Cologne, with just over one million inhabitants, is a cultural and economic center in the Rhine region. The city owes its international flair to its many tourists and to students from all over the world, who wish to study at one of Cologne’s numerous universities. The cathedral city is especially popular with young people as it has so many leisure activities to offer. The whole year through there are many attractions such as Cologne Carnival (also fondly known as the 5th season by the Cologne folk), the annual Rhine firework display, Christopher Street Day as well as many other music and theater festivals. A visit to one of the many important museums, or the Philharmonic, rounds off the cultural experience. The most outstanding sight and the city’s landmark is of course, and will always remain Cologne Cathedral, which in 1996 became a world heritage site. Starting with the Romans, Cologne can look back on over 2000 years of history; you can come across well preserved remains of this throughout the city.

As Germany’s most important media center, this Rhine city is host to the largest German radio and television broadcaster, as well as many private television channels, film and television production companies. Distinguished companies like Ford, Bayer and Microsoft are all situated in this region. Throughout the year visitors to the Cologne trade fair can visit prestigious international trade fairs like Art Cologne.
