Trade fairs in the cathedral and media city

Cologne has been a crossroads for people, goods and ideas for 2,000 years. The city on the Rhine is a magnet for tourists, a city of culture, trade fairs and the media, and also an important intersection in Europe with ten autobahns and the continent's most important railway junction. Cologne is also renowned for its Rhenish exuberance, quality of life and its annual carnival.
