What is the meaning of Cologne?

by lifeTripper

In some middle-east countries, the word "Cologne"
is using for some lemon-aromated alcohol-water mixture
parfume..

Anything related to the town Cologne?

Re: What is the meaning of Cologne?

by Turtleshell

Yes, 4711. ;-)

But in this case, Cologne simply means "colony" and dates back to those times when the Roman Empire had occupied half of Europe.

Re: What is the meaning of Cologne?

I'm not sure what your question is but here's an answer to one possibility.
Eau de Cologne, which was originally a mild bergamot based perfume (and by the way, bergamot grows almost exclusively in the Italian region of Calabria), was formulated by a pharmacist from the city of Cologne.

Re: What is the meaning of Cologne?

by abalada

In Roman times the official name of Cologne was "Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium" (CCAA). In French and English the short from colonia (Latin for colony) became later to Cologne. E.g. in Italian and Spanish it's still Colonia. In German it's Köln. In Dutch Keulen. In Czech Kolín.
As Cologne was for centuries one of the biggest cities in Europe, it has it's own name in many languages.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Deutz

by Kathrin_E

The suburb of Deutz, once a separate town, is situated on the opposite bank of the Rhine. Cologners call Deutz the “schäl Sick”, the “crooked side”, with an undertone of contempt. Deutz has always been a poor quarter, compared to the rich imperial city of Cologne.

Deutz has its own train station which is 2 minutes by S-Bahn from the central station – so if you have a train connection for example Frankfurt that only goes to Deutz, no worries.

Deutz is also the location of the fairgrounds where several big fairs take place, for example the Art Cologne. The fairground tower (Messeturm), built in 1927 and rebuilt after the war, is a landmark on the Deutz river bank. The promenade along the Deutz river bank offers the best panoramic view of cathedral and old town. From Dom and train station, cross the Rhine via Hohenzollernbrücke; there is a separate foot and bike lane along the train bridge.

Windeck

by Sjalen

Windeck is a municipality in the hills east of Cologne and it consists of the town Schladern and several smaller villages, often along the river Sieg and with great hiking possibilities as well as canoeing. The nicest village I have been in so far is Dattenfeld which is known for this lovely old Romanesque St Laurentius Church, with a history to at least the 13th century although much of it today is from the 19th century too. There are also castle ruins on several hills and nice countryside inns below them. You get here by regional train in about an hour since the railway meanders its way along the river. A great place to escape the crowds but only local Cologne-Bonn people seem to know this.

A million bicycles in Cologne

by Nemorino

1. Cycling in Cologne
2. Cycling by the river

The Cologne city government estimates, on its website, that there are at least a million bicycles in Cologne,"as far as they can even be registered in the statistics".

They say that "bicycle riding in Cologne is totally the trend" and that "the bicycle has already re-conquered an important place" in the street traffic of the city.

The Cologne chapter of the General German Bicycle Club (ADFC) is less euphoric.

"Bicycle riding could be even more beautiful," they write, "if cyclists were at least accepted as equal partners in city traffic. But many traffic planners and politicians still conduct a one-sided promotion of the automobile. They often have too little comprehension of the needs of un-motorized traffic participants."

Maredo

by kentishgirl

Kölner Dom - Cologne Cathedral

by JanPeter74

Even after having seen my share of cathedrals in cities all over Europe, The Kölner Dom is quite something. What makes this cathedral so impressive are the two lean, pointed and extremely tall towers of the building, making the building very distinctive.

When entering the cathedral you can choose to climb one of the towers after paying an entrance fee. But be prepared, it is quite a climb and the steps are narrow. Moreover, the second part of the climb is a steel, open spiral staircase, which can be a bit challenging for people who have a problem with heights. However, once you have reached the top you have a magnificent view of the city and the river Rhine (Rhein).

The railway bridge on the righthand side of the pictures leads straight into the central railway station, next to the Dom.
