Cologne, a 2,000-year-old city spanning the Rhine River in western Germany, is the region’s cultural hub. A landmark of High Gothic architecture set amid reconstructed old town, the twin-spired Cologne Cathedral is also known for its gilded medieval reliquary and sweeping river views. The adjacent Museum Ludwig showcases 20th-century art, including many masterpieces by Picasso, and the Romano-Germanic Museum houses Roman antiquities.
Köln is the German fourth largest city and fourth most populated city in Germany, after Berlin, Hamburg, and Munich at the state of North Rhine- Westphalia within the Rhine- Ruhr metropolitan. It known for it’s Kölner Dom (Cologne Cathedral), and it’s oldest and largest university in Europe.
