Cologne

Cologne

Cologne is one of Germany's oldest cities, having been founded in the year 38 BC. It is situated along the Rhine river and is often invaded by flood waters from the Rhine. It is a bustling city and home to numerous television and radio production stations. It also boasts to be the host of Europe's largest comedy festival. Cologne is also home to the largest gay community of Germany. A definite must see is the Cologneer Dom. You can tour this magnificent cathedral, except during mass times, and if you are feeling energetic you can even take the 509 steps to the top of the south tower. Take a trip and fly with Austrian Airlines to Cologne and enjoy its diverse culture and traditions.

SIGHTS in Cologne

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!

SHOPPING in Cologne

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.

Le Moissonnier

What does it for you? Fresh and firm, mature and round, or deep and complex? No, we're not talking about men, but the wine at Le Moissonnier. Yet not only the wine card reads like a who-is-who of the winemakers guild.   The food menu tells a similar culinary tale. For example: filet of Breton sole with a brown butter sauce and truffle jus, grilled fennel bulbs with tomato essence, Calamaretti and mange tout with mint.   Sound good? To accompany a splendid meal the restaurant even serves up a Jugendstil ambience. Et voilà, c'est formidable!

The New Yorker

Deutz once built the four-stroke engine here. Today only the design is tuned up. Architect Johannes J. Adams is the man to thank for the stylish masterpiece, as it was Adams who retained the brick walls and designed the purist rooms to complement them.   The events at the hotel, in contrast, are far from minimalistic: concerts, exhibitions and readings fill the event calendar. An idyllic garden and regular live cooking shows complete the motto of the charming boutique hotel: ?eccentric, emotional, enjoyable, especial'.   We can add one more to that list: exceptionally cheap! Double room from EUR 90.
