Art and culture, a family reunion or a business appointment - there are many reasons for a trip to Cologne. Take some time during your stay to discover the city: Cologne Cathedral is simply a must-see. It is the city's landmark and, as one of the largest Gothic cathedrals, an architectural landmark. Because its structural form is so balanced, some refer to it as a "perfect cathedral".
The thousands of small locks on the railing of the Hohenzollern Bridge are impressive, with which people from near and far express their love. On the other side of the river is a striking skyscraper, the Cologne Triangle. At a height of 100 meters, you can look out over the entire city through panoramic windows. The Rhine Boulevard begins below the Triangle: the perfect place for a break with a view of the river and the old town. The museum landscape also has a lot to offer: Art in the Museum Ludwig or the Wallraff-Richartz Museum, the Roman-Germanic Museum, the Chocolate Museum or the Cologne Carnival Museum. Speaking of which... The Shrove Monday parade in Cologne is legendary and the entire city is one big party mile on this day.
Cologne is also an economic center, a transportation hub, a research location and a trade fair city. Business travelers are therefore very welcome, and so are tourists.
