Full description
Embark on an entertaining guessing tour and listen to the stories of your guide.

Find out if everything is a downright lie, or whether it is in fact one of the quirky incidents that really happened in the cathedral city.

Hear of foolish stunts of the administration, the city council, Cologne's dignitaries or simple citizens that happened in recent years or in past centuries.

Guess and take a vote whether your guide has invented the story or it's true, while you traverse the city. After the vote, you'll get the resolution and hear about the background of the stories.

The person, who has shown the most instinct for the truth, will be rewarded with a little surprise at the end of this guessing tour.

Eine etwas andere Art, Köln ein wenig besser kennen zu lernen. Skurrile Geschichten, erzählt von einem hervorragenden Guide, die ab und zu mit Unwahrheiten ergänzt werden, laden zum Raten ein: wahr oder gelogen? Hat sehr viel Spaß gemacht, war kurzweilig und einfach mal was anderes. Nicht zum tausendsten Mal die Information, wann, weshalb und wie hoch der Dom gebaut wurde...viel interessanter ist z.B. die Frage, ob Napoleon sein Pferd mit Kölner Duftwasser parfümiert hat und wie die Kölner Pissgasse heute heißt. Köstlich!!!
