About Cologne

A vibrant and cheerful city, Cologne is a big hit with tourists for its grand sights, lively nightlife, and iconic beer, Kölsch. Brewed right in this German city, pair the drink with a grilled sausage or a pork knuckle as you soak up the atmosphere of the Kölsch beer halls. If you’re looking to see the city in full colour, several magnificent carnivals run throughout the year – think fancy-dress, singalongs, and non-stop dancing.

As Germany's fourth largest city, Cologne's enriched with more than 2,000 years of history and an abundance of sights. Dominating the city’s skyline, Cologne cathedral is a gothic masterpiece not to be missed. Another delight for art lovers is Museum Ludwig, home to one of the largest collections of Picasso works in the world. A perfect blend of culture, nightlife and festivities, there’s something for everyone in Cologne.

Flying to Cologne for the Euros

Cologne Stadium will be the backdrop for England's all-important game against Slovenia, which rounds off their group on 25 June. The spectacle can be watched at the fan zone at Heumarkt – enjoy the live action on the big screen, and the electric atmosphere with a Kölsche in hand. Or you can mingle with other fans at a public screening in Tanzbrunnen, with live music and a crowd to rival any stadium.
