Cologne - a vibrant metropolis with a 2,000-year history and a dynamic economic and scientific hub

With over one million residents, Cologne is Germany's oldest major city. Remnants of its Roman history can still be seen today between the City Hall and the Cathedral, the Rhine River and Rudolfplatz. Visitors who venture below ground will find remains of ancient Rome: sections of walls, coins and decorative mosaics.

One of the most beautiful of these mosaics can be admired in the Romano-Germanic Museum. Cologne Cathedral is not only Cologne's but also Germany's most important tourist attraction. Each year more than 6.5 million people from all over the world visit this Gothic cathedral, which was listed as a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996. With its 157.38 metres in height, the Cathedral, which is dedicated to St. Peter, is the second tallest church in Europe and the third tallest in the world.

Cologne has become one of the most important economic centers in Europe in the past few years. The central station is a major European railway hub; the Cologne/Bonn Airport is an important location for low-cost carriers; it has good connections to the network of interregional motorways. Economic life in the city has traditionally been dominated by strong companies from the service and media sector as well as the chemical and automobile industries.

Domains with strong potential for the future such as biotechnology and life sciences continue to gain importance. There are many scientific research centers. With its 90,000 students, 2,000 scientists and 7,000 research assistants, Cologne is one of the leading scientific locations in Germany. Renowned research institutes like the German-Aerospace Center (DLR) and four Max Planck Institutes have made their home in Cologne as well.
