Cologne - from Roman settlement to a modern metropolis

Cologne - Latin Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium - is an independent city in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Cologne is also the most populous city in the state with about 1.1 million inhabitants. The city is best known for Cologne Cathedral and its Romanesque churches.

Cologne is also rich in an eventful history. The city's history dates back more than 2,000 years and spans the period from Roman settlement, through the Middle Ages, to modern times. In its past, Cologne's favorable location on the Rhine made it an important trading city.


Today, Cologne is a modern trading center and home to numerous companies in the chemical and automotive industries. Likewise, numerous trade fairs are held annually in the Rhine metropolis. In addition, television and radio stations such as RTL or Westdeutscher Rundfunk are located in Cologne - as well as film studios, music producers and publishing and media houses.

The urban area of Cologne is funnel-shaped and lies in the Cologne Bay. The Rhine has always had a strong influence on the development of the city - only the two city states of Berlin and Hamburg have a larger urban area in Germany. So there is a lot for you to discover!
