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?

Apropos
Magenta is the new lavender. The designers made their decision and that's what they got for this concept store. The colour is resplendent at the entrance, it fills the shelves of the shoe salon, adds a special touch to the men's fashion and is splashed across the walls behind the eveningwear. On the topic of colour, the famous red shoes by Christian Louboutin can of course be found here alongside Miu Miu, Prada, Gucci and all of the other usual suspects in the luxury selection. If your head begins to spin take a break in the classy Fischermanns' restaurant. There's even something for art lovers: the store regularly holds vernissages in its venerable hall.

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.

Epi
Crispy on the outside, soft in the middle: take a bite into your baguette and be catapulted to the Champs-Élysées. Passers-by simply cannot resist peeking through the windows of this bakery, which display the haute couture of French baking and leave the mouth watering.   Once inside the tasting commences: the butter croissants melt on the tongue, the éclairs suppress any thoughts of calories and the wonderful tartines embody the dreams of any Francophile. To complement the various delights organic espresso, wine and a good serving of joie de vivre are available.

Motel One
Motel Ones are currently springing up like mushrooms. Vienna, Salzburg, Brussels, Edinburgh, Berlin, Hamburg or Frankfort range among the locations. And these are only a few locations of the altogether 42 hotels of the German low budget design hotel brand of Dieter Müller. Cologne has now two of them: one in Cologne West and - since last autumn - one in Cologne Waidmarkt.   Cologne and its 2000 year-old history as well as the French Gothic facade of the cathedral are very venerable. The concept of the aspiring hotel chain is quite the opposite - and a pleasant contrast: a central, well-connected location with focus on young, modern design and affordable prices. In addition turquoise-chocolate brown combinations when it comes to the interior and edgy luminaries (spheric lamps for geometry fans at the bar, nugget-like luminaries in the One-Lounge). In Cologne the new Motel One Waidmarkt is located directly in the central city. Not far away from the cathedral.
