The city of Cologne is beautifully divided by the river Rhine. It is Germany's fourth largest city with just over 1 million inhabitants. Cologne is known for its strong trade and for the fact that a large number of television companies and book publishers have their operations in the city. Since then, the city has also given the name to the perfume type Eau-de-cologne!
If you want to talk about sights in Cologne, you must start with the mighty cathedral Kölner Doml, completed in 1880, it stands beautifully next to the river Rhine, with its two towers of 157 meters each. It is one of Germany's most famous buildings and is a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Cologne is also known as the city of churches and during the Middle Ages it was the city with the most monasteries and churches.
Another building worth seeing is the town hall in Gothic style which is best known for having its beautiful mosaic and being decorated with 124 statues along its 5 floors.
The city is known for the creation of the perfume type Eau de Cologne and in Farina Hause, opposite the town hall, lived the former founder of the factory and today there is a perfume museum (Fragrance Museum).
