Living in Cologne: discover your new city!

Are you thinking about renting a Placed apartment in Cologne? Then take a look at what Cologne has to offer: visit Cologne Cathedral, enjoy the traditional brewery culture and wander through the most beautiful quarters of the city. Or get your bearings by climbing the 533 steps of Cologne Cathedral! At a height of almost 100 metres, you’ll have a perfect view over Cologne city centre and the Rhine. Take the Cologne Cable Car and combine the trip with a visit to the Flora botanical garden, the zoo, the thermal baths or the Rhine park.

The green metropolis: feel at home in Cologne

Cologne has a good amount of parks and green spaces for a major city: the Volksgarten in Cologne’s Südstadt district is perfect for sunbathing, barbecuing and slacklining. The huge Vorgebirgspark is ideal for long walks and jogging. In the Botanical Garden, you can take in plants from all parts and climate zones of the world. Cologne even has a beach: there are many small sections of beach waiting to be explored in the southern part of the city towards Bonn, in Rodenkirchen for example. So if you’re a fan of nature, there are plenty of good reasons why renting an apartment in Cologne is a good idea, and why you’ll feel right at home in no time.

Raining outside? Discover Cologne’s museums

Museum Ludwig, the Museum of East Asian Art and the Fragrance Museum count among the most popular in the city. But the tastiest museum in Cologne by far is the Chocolate Museum! Here you’ll learn all about the history of chocolate and you can even try the chocolate fountain. Besides the many indoor art installations across Cologne, the Rhine city is also known for its abundance of street art. Wander over to the Ehrenfeld borough, where you can find several murals from renowned artists.

From Kölsch beer to a Halve Hahn rye roll with cheese: Cologne really hits the spot

Foodies can also look forward to the city’s culinary delights. Head to Cologne’s Südstadt for the best Lebanese falafel, where there are also dozens of cosy tapas bars. Typical Cologne specialties include the Halve Hahn rye roll with cheese, Himmel und Ääd mashed potato and apple sauce, Adenauerbrot bread and the Rheinischer Sauerbraten – a marinated pot roast. All of which are washed down, of course, with a glass of Kölsch. As you can see, there’s something for every taste in beautiful Cologne. And for anyone looking for an easy way to rent an apartment in Cologne, there’s Placed. Cheers!
