Mannheim has a diverse selection of sights and activities to offer. The baroque-style castle, which is home to both university activities and a museum, is definitely worth a visit. If one is more in the mood for something green, then the Luisenpark can help. Here you can visit the butterfly house or drink tea in the traditional Chinese tea house and much more. Mannheim's city center, or Quadrate, has a variety of shopping and dining options to offer. And if you're in the mood for some bar culture in the evening, you can stop by the Jungbusch district adjacent to the Quadrate. Here you can find a variety of food and entertainment options.

The city of Cologne is considered one of the most important tourist destinations in Europe because of the Cologne Cathedral, its Romanesque churches and other medieval monuments. It is also known for its carnival culture. Cologne also has a lot to offer in terms of cuisine and culture in various parts of the city. For example, the Roman-Germanic Museum, which exhibits art, jewelry and everyday objects from the Roman and Merovingian eras, is definitely worth a visit.
