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”.

Did this event with the company and there were about 20 people. Were received great. It would be good if you got a picture taken at the entrance in front of the railway (just a little tip from me) Time travel on the railway was really great, but I would have wished for more "human beings" instead of well-made dolls: that's for sure hard to get original materials to show this. Otherwise really well done!

It was a lot of fun. My 8 year old was very excited. The cinema room and the "train" was well air-conditioned. The staff were super friendly and it was great. Worth a visit for locals and visitors alike. The price was reasonable. 15 minutes before booking is enough to arrive.

Well done. Whole package recommended. Perhaps the story of the Mad Hatter should be explained better, more excitingly and it should be mentioned that she has a major role in the later film. I didn't understand and thought: Watt should do that, boring ... later it became clear, but only then. Great film, lots to discover, I really liked Pitter. Note: The option below is missing as a family, we were only adults. Doesn't always have to be just for kids!
