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?

Schloss Bensberg
At Grandhotel Schloss Bensberg the husband and wife General Directors stroll around with their noses pointing toward the ceiling. However it has nothing to do with arrogance, but instead the breathtaking view of Cologne. To enjoy it you have to go slightly out of your way with the hotel located twelve kilometres from the city, but it`s worth every meter: the three-hundred-year-old baroque palace not only offers historic masonry, but also a spa in a class of its own and a jeweller for a touch of extra class. If that`s not to your liking then sit back in the Jacuzzi in your own room, turn down the lights and enjoy the home cinema facility. Schloss Bensberg serves French cuisine in Vendome (of course decorated with Michelin stars) and Mediterranean fare in Enoteca. Wines from an exceptionally long wine card are available in the hotel`s two bars. Bensberg is classic, conservative and simply kingly.

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!

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.

Zeitgeist Cologne
If you enter Zeitgeist than you can let loose of any ideas that you will leave with an untouched wallet. Many of the design products will spontaneously vault your heart to a higher frequency and let the sweat glands of your palms work hard. The cerebrum shouts: want! For example the iPod docking station in the shape of a bear by Be@rbrick, which women find cute and men cool. Or, who would not want one of the stylish Dom Pérignon Vintage 2000 bottles in Andy Warhol edition stand in his or her shelve? Or travel around with the Pentax Optio NB 1000 and then shine out of the tourist masses with the camera in self-made Lego design? If you live this kind of zeitgeist, you will leave this store as a happy person.
