Cologne is one of the largest cities in Germany, playing the role of an important economic and cultural center. It is located on the banks of the Rhine River in western Germany. With a history spanning over 2000 years, it will certainly surprise even the most sophisticated tourists with its atmosphere and architectural values.
The symbol of the city is Cologne Cathedral. The shrine became one of the few religious buildings that survived after the terrible bombing of World War II. The cathedral was built in the Gothic style and is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The incredible architecture of the cathedral includes majestic portals and towers, which are woven in a fancy pattern like black lace, while the outlines of the cathedral represent a Latin cross. The magnificent stained-glass windows manufactured by the best medieval craftsmen are particularly impressive. The visitors to the city are also impressed by the huge height of the cathedral, which is 157 m.
Among the secular buildings in Cologne, the City Hall is of particular interest to visitors. The building has been reconstructed several times since the 14th century, but during the post-war reconstruction, it was possible to achieve the best possible resemblance to the original design. The facade of the tower of the City Hall is decorated with 124 sculptures depicting iconic figures in the history of Cologne. Every three hours, the bronze bells at the top of the tower play melodies that are known to every German.
The city has many interesting museums. The most interesting of these include the Chocolate Museum, the Fragrance Museum, the Museum Ludwig, and the Roman-Germanic Museum.
Cologne offers the greatest shopping opportunities. The city also houses a large number of cafes and restaurants offering a variety of cuisines from around the world. However, the most popular among city guests are the restaurants serving traditional German cuisine.
