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?

Unsicht-Bar
Blind date with lamb. In the restaurant Unsicht-Bar both the food and the guests remain in the dark. Literally! Diners may decide in daylight what they want to order, but by the time it arrives they will be in complete darkness. Here you can't even make out the fork in front of your mouth, meaning guests have to use their remaining senses to a heightened degree which leads to a unique and more intense dining experience.   You can choose from lamb, fish, vegetarian and chicken á la carte dishes, all served by a blind waiter, who will shed light on the menu and advise you accordingly. Your surroundings are pitch-black, but the food is a shining light!

Water tower
Superlatives should be retained. That's exactly what interior architect Andreé Putman had in mind when converting Europe's tallest water tower into a fascinating luxury hotel. Punching a few holes in the walls was not going to suffice. High-quality materials and the somewhat angular floor plan due to the rounded outer wall lend the hotel a comfortable and stylish atmosphere.   Add to that W-LAN, a sauna, a limousine transfer service and a touch of art deco and the luxurious final package is complete. A roof-top, Michelin star restaurant crowns the hotel. If you have any further questions the excellent service team will no doubt provide you with the answers. Double room from EUR 175 per night.

Carnival Museum
Get your comedy nose on and get ready for some fun! The largest carnival museum in any German speaking country impresses guests both young and old with carnival floats, puppets and many other carnival facets, from the comical antiques to the less comical National Socialism to the delights of present day. In February the Cologne jesters know no bounds, as that's when carnival is celebrated in earnest. Sounds, images and various objects combine to present visitors with the true feeling and atmosphere of the carnival. The clowning around in Cologne is taken very seriously: 1.5 million viewers follow the Rosenmontagszug on television while 10,500 jesters take part in the procession. So why not get some practice in early: Kölle Alaaf!
