Though Cologne famously contains 12 Romanesque churches, the city's top prize remains its landmark Gothic cathedral.
Your day-by-day itinerary now includes Skulpturenpark Waldfrieden. Attractions like Phantasialand and Cologne Cathedral make great kid-friendly stops. Explore Cologne's surroundings by going to Aachen (Markt & Aachen Cathedral), Eltz Castle (in Wierschem) and Cochem (Burgruine Winneburg & Reichsburg Cochem). There's still lots to do: see the interesting displays at Chocolate Museum, admire the masterpieces at Wallraf-Richartz Museum, contemplate the long history of Ehrenbreitstein Fortress, and don't miss a visit to Hohenzollern Bridge.

For where to stay, photos, more things to do, and more tourist information, refer to the Cologne trip itinerary planning app.
