Cologne Travel Guide

by our Germany expert Terry Emery
 
Terry EmeryCologne Cathedral is a miracle in several ways. A true masterpiece of gothic architecture, it survived as an island in a sea of destruction after the carpet bombing of WW II. The city centre has been superbly restored but is still dominated by the Cathedral. The world renowned fragrance Eau de Cologne was created by an Italian perfumer, Farina, in the German city, and given a perhaps more elegant name in French than the harsh Kolnisch Wasser. (The 4711 brand is the original factory/house number.) Cologne boasts the biggest Carnival in Europe and no fewer than eight colorful Christmas markets – one in front of the Cathedral naturally.
