There is no doubt that the Roman-German Museum in Cologne proves that the wonderful city was once under Roman rule.

The modern museum itself stands on the land where the original marvelous mosaic of Dionysius was found.

Thus, the Römisch-Germanisches Museum is, in itself, an archaeological site.

Dionysius’s mosaic is, perhaps, the museum’s most-prized artifact – and therefore, a must-see attraction.

Unlike other museums in Germany that are far from the city center, this one is just a few steps from the imposing Koln Cathedral, the city’s number one tourist attraction.

Hotel / Hostel in Cologne

I stayed at Hostel die Wohngemeinschaft. You can book it via Booking.comTripAdvisorExpedia, and HostelWorld

Though it is around 30-40 minutes walk to the Cathedral, I love it here because the beds are comfortable. Each bunk had its own curtains so you can have your own privacy. It’s clean and the staff members are friendly. I was even allowed to check-in early because the bed/room was already available. Or maybe, they just saw my tired eyes and I really needed a rest.  Since the hostel is around the university area, cheap bars are basically right in every corner. There are a host of restaurants and grocery stores, too. For medium-priced accommodations, click here.
