Cologne as a business location
Exciting and cosmopolitan
Cologne’s real hallmark is the people who live here. Tolerant, cosmopolitan and hospitable, they give this cathedral city its special flair. And this metropolis of one million inhabitants also fascinates visitors with its cultural offerings. There’s a wealth of museums, theatres and art galleries. And you can sample the “Cologne way of life” in the city’s many restaurants, pubs and breweries. Whichever part of the world you’re coming from, Cologne offers you an attractive business environment and many ways to relax after a busy and successful day at the fair.
