Rich cultural life
Cologne’s strong side is its cultural life. With many festivals and carnivals, the city can keep you entertained for months. The biggest festivity in Cologne, and in many other German cities for that matter, is the Karneval, each February, with a stunning street parade, featuring masks, costumes, free music, free candy and free booze. Metropolis Cinema features movies in English, and for those who prefer more classical Cologne entertainment, the Kölner Philharmonie and the Oper der Städt Köln are a must.
