite fluent in English.

Buy some Dolce Gabbana ''Koln'' at a department store


..also if you go to Music store check out 'Fame' PRS copies, they are amazing.

Correct about the fluent part. In some areas in Germany, it's a requirement to learn English.

Anyways, that looks like a f***ing brilliant music store

Football match?

Edit: I don't know if you could afford it, my cousin went to Munich on August and he told me the tickets were like 400 euro each, althought he was trying to get into the first game of the season.

Well in terms of English, there's really no need to worry, if you're not annoyed by our goddamn awful accent.

There's the 'Kölner Dom' (Cathedral) which is the probably most famous building in Köln. If you want to see less touristic places of Köln, visit the 'Belgisches Viertel' (a district full of pubs, bars and people to down beers with). Recommended as well would be having a look at the Rhein (river) and it's surroundings since there are some quite nice places.

Other than that, just discover the city on your own, you can find interesting buildings / places / ... almost everywhere in Köln and be sure to try 'Kölsch', the beer Köln is famous for in Germany.
I'm going in;

When I say four days "there", I'm referring to Cologne in general.

I'm going to spend at least a full day in Music Store. My brother's going to go mad, but there is a bar; He can go get ****-faced and vomit on a PRS private stock.

I'm on the prowl for the ideal amp. The Diezel Einstein is looking to be the most promising. I'm also going to try out anything I've ever wanted to try out, because essentially, they either can order it in or have it in the store/stockroom.

Wow, cheers, mate. That's just the answer I was looking for: a particular place/area in Köln that houses most of it's glories. And also, a few people have cleared me of my worries concerning the language barrier. It's reasuring.

Thanks to all.

Is it best to fly into Dusseldorf and then get a train to Cologne? I can't seem to find any airlines that fly direct from Dublin to Bonn.

Safe bet. The train connection between Düsseldorf and Köln is excellent. Just be sure to catch the S-Bahn or RegionalExpress, or you might end up in an Intercity and pay a little more than necessary..
