Where to stay in Cologne

Considered by many to be the cultural hub of Germany's northwest , the city of Cologne was rebuilt following the bombings of the Second World War and is today an intriguing blend of German modernity and the Gothic flavor of its surviving old town.

Germany's oldest City Hall is worth a visit thanks to its 15th century Gothic tower studded with 130 statues, while the Cathedral itself and its twin spires, gargoyles and graphic glass window is on the itinerary of every Cologne tourist. The city's Chocolate Museum is a different way to idle away a few hours as is a visit to Museum Ludwig, which holds a number of well-known Picasso and Andy Warhol pieces.

For those looking to discover more of the city, it's best to stick to walking or take a taxi as the tram and metro stations are only really useful if you are based a long way outside of the center. If you're looking to travel further afield, you could also consider renting a car in Cologne.

I went there driven by the beautiful cathedral (which is impressive, by the way), but was a little bit deceived by the rest of the city.

Great place, make sure you try the local Kölsch beer and eat a Döner sandwich

In my opinion: No. 3 City of Germany (after Berlin and Hamburg) - with more than one Million inhabitants it's the greatest town in the west of Germany. Town was bulid by Romans as Colonia Claudia Ara Aggrippinensium (CCAA) for more than 2000 years ago. That means also that Cologne is one of the oldest Cities in Europe. The Cologne Cathedral is the most visited building in the Country. Even the town is well known for the "fifth season", called Carnival. Often the People of Cologne say: Cologne is Not only a town, it's a feeling. Last but Not least there is a local Speciality called Kölsch, a beer.

One of my favorite cities in Europe - and sorely underrated. Most people pass right through or only come here on business, but if you stop and "smell the roses," you'll find Cologne enchanting and charming.
