City Guide: Cologne
From Roman ruins to howling monkeys and chocolate fountains, Germany’s famous cathedral city offers a wealth of family-friendly attractions
Spot the difference. While Cologne’s cathedral is the epitome Gothic grandeur, its next-door neighbour the Museum Ludwig cuts an altogether starker figure, with its undulating roof and blank grey flanks. Built in 1976, the museum is a mecca for modern art and is named after art aficionado and chocolate factory owner Peter Ludwig who bequeathed much of his collection to the city. Budding art critics can pass comment on works by a host of the art world's movers and shakers, including Cubists Picasso and Braque and Pop Art pioneers Lichtenstein and Warhol.
