What to do in Cologne in the rain?

We're going to be in Cologne this sunday for a few hours between trains with our two young children. We had planned on visiting the cathedral, the old town and a park or two, but rain is forecast so we'd like something we can do inside if the weather is bad that's inexpensive. Does anyone have any suggestions?

We are also looking for a place to eat dinner, we'd like something traditional but family friendly and with something suitable for vegetarians, any ideas?

Rain is a way of life where i come from so i will be out in it.

there is a Roman/Germanic museum more or less next door to the Dom if you care to look into the costs. Its a large museum and you can spend several hours in there if you choose.

There is another Roman excavation further into town, the Praetorium. My adult ticket was 9.50 E

One thing i think everyone would like is the Lindt Chocolate Factory. They give out free samples too when you enter. Its further down the river from the Praetorium iirc. But i enjoyed it along with my tummy. when i was there last year, my Adult ticket was 8.50 E

i dont remember the cost of kids since i dont have any.

For food i didnt eat at any vegi place.

My reply is probably too late, but nevertheless:

there are little trains for sightseeing running across the city, eg to the Chocolate Museum. Maybe that might be fun for your kids



Normally I would suggest to eat in one of the typical brewery houses but I´m not sure if the choice of vegetarian food is huge.
