About the city

Cologne is the oldest German city founded by Roman legionaries on the banks of the Rhine River more than 2000 years ago. Nowadays, the city has the status of one of the most developed cultural and economic centers in Germany.

For many centuries, the main symbol of the city remains the famous Cologne Cathedral built in the Gothic style. The construction of the cathedral began in 1248, but it was completed only by the end of the 19th century. The temple miraculously survived during the war. Nowadays, Cologne Cathedral is included in the UNESCO World Heritage List. The height of the towers of the cathedral reaches 157 meters, while its treasury exceeds the treasury of the Vatican. The frescoes, stained-glass windows, mosaics and sculptural compositions collected here make up a unique ensemble, and even the venerable art historians cannot assess the real value of it. The special pride of the Catholic community is the monumental crucifix of the 10th century, which is installed inside the building. Many people believe that this shrine has miraculous properties.

Among the secular buildings in Cologne, of particular interest to the city guests is the City Hall. Since the XIV century, the building has been rebuilt several times. During the post-war reconstruction, it was possible to achieve the best possible resemblance to the original project. The facade of the late Gothic tower is decorated with 124 sculptures depicting iconic personalities for the history of Cologne.

The city also offers fascinating excursions to its unique museums. The Chocolate Museum ranks first on the must-visit list. It is located just 10-minute leisurely walk from the center and looks like a ship. During the excursion, the guests of the museum will see with their own eyes the entire process of making chocolate and even visit the greenhouse with tropical plants, from which the ingredients for desserts are obtained. During the excursion, one can also taste delicious chocolate at the chocolate fountain, which looks like a fantastic bush.

Another unique museum is the Fragrance Museum, which provides visual representation of how aromas were obtained in different eras, which then could be sold in bottles. The museum also presents a collection of rare bottles.

The Museum Ludwig, the Roman-German Museum and the Wallraf–Richartz Museum are also popular among tourists.

A variety of restaurants, bars, cafes will bring double pleasure from visiting Cologne. In addition to excellent dishes of national German cuisine, one can find here the restaurants serving delicious masterpieces of Turkish, Persian, French and other cuisines of the world.
