My dogs are a very big part of my life and I like to take them out with them as much as possible, even if I’m just running errands or sitting on the patio of a cafe. Is a Cologne a dog-friendly city where I can be out and about with two large dogs and where they’ll have lots of options for outdoor space?
I don't have a dog myself but I would say its quite dog friendly. On this link you can find an official map with locations of parks where dogs are allowed without dog lead: http://www.stadt-koeln.de/leben-in-koeln/umwelt-tiere/tiere/freilaufflaechen-fuer-hunde
