Diocesan town and carnival hotspot

The dome city of Cologne (Germany) is not only the biggest city in North Rhine Westphalia, but also one of the biggest cities in the whole of Germany with nearly 500,000 inhabitants.

It looks back on a history stretching 2,000 years, in which it was home to worldly and ecclesiastical power.

The location on the central Rhine and its role as a crossroads of important trade routes make this former Roman city founding (Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium) an extremely important trade location.

Cologne is the nation’s carnival hotspot (with unmatched freedom for fools) and known for its cultural and architectural heritage.

It is also a traditional location of many internationally significant events.
