    The Lindenthaler channels (Rautenstrauch and Clarenbach) were created in 1925 by the former Cologne gardening director Fritz Encke and are still attractive attractions in Cologne. Many joggers, walkers and cyclists are on these channels.

    Parallel to the Aachener Straße, this canal leads towards the city center and offers hikers and walkers a good and quiet alternative to the busy street in the immediate vicinity. A small city idyll.

    Over 125 years old church, which was rebuilt several times before 2000. Today it has a light-filled interior, which is very worth seeing. The church was built very large, although the community was still very small at the gates of Cologne. It was designed by the Theodor Kremer - who designed more than 30 Neo-Romanesque and Neo-Gothic churches at the turn of the century - in 1890. Master builder was the Müngersdorfer Gerhard Denhoven. As an example, the church of St. Aposteln am Neumarkt in Cologne in question.

    You shouldn't think of a beautiful, shady path along the canal in the middle of the city.

    Like the Clarenbach Canal, the Rautenstrauch Canal is part of the Lindenthal Canal System, which connects the interior and exterior of Cologne's green belt.
