The official guide to Cologne from KölnTourismus.
This vibrant city on the Rhine offers a wealth of cultural activities, international trade fairs and conferences, as well as numerous major events. Attractions such as Cologne Cathedral, which is recognized as a UNESCO World Heritage Site, and the city's 12 Romanesque churches leave an unforgettable impression on visitors. In addition, this cathedral city has a large number of museums and art galleries which organize a wide variety of exhibitions devoted to the city's history as well as modern and contemporary art.
Thanks to its shopping streets, narrow alleys in the traditional city centre, and unique flair, Cologne is one of Germany's most popular cities for shopping. Another big draw is Cologne's unusually lively nightlife. After all, Cologne has more pubs per capita than any other major city in Germany. More than 3,300 pubs, clubs and restaurants invite the visitor to enjoy a cool Kölsch beer. The "Cologne way of life" is highly infectious — and that's reason enough to pay Cologne a visit! The mobile phone travel guide will give you, among other things, extensive information and lots of tips about the city's tourist attractions, events, restaurants and hotels - whether you're using it at home to prepare for a visit or as a practical source of information when you're in Cologne.
