Best Time To Visit Cologne - Time To Go To Cologne

The ideal time to visit the city would be September and October, just as autumn is beginning to set in. Considered to be the peak season, expenses will sky-rocket, so if you’re looking to travel on a budget, book well in advance. Bring your umbrellas with you it can rain at the drop of a hat.
