Full description
This tour makes time travel possible: on a virtual ride through the old town, visitors discover the lively life of old Cologne in 1900 in a historically accurate replica of a tram. Thanks to virtual reality, you can immerse yourself in history and experience the still intact old town of Cologne in all its splendor. 

The VR glasses provide a 360-degree panoramic view and, together with the wind, vibrations and a driver from Cologne, ensure an unforgettable time-travel experience. Two further stops round off the lively excursion into Cologne's city history: in the cinema, a short film conveys impressions from Roman Cologne to the present day. Visit an exhibition of 3-D photographs which show a journey through time with well-known sights of Cologne.

The approximately 45-minute visit to the exhibition will delight time travellers from young to old, especially for groups and families with children, the attraction offers a unique historical experience.
