COLOGNE - the best insider tips for vacation, holiday & travel
It’s only a 20- minute drive between Dusseldorf and Cologne, which has led to competition between the two cities and Cologne always trying to match its cooler and chic neighbor. The competition is unnecessary as the beautiful city of Cologne has plenty to offer for itself. Just a quick walk around the town will reveal medieval churches, remnants of a roman wall as well as avant-garde concert halls and theatres.
Cologne is the centre for Germany’s growing media industry with several TV stations broadcasting from the city including WDR and RTL. This has brought new life to the city and the number of Brauhauser and restaurants is growing all the time.
Sport is important too and locals follow Koeln football team with religious fervor, golf is also popular with several courses being available.
The historical landmark of Bergisch Gladbach is next door to Cologne and well worth a visit, the world famous Hotel Schloss Bensberg is a popular and grand hotel that draws visitors from all over the world, especially to the gourmet temple restaurant and delicatessen.
The best time to visit Cologne is during the summer months or in November when the carnival takes place.
