No jaywalking. No swimming in the Rhine.

Otherwise this is a pretty safe place.

Try not to stumble into the river after too many Kölschs. And don't stalk the Heinzelmännchen (the local equivalent to the "brownies" or the "little people" who secretly do your housework during the night, as the legend tells), they do not like being observed. That's about all I can think of.

Ah yes, and if you order a "Halve Hahn" ("half a chicken") in a pub in Cologne you will receive a cheese roll.
