Cologne-Bonn

The city of Cologne was founded by the Romans in 50 AD. The impressive dome is Germany's largest cathedral and a masterpiece of Gothic architecture. Both Cologne and Bonn have a good variety of public parks and offer lots of leisure activities along the Rhine.

Daniels
If the airline once again sends your luggage in the opposite direction, you'll still be well suited and booted for your meeting: Daniels has classic clothing for all types of business people. There's also matching jewellery, shoes and handbags by Ash, Htc and Goti. But the best feature is the range of sizes, with Daniels catering for both ends of the scale. Unfortunately the nobly designed shop is styled to such a degree that you'll almost be ashamed of your own outfit. Be sure to wash your hands before you handle anything! For today's businessmen there's an additional branch at Neumarkt 10, while the kids also have their own shop floor at Ehrenstraße 41.

Osman 30
Osman 30 is decked out in innocent white, but when your bill arrives you may feel a pang of guilt: one set menu weighs in at a lofty EUR 44. But Osman does ensure that your time there is remembered more as an event than a meal. The starters are wheeled to the table in their own hors d'oeuvre trolley. Typical main courses are braised veal cheeks and Ramelsloher poussin. The trolley is then back in action again for the desserts.   One big plus of the restaurant is the breathtaking view of Cologne Cathedral, the Lanxess Arena and even of Leverkusen. A little hint before you tuck in: order an extra big serviette to avoid any embarrassing spills on the all white furniture!

Sights

Sights in Cologne-Bonn
Cologne Cathedral
The cathedral: it is easy to locate as it acts as a navigation point for locating everything else. Standing at 157 metres tall it was for many years the city's tallest building. Today only the telecommunications tower reaches higher into the sky. Nevertheless life in Cologne mostly revolves around the monumental construction - that is of course until the jesters take over. Those who pass through the great entrance as non-believers may well find themselves reconsidering once inside. The giant halls leave visitors feeling so small and insignificant that humbleness will take care of itself. But the cathedral also moves with the times. When Gerhard Richter created the south transept window in 2007, he chose instead of the proposed Bible scene to design a colourful mosaic, which resembles the pixels of a computer screen. Although the original reaction was one of anger, the uproar has since settled down leaving Richter's work to enlighten church goers and art critics alike.
