Full description
Discover some of Cologne's crime scenes from 1900 to the present together with your expert guide.

In recent decades, Cologne has repeatedly made headlines with Hollywood-like burglaries, robbery, child abduction and murder, with resolved and unresolved crimes. Some of the cases have been remembered, but others have been completely forgotten, although the media interest was great.

Not only have the media played a major role in the recent criminal cases, but also the criminals' and investigators' methods have changed a lot.

Immerse yourself in the dark side of the city from the cathedral to the Neumarkt and find out more about Cologne's horrendous history.
  • City tour with a BVGD-certified tour guide
