The city by the Rhine River is famed for its massive Cathedral and its sense of fun. The Carnival and Christmas markets in Cologne are not to be missed.

Besides being a centre of carnival activity and the capital of Rhenish joie de vivre, the city is home to a great variety of art museums and the Cologne Chocolate Museum with its legendary Chocolate Fountain. The typical local breweries serving local dishes as well as the local brew Kölsch, a unique beer speciality served in special glasses are very popular. The local people love to welcome guests. Open, friendly and uncomplicated: Cologne is a feeling!
