Land Nordrhein-Westfalen Things to Do: 63 reviews and 65 photos

  Unmistakable Köln
by DanielF

Köln, with a population of almost one million, is not only Germany`s fourth city, but the biggest urban center in Europe's biggest conurbation: the so-called Rhein-Ruhr Gebiet. This giantic urban sprawl, formed by the coalescence of many towns and cities along the banks of the rivers Rhine and Ruhr, is argaubly the industrial heart of Europe.

The huge cathedral to Cologne is still one of the icons of Germany and reigns with majesty over the city's waterfront.

Directions: In the middle of Rhineland.
