Cologne, enjoy every minute of this amazing German city

Cologne, enjoy every minute of this amazing German city!

It’s hard to miss the soaring twin towers of Cologne’s landmark Gothic cathedral. But to see what really makes this German city tick, pick a cosy inn on the River Rhine, order a glass of Kölsch beer and enjoy a chat with the friendly locals.

About Germany

Fourteen museums are to be visited in this fourth biggest city of Germany , including the Farina Fragrance museum birthplace of the famous Eau-de Cologne. No wonder that one needs a refreshment after so many visits. Cologne is known as the German town with countless bars and restaurants.

Severely destroyed during World War II, Cologne still shows some historical buildings next to many reconstructed sites. It also offers many standards of modern architecture, including many bridges and skyscrapers.

With its famous Carnival in November(one of Europe’s biggest street festivals), and its taste for music, medias and technology, Cologne shows countless facets of its lively charm.
