COLOGNE BREAKS

Sleeping on the River Rhine, Cologne is Germany’s oldest city and one of the most world-weary in Europe with a history dating back to the Romans in the first century. With a population close to two million, the city is the fourth largest in Germany. It is also the typical heartland for much of the nations cultural pride and glory.

It’s impossible to avoid the prominent sight of the River Rhine splitting Cologne in half. Cutting straight through the centre of the city, the river usually represents base camp for tourists.

As with most of the major German cities, Cologne has a tremendously rich history with cultural influence across the board. This is influence that affected much of the world through the country’s eventful past, and it can now be enjoyed through the many museums which the destination is famous for. An extensive examination of Cologne will reveal over 30 museums and literally hundreds of galleries. Most of these are highly recommended for their unique insight in to German culture and shouldn’t be missed on a passing visit to the city.

Widely considered the economic capital of Rhineland and its surrounding regions, Cologne has developed incredibly over the last twenty years. The city has benefited through easy accessibility and an influx of tourists, plus the development of specialised media sites to boost the opportunities for natives.

At the helm of this you’ll find Media Park, perhaps the finest example of how Cologne has spread its wings and developed in the post-war revolution. The downtown area is littered with opportunities for aspiring German businessmen and women, making the city extremely versatile in its ability to cater for so many different audiences.

Things have changed quite dramatically since World War 2 when a huge portion of the city had to be reconstructed due to Allied bombings.

Sitting on the bank of the River Rhine, you’ll find the quite majestic Cologne Cathedral. One of the world’s most famous cathedrals, it can be explored and admired from afar, making it one of the most noticeable tourist attractions for the city- and the country in fact. The landmark took some 600 years to complete and stands proudly over the distinguished Rhine shore. Its gothic medieval flavour marks it down as a must-see for anybody with so much as a passing architectural interest.

Most of the visitors who drop by tend to make a beeline for the museums upon arriving in the city. Cologne’s art scene is very much alive and regular exhibitions can be found with local work and historical relics on display. The Roman descent of the city can still be remembered with numerous ancient artefacts spread around the city.

For those who’ve tasted and enjoyed the pale Kölcsh beer, there’s plenty to look forward to. Kölcsh is brewed specifically in Cologne. A visit to one of the many famous German pubs is sure to introduce happy drinkers to the traditional brew. As with all German cities, there’s a popular taste for a good night out and your typical European drinking festivities are never too far away.

While this might not suit all comers, you only have to look as far as the World Cup in 2006 to realise that Cologne has much to offer when the sun goes down. Famed for a vibrant nightlife, if you visit the most metropolitan strips, there’s plenty of late night entertainment to break up a day of happy gallery browsing.

Travelling around the city is relatively pain free. An excellent transport infrastructure makes Cologne one of the most accessible regions in the whole of Europe. Trains, buses and an excellent layout make for a pleasantly simple stay – even if you don’t speak the native German tongue.

Cologne offers a comfortable standard of living for many Germans with a settled landscape and plenty of attractions. It might not be as popular as Berlin for would-be visitors, but it’s difficult to argue with the quiet charm of the city.
