Every season is good for visiting Cologne 

Cologne lies with its 85 districts left and right of the Rhine’s currents, which flows from through the city from South to North. The Rhine’s deepest point in a bay is about 50m above sea level. The city has a

relatively mild climate, large temperature differences don’t exist. They lie between minus one degree Celsius in the winter nights to plus 24 degrees Celsius on sum- mer days. The summer can be a little wet and humid. Helping ease the discomfort of the weather is a cool fine breeze and cold
Kölsch (beer) in the beer gardens on the Rhine. There, in the setting of the Altstadt (olde towne) and at the Rhine promenade, it’s a beautiful experience to have a seat. It looks a little bit different in the winter when Cologne is wet and cool, it can even be down right cold on certain winter days. Of course snow falls, but seldom, and when, it usually melts quickly. The white grandeur mixes with the ground salt and sticks to your shoes when you walk comfortably around the Christmas markets in December. Pertaining to the weather, the year ‘round is a great time to visit.
