Full description
Set out on a thrilling journey with TimeRide and experience the undestroyed Cologne and the fascinating lifestyle of the legendary twenties! Together with the charming hatter Tessa and the Cologne streetcar driver Pitter, you will discover the exciting time after the end of the First World War, the British occupation, and the Spanish flu. Your time travel in three steps: · The Cinema: In the 1920s, more and more movie theaters evolved into massive movie palaces. The cinema was a ubiquitous and glamorous part of everyday life and an important source of information. Step into our “Lichtspielhaus” and take a seat together with the fine society: an entertaining short film in the style of that time will show you the historical development of Cologne in the twenties. · The Hatter's Store: In the hatter’s store of the Riedschneider family you will dive together with Tessa into the world of glamorous fashion of the twenties. In the 1920s, everyone wore a hat and the choice of hat said a lot about the wearer! In the lovingly decorated store, the art of wearing and making hats is illustrated using numerous originals from the Diefenthal family of hat makers in Cologne. You’ll also learn more about Tessa’s urgent special order… Will her important delivery arrive on time at Neumarkt thanks to Pitter? · The VR-Ride: The highlight of your journey back in time to 1926: On your virtual ride with the first electric Cologne streetcar, you will experience the beauty of the city before its destruction in World War II. With your VR goggles, you’ll enjoy a 360° panoramic view and discover iconic landmarks of old Cologne, many of which have disappeared or are barely recognizable today: Cologne Cathedral’s surroundings at the time, the old main train station, the Schauspielhaus theater, the city hall led by Konrad Adenauer, and much more. At Neumarkt, your trip ends in the colorful carnival hustle and bustle with a “Grand Finale”.

A nice journey back in time to the old "C" Cologne. I did the tour with my mother (77 years old) and she was so excited! We had done the tour in August, it was very warm and unfortunately my glasses are a bit fogged up (sometimes I couldn't see everything clearly and had to pull up my glasses every now and then so that the fogging went away) The only thing that was a little annoying was that you has noticed the introduction of the other group by having already sat in the train - but maybe only I felt that?

A great idea. I wish that the actual journey would take longer than 15 minutes. The feeling in the S Bahn is modeled very realistically. There is also a lot of love in the details. You can tell that the founder of this idea is passionate about it. It would be really great if all employees could bring it across. Unfortunately, it came across as if they had to run their program quickly and didn't have much time to answer questions. Well, we were the last group that day.
