Probably the cultural hub of Western Germany, Cologne spans the Rhine river with its impressive twin-spired Gothic Cathedral dominating the skyline. Sitting amid the old town reconstructed after WWII, the Cathedral is famous for its collection for holy relics and for its sweeping views across the Rhine. 
The Museum Ludwig is situated close by, showcasing many masterpieces by Picasso, and the city’s Romano-Germanic Museum houses Roman antiquities dating from the city’s foundation by the Romans in 38BC.  
Walking through Cologne can throw many surprises, as ancient Roman Walls sit in the same spaces as plain Post War buildings, medieval churches and more avant-garde structures. 
There is a great feeling of bonhomie everywhere, with locals celebrating life all year round in one of the many beer halls of the Altstadt (old town). The city is also a chocoholic’s heaven, and a visit to the Lindt Museum is an absolute must.  
Here, visitors can learn about chocolate’s history, see inside a vintage chocolate shop and experience the sights and sounds of a chocolate factory, before sampling the wares.  
Its location puts it at a convenient crossroads in Europe, with regular rail links north, south, east and west to other major cities like Brussels, Hamburg, Berlin and Munich.
