Anyone in search of a haven to gamers from around the world would have to look no further than Cologne, Germany, which hosts the annual GamesCom. The Cologne Exhibition Centre is the fourth largest convention centre in the world, with over 284,000 square metres of combined halls and exhibition space. Visitors can sleep easy knowing that there are many Cologne hotels within a short distance, and the venue covers most amenities, including food, drink and Wi-Fi.
Cologne's hotels often offer the best restaurants, but visitors can also wander the city in search of simpler fare. The Excelsior Hotel Ernst, the Ibis Hotel Koln and the Gunnewig Hotel each have their own restaurants. The Kult, Poisson, Zur Tant and Le Moissonier are also quite popular.
Cologne's bustling streets are full of shops, and locals from the surrounding countryside often visit for a shopping trip and an overnight stay in one of Cologne's hotels. The Schildergasse, Hohe Strabe, Ehrenstrabe and Mittenstrabe are the most popular shopping streets, and offer trendy boutiques, designer shopping and arcades.
Cologne Cathedral is awe-inspring and breathtaking in equal measure. It is the first thing you see after leaving the railway station and will take a few minutes to comprehend its size.. The Museum Ludwig, Fragrance Museum and Romano-Germanic Museum are also worth visiting. Cologne features many other attractions, ranging from a ride on a cable car to a visit to the Great St. Martin Church, or any of the other churches and cathedrals in the city.
While known as a cathedral city, Cologne could also be known as a football city. The RheinEnergie Stadium, Lanxess Arena and the Kolner Sports Station host most of the games from the 1. F.C. Cologne, F.C. Viktoria Koln 1904 and SC Fortuna Koln football clubs.
