I enjoyed my visit to Cologne, especially walking along the Rhine passing many restaurants and cafes along this parkway area. River boats were docked along the way. I stopped for a few drinks of the local beer. It was a lovely relaxing day.

The Frankenwerft in my opinion is a better walk than Rheinauhafen as it takes in more of the picturesque views of the city. However, I do advise you to do both of them.

Frankenwerft is an excellent place to sit down and enjoy the day. It's in the Old Town along the River Rhine where many restaurants are located. Many local people come there as well. During nice days it becomes really crowdy.
