Full description
Discover the Heinzelmännchen (little house gnomes) of Cologne, the bet with the devil about Cologne's cathedral, the tale of Jan and Griet, Saint Ursula, witchcraft, forgotten creatures, stories and rumors of the city.

Where humans settle, there will be stories and tales that represent the people's culture, life and religion. Dive into Cologne's more than 2,000-year history offer enough marvelous, heroic, funny and sometimes tragic tales of life in the city. Tales that have been told since hundreds of years - some of them long forgotten, but some still known for you to hear.

Join this journey through the unique mythological world of Cologne. Its cathedral and Kölnisch Wasser (Eau de Cologne) are known worldwide and its carnival is famous all over Europe. But whoever wants to truly capture the spirit of the city needs to also find out about its legends and the many worldly wisdoms for any life situation, such as: "Et is wie et is" ("It is how it is"), "Wat fott is, is fott" ("What's gone is gone") and above all "Et is noh immer jot jejangen" ("So far it has always gone well in the end").
