Cologne

Cologne

Cologne is Germany's fourth biggest city and boasts 7 different bridges over the Rhine! Cologne has many different sides - Roman, Medieval and Modern - so there's something here for everyone. If churches are your interest, you should pay a visit to Cologne Cathedral which is one of the most famous architectural monuments in Germany, or what about the twelve Romanic churches which are located within the city walls? In addition to churches, there are also museums to be seen, including the Roemisch-Germanisches Museum which details the city's Roman history. If you prefer the outdoors, then the Botanical Gardens and zoo might be more up your street. As with any other big city, Cologne offers a variety of shopping and eating. So why not fly with Austrian Airlines to Cologne and discover this amazing place for yourself?

4711
If you go shopping in Cologne, you simply cannot pass 4711 without venturing in. It's said that even Napoleon swore by the Eau de Cologne. But back in his day it was sold as a cure-all for listlessness and tiredness. There are other products for that nowadays, but the Eau de Cologne still does a fine job against strong smells. The 4711 main office in the centre of Cologne is a paradise for souvenir hunters. Here you'll find Kölnisch Wasser for the whole family, as well as authentic Kölnisch Wasser shower gel, soap and nostalgia packages. Even the shop itself gets in on the act, sporting a 4711 fountain at the entrance. Discover the exhibition dedicated to the history of the product on the gallery and the tapestry that depicts Napoleon as a graffiti artist. Curious? Then head to the fragrant delights!

Feldküche
Feldküche's motto rings true: ?We're not Prada - we get by without big gestures'. Feldküche is surprisingly sincere and honest, and lovingly furnished. The difference is made by the wild mix of brick walls and baroque paintings. Duck served on pickled cabbage meets fish and chips, grappa mascarpone meets Tarte Tatin.   The kitchen is as open as the heart of chef Edwin Paas, who serves variety on a daily basis and never loses his love of all things culinary. To round off a wonderful meal there's always a glass of ouzo. Certainly worth returning to!

The New Yorker
Deutz once built the four-stroke engine here. Today only the design is tuned up. Architect Johannes J. Adams is the man to thank for the stylish masterpiece, as it was Adams who retained the brick walls and designed the purist rooms to complement them.   The events at the hotel, in contrast, are far from minimalistic: concerts, exhibitions and readings fill the event calendar. An idyllic garden and regular live cooking shows complete the motto of the charming boutique hotel: ?eccentric, emotional, enjoyable, especial'.   We can add one more to that list: exceptionally cheap! Double room from EUR 90.

Pollerwiesen
Come in and chill out! For 15 years now Pollerwiesen has been a stop for international DJ lines in dub, club, house, techno and pretty much everything else that goes with electronic party music. There's no shortage of space: the 20,000m² is ample space for up to 10,000 revellers. If you can't tear yourself away then opt for a season ticket. For an investment of 48 euros you can be involved every Sunday. And as the party gets going in the afternoon, you'll still have plenty of time to enjoy the Cologne nightlife and party around the clock.
