Travel Tips for visiting Cologne

Cologne is not only about its historical center and its imposing gothic cathedral. A little further on, the chic Belgisches Viertel (Belgian Quarter) escaped the bombings, leaving a collection of beautiful Art Nouveau buildings that give an idea of what the city looked like a hundred years ago. Today, Cologne is best remembered for its uniqueness: an open-minded art scene and a mentality based on a strange mixture of fatalism and optimism.

Cologne is also the main transit center of Western European countries, often chosen as the venue for international conferences, seminars and exhibitions. This urban area is also considered as the "city of festivals" with the Ringfest music festival, the Cologne comedy festival, the Carnival carnival...

The numerous churches and museums are typical of this city. The most outstanding masterpiece in Cologne is Cologne Cathedral - recognized by UNESCO as a World Cultural Heritage in 1996. Cologne Cathedral is a composite masterpiece of architecture, painting and sculpture built in 2005. 1248 and unfinished construction throughout the Middle Ages, not completed until 1880. The church has the largest facade in the world built in pure Gothic style 86.5 meters wide, 144.5 meters long with two giant twin towers 157 meters high.

Cologne has hundreds of museums distributed all over the city. The oldest Wallraf-Richartz Museum in Cologne houses top collections of medieval painting, German Romanticism, French Realism and Impressionism. With countless great masterpieces of great artists such as: Ruben, Rembrandt, Murillo, Boucher, Van Gogh, Leonardo da Vinci... In the medieval painting collection, the most prominent is the work "Madonna of the Rose Bower" by Stefan Lochner, completed in 1450 on oak, depicts the Virgin Mary and the Child Jesus resting by a blooming rose tree with little angels around.

Cologne is also famous for its beer and perfumery. People refer to the locally produced beer as Kolsch, the same language they speak.
