SURROUNDED BY WARMTH AND CHEER ON THE RIVER RHINE:
“DAACH ZESAMME!” – A COLOGNE WELCOME TO OUR CAMPUS
Life is never dull in this vibrant city, even when it isn’t full of carnival revelers – whether you like it or not, the city draws you in. Its long and eventful past are reflected in beautiful historic buildings such as the world-famous cathedral, the city hall, city walls, Romanesque churches, the “4711” building, and the modern architecture of the Rheinauhafen urban regeneration project. This tradition is matched equally by an innovative versatility, pioneering spirit, and wealth of ideas. If you need a little peace and quiet, visit one of the city’s many parks or let your mind drift as you stroll through the old town or along the banks of the Rhine.
With over one million inhabitants, Cologne is also one of Germany’s most important business locations with a fittingly diverse economic structure. Craftsmanship and trade have traditionally had a very strong presence here. Today, insurance companies, media businesses, automotive manufacturers, as well as the chemicals and food industries are some of its most important employers, offering excellent opportunities for the city’s students.
