Flight to Cologne


Cologne is one of Germany's oldest cities, having been founded in the year 38 BC. It is situated along the Rhine river and is often invaded by flood waters from the Rhine. It is a bustling city and home to numerous television and radio production stations. It also boasts to be the host of Europe's largest comedy festival. Cologne is also home to the largest gay community of Germany. A definite must see is the Cologneer Dom. You can tour this magnificent cathedral, except during mass times, and if you are feeling energetic you can even take the 509 steps to the top of the south tower. Take a trip and fly with Austrian Airlines to Cologne and enjoy its diverse culture and traditions.

Cologne

STAY in Cologne:

Motel One

Motel Ones are currently springing up like mushrooms. Vienna, Salzburg, Brussels, Edinburgh, Berlin, Hamburg or Frankfort range among the locations. And these are only a few locations of the altogether 42 hotels of the German low budget design hotel brand of Dieter Müller. Cologne has now two of them: one in Cologne West and - since last autumn - one in Cologne Waidmarkt.   Cologne and its 2000 year-old history as well as the French Gothic facade of the cathedral are very venerable. The concept of the aspiring hotel chain is quite the opposite - and a pleasant contrast: a central, well-connected location with focus on young, modern design and affordable prices. In addition turquoise-chocolate brown combinations when it comes to the interior and edgy luminaries (spheric lamps for geometry fans at the bar, nugget-like luminaries in the One-Lounge). In Cologne the new Motel One Waidmarkt is located directly in the central city. Not far away from the cathedral.

The New Yorker

Deutz once built the four-stroke engine here. Today only the design is tuned up. Architect Johannes J. Adams is the man to thank for the stylish masterpiece, as it was Adams who retained the brick walls and designed the purist rooms to complement them.   The events at the hotel, in contrast, are far from minimalistic: concerts, exhibitions and readings fill the event calendar. An idyllic garden and regular live cooking shows complete the motto of the charming boutique hotel: ?eccentric, emotional, enjoyable, especial'.   We can add one more to that list: exceptionally cheap! Double room from EUR 90.

Hopper Hotel

The former Kolpinghaus was once the meeting point for travelling craftsmen. Today it is home to high-quality photography. The basic structure of the building remains, including the original stepped gable and lattice windows. The teak wood and marble-tiled bathrooms are new, as are the introductions of the ensemble theatre in the vaulted cellar and the photography that adorns the walls. Among them are images by August Sander and Ullrich Tillmann, which only go to reinforce the historic ambience in the hotel.   Even in the restaurant you'll find creative dishes served with a portion of nostalgia: the historic architecture is reminiscent of the original dining room of the craftsmen lodging. One night in a double room from EUR 175.

SHOPPING in Cologne:

Engelelf

The Swedes may well be the kings of furniture design, but what you can find in Engelelf's housewares department isn't half bad: take for example the bottle opener in the form of a table-football player, or the red plastic deer antler which double as a coat hook. Engelelf is also imaginative when it comes to fashion: the one-of-a-kind creations of young designers are often very limited in supply and therefore quickly snapped up - meaning occasional customers promptly become regulars. Traditional shoppers looking for consistency will feel out of place here: even the art on the walls changes constantly - one day there are digital prints, the next day there's photography, then paintings a day later. If you don't want to miss something, you'll have to stop by daily!

Daniels

If the airline once again sends your luggage in the opposite direction, you'll still be well suited and booted for your meeting: Daniels has classic clothing for all types of business people. There's also matching jewellery, shoes and handbags by Ash, Htc and Goti. But the best feature is the range of sizes, with Daniels catering for both ends of the scale. Unfortunately the nobly designed shop is styled to such a degree that you'll almost be ashamed of your own outfit. Be sure to wash your hands before you handle anything! For today's businessmen there's an additional branch at Neumarkt 10, while the kids also have their own shop floor at Ehrenstraße 41.

Salon Ludvík

If you're looking for that special dress for stepping out onto the red carpet, you can do a lot worse than head to Salon Ludvík. Here tailored art is conceived and created for elegant television stars. Fenja Ludwig's motto is ?Panta rhei' (everything is in flux). Flowing materials, low-cut backs and dove motifs stand at the forefront of the chic label. The couture icon is in touch with her craft, emphasising the female body without restraining it, while bridging the gap with her unmistakeable style between Parisian tradition and modern Cologne.

EAT in Cologne:

Parklounge

Dine in a glass palace. Skulpturenpark is not only a must because of its artwork, but also its trendy lounge. The view is amazing. The food is a delight. Hase Catering is behind the delicacies in the stylish setting. With a panorama view of the park events come accompanied by finger food, Asian treats or healthy dishes low in carbohydrates.   Even if you're not on the guest list you should still take in the Parklounge. Claus Föttinger decked out the event location in a cool retro look with his photo collages. And while you're there don't forget to check out the Skulpturenpark, which has some art of its own.

Feldküche

Feldküche's motto rings true: ?We're not Prada - we get by without big gestures'. Feldküche is surprisingly sincere and honest, and lovingly furnished. The difference is made by the wild mix of brick walls and baroque paintings. Duck served on pickled cabbage meets fish and chips, grappa mascarpone meets Tarte Tatin.   The kitchen is as open as the heart of chef Edwin Paas, who serves variety on a daily basis and never loses his love of all things culinary. To round off a wonderful meal there's always a glass of ouzo. Certainly worth returning to!

Chino Latino

London, Leeds, Nottingham and Cologne. Apart from three English cities there's now also a subsidiary of the Pan-Asian restaurant concept with a special twist in the city on the Rhine.   The menu unites influences from China, South East Asia and modern Japan. That means more specifically: there is sushi, dim sum and tempura but also main courses like red snapper grilled in banana leaf with lemon grass-coconut-sauce or black codfish in chilli-garlic-marinade with mango-caviar. Afterwards the guests can choose between desserts like yogurt cake with a liquid core, passion fruit jelly and blue curaçao air or red bull snow with lemon fruit salad. The dishes are served step-by-step. In this way a communicative and relaxed atmosphere is created. And in the Latin American cocktail bar the barkeeper serves drinks with fine and fresh ingredients.

SIGHTS in Cologne:

Galerie Berndt

Fans of modern art will be impressed: the gallery sells work by Kandinsky, David Hockney, Gerhard Richter and Joseph Beuys, and stylistically lies somewhere between abstract expressionism, constructivism and tusche on cartridge paper.   Yet the old masters Picasso and Matisse are also represented, allowing the less educated art lovers to benefit. It begs the question of whether the Picasso really will go over the counter and at what price. If you're less than certain concerning your choice of artwork, you can call upon the in-house experts for advice. Only then can you say for certain that you possess art with a seal of approval!

Cologne Cathedral

The cathedral: it is easy to locate as it acts as a navigation point for locating everything else. Standing at 157 metres tall it was for many years the city's tallest building. Today only the telecommunications tower reaches higher into the sky. Nevertheless life in Cologne mostly revolves around the monumental construction - that is of course until the jesters take over. Those who pass through the great entrance as non-believers may well find themselves reconsidering once inside. The giant halls leave visitors feeling so small and insignificant that humbleness will take care of itself. But the cathedral also moves with the times. When Gerhard Richter created the south transept window in 2007, he chose instead of the proposed Bible scene to design a colourful mosaic, which resembles the pixels of a computer screen. Although the original reaction was one of anger, the uproar has since settled down leaving Richter's work to enlighten church goers and art critics alike.

Arty Farty

He'd love nothing better than to wander around in his silk bath rope all day long and sell art - this is what gallery owner Coskun Gueven has once said. He probably doesn't wear his silk bath rope all day long, but he does sell art in his gallery Arty Farty. The focus: street art.   The monthly altering exhibitions feature young artists' positions which are deeply anchored in urban subcultures. During the last two years Arty Farty has developed into a metropolitan and non-academic art scene. The visitors of the gallery are especially interested in contemporary trends outside the usual art business. You find graffiti and illustrations, sculptures and photography and artists like Swanski, Morcky, Raymond Lemstra, Will Barras, Joska, Sozy One, Beekei, Herr Schulze and Wayne Horse have already presented their works here.
