Top Tourist Tips for Travel in Cologne
Cologne, or Koln in German, is the country's fourth largest city and has an approximate population of less than one million. Interestingly about this city, over 17% of its inhabitants are non-German and many are of Turkish descent. With this fact in mind, it is unsurprising that there are over 120,000 Muslims in Cologne.
In a similar fashion to most German cities, Cologne has excellent cycling links and priority crossing for bike users. The city also has incredible train services not only within its own borders, but also with the rest of Germany and high speed links to Amsterdam, Brussels and Paris.
In the Belgian Quarter of Cologne, you can find the best nightlife, bars and clubs. However one must also check out both the Latin Quarter and the St Severin Quarter to truly soak up what this city has to offer after hours.
And of cause, Cologne is home to Germany's most famous tourist attraction the Cologne Cathedral. Construction of the cathedral began in 1248; however it was not completed for another 600 years. But the wait was worth it and it is now the most famous sightseeing venue in all of Germany.
