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?

Hotel Savoy
Globetrotters will feel at home here: the Savoy's rooms are decorated in a range of styles including African, American, Asian and European, offering guests a colourful mix somewhere between bamboo and bonsai, lido and lotus, out of Africa and oriental. In order to see all of the continents you'll have to stay longer, but for short stays the 650m² beauty farm and the wicker beach chairs on the terrace facing Cologne Cathedral will keep a smile on your face. And when you're done with vodka martinis in the James Bond Suite, you can skip across to Divas Bar and take your pick from a vast selection of cigars and wines. Life can be so simple! You barely have to step outside. One night in a double room from EUR 185.

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.

Bauers
A packed lunch has never tasted so good. Never before have school friends been so green with envy. The sandwiches by restaurant specialist Christian Bauer offer lightly salted butter spread on sourdough bread, covered with gouda, Milano salami, fig mustard or something equally as good. The crust is crispy, the middle succulent. What more could you want from a sandwich? Perhaps a soup or a cake or some rustic flair? They have it all! As everything is freshly made, short waiting times are to be expected. It may well be quicker to pick up a meal at McDonald's, but if you want to find crispy lettuce in your sandwich, then skip the golden arches and head to Bauers.

What to see in Cologne

What to see in Cologne
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.
