If you were just to equate Cologne with its boisterous pre-Lenten carnival, or even its Eau de Cologne, you'd be doing the Rhine metropolis an injustice. This cathedral city is a metropolis brimming with history and culture, as well as a modern multicultural haven overflowing with creative talent. This practical pocket-sized guide highlights all the international cuisine that has found a home here as well telling you where to get more down-to-earth, local fare.
The Best Of pages recommend things to do for free in the shadow of the cathedral, and have tips for rainy days and where you can relax and put your feet up. In addition you'll find out about the hip fashion of the Belgian Quarter and places to party with the in-crowd. The Insider Tips reveal why it's worth visiting the design district of Ehrenfeld and at which bars you can discover the city's famous Kölsch beer.
Panels in each chapter suggest things to do if you're on a tight budget and where you might pick up some real bargains, while the Where to Start boxes highlight the best places to begin your exploring. The City Walks take you on a journey into the past and get to the heart of the Cologne psyche and finally, the Dos and Don'ts explain how to keep on the right side of the waiter in the beer hall and how to avoid getting your car towed away.
