Places to Stay in Cologne
Located on the eastern banks of the river Rhine, Old City is Cologne’s centre. From the city’s landmark cathedral, which marks the area’s northern point, narrow streets lead into the city’s historic quarter, where restored 14th- century houses mix with the city’s cluster of Romanesque churches. One of the most beautiful is the 12th-century Church of St Martin on Martinspförtchen.
North of Cologne’s Old City, the central Neustadt-Nord is a modern, lively area. The glass and steel MediaPark complex hosts some of Germany’s most important TV stations and media companies, while the Belgian Quarter, between Aachener Strasse and Friesenplatz, is a prime nightlife spot.
Located across the river Rhine from Cologne’s centre, Deutz hosts the city’s Fair Trade Grounds, where renowned fairs like the photography show Photokina take place. The Lanxess Arena, formerly known as KölnArena, attracts big names in rock and pop, as well as high-profile handball and ice hockey games. From the area’s Kennedy Embankment visitors have a great view of Cologne’s skyline.
