Köln

The German city of Cologne (locally also Koelle) is located in North Rhine-Westphalia and has almost one million inhabitants. It is the fourth largest city in Germany. The city, popular for its cathedral, has a two thousand year history and is very famous for its carnival. Cologne is not as popular as the other large cities of Berlin, Hamburg and Munich, but is still the most popular destination in West Germany. Its inhabitants have the typical Rhenish, warm-hearted and easy-going attitude that you miss in other cities. This makes a unique appeal. In terms of urban planning and historic buildings, it is not as attractive as other German cities. But Cologne has an attractive downtown and a unique nightlife, which offers quaint pubs and special features to the carnival around. Last but not least influenced by the carnival, Cologne is a city with a special atmosphere.
