What to expect

The Rhineland has a lot to offer for art lovers. Cologne, Bonn and Dusseldorf are fascinating cities with outstanding art collections, castles and museums.

Experience art from ancient to modern times and be enchanted by the contemporary art scene in these cities. The Rhineland stands above all for innovative paths in art and famous artists such as Gerhard Richter and Joseph Beuys have left their marks here.

But friends of the Old Masters and palace architecture also get their money's worth.

Anyone travelling to the Rhineland should also experience the culinary highlights. Beer and hearty dishes characterize the menus of the restaurants. So do not miss to drink an original Kölsch and look forward to Rhenish Sauerbraten.
