You can meet many different styles in Old Town of Cologne. There are very charming places but on the other hand many which do not fit together. Maybe because Old Town was destroyed nearly completely during World War II.

Although the ‘old town’ was largely rebuilt after WWII, it is a pleasant place to walk around. Some interesting buildings and cobbled streets, it is nice to stroll up from the river and not too large an area to cover. There are loads of shops,...More

Old town is both quaint and comfortable. There are dozens of places to eat and enjoy a few glasses of Kolsch or wine on the plaza. Getting around is easy - on foot or using one of the ubiquitous electric scooters (Lime, Bird, etc).

It's nice though, with many arty shops and eateries and pubs. I like it here. But...Old it isn't. Near the cathedral, alter markt, Heu markt, the old city hall and a number of Museums and other churches.Worth a visit.

Nice to walk along the river and through the "old" town lots of good eating hourses and loads of drinking places. Was here in the day but imagine the night might make it more vibrant. Definitely a good place to walk and visit

I suppose the RAF did a lot to flatten the ALTSTADT but the Kolsches have done wonders to rebuild it.

Cologne is a friendly, walkable town. Most of the restaurants we went to were reasonably priced and there was a lot of choice in cuisines as well. We ate at a lot of the Kolsch breweries and we met a lot of locals this way... More

You are in the old town area and within 10 minutes walk to the Cathedral, if I am correct about your location.
