The City

When you think of Cologne, you might think of:

  • the cathedral (the city’s landmark)
  • the media (Several TV companies have their head offices here.)
  • the carnival
  • Kölsch (a special type of beer from Cologne)
  • a liberal mindset (It is known for the largest gay pride parade in Germany.)
  • a long rich history (It was first settled in 4500 BC.)
  • multiculturalism (There are residents from over 100 different countries.)
