Cologne: Cologne hosts many galleries, museums and trade fairs, and also the Rhine and the Cathedral. The city also offers many shopping streets and has the highest concentration of pubs and taverns in Germany. Whether there is street music on the Hohe Strasse or galas in the modern opera house, or the annual music festival along the inner ring road or carnival in the entire city - in Cologne all this becomes synthesized into a vivacious work of art in a metropolis boasting more than a million inhabitants which, despite its size, has never lost its neighbourly character.
