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?

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.

Atrium Rheinhotel
In hotels furnished with a retro look it's easy to feel like you have been dropped into a 70s science fiction film. That's not the case at Atrium Rheinhotel. Here you can admire the retro theme without being overawed by it. And black and white philosophers will love it here: colours have been banned from the atrium, while the rooms have a purist finish. Yet you can't have everything as the fresh flowers bring a radiant contrast - alas back tulips are not yet available. What one wouldn't expect to find in this designer hotel are the ceiling lamps, which suspiciously look like they're from IKEA. Nevertheless, business travellers and others, who concentrate on the bigger picture, are guaranteed to feel satisfied here. Double room EUR 108 per night.

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!

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.
