Alan Rogers Review
Camping Berger has been a family site since 1931. It is located on the banks of the River Rhine in a quiet suburb of Cologne, only 7 km. from the city centre, which is easily reached on public transport or by the cycle path. Of the 250 pitches, 125 are reserved for touring units, all have 10A Europlug and are level on grass with tree shade in places. This is a friendly site with a comfortable restaurant, bar and beer garden, which together with the grassed and sandy areas bordering the Rhine, make it an ideal site to return to after a busy day visiting the city and other attractions in the area.
Cologne is Germany’s oldest city, and although the most famous landmark is the cathedral, a city with such a long and interesting history has much to offer. Some advanced planning before arriving is certainly to be recommended; the city’s website (in English) is an excellent place to start. Eating and drinking have always played a part in the city’s past and with around 3,000 restaurants and bars, some dating back to the 19th century, there is ample opportunity to try out both. Kölsch is probably the most important thing to the inhabitants – it is both the local dialect and the local beer, a top fermented light beer which should really be enjoyed in the taverns of the old town, with their wonderful down-to-earth atmosphere.
