Cologne's heart beats green

Centrally located in one of the most highly populated regions of Europe, Cologne is the perfect place to hold the leading global trade fair. An excellent infrastructure and optimal accessibility are what make the city and its fair ground popular. What's more, Cologne is a melting pot for art and culture, for commerce and joie de vivre.

However, Cologne is not only a metropolis with impressive buildings, it is also a green city. With the Rheinpark located in the direct vicinity of the trade fair and the green belt, which encircles the city and its centre, Cologne boasts a system of green areas that is unparalleled. The city is as multifaceted as it is fascinating – and, even beyond the fair, always worth visiting. Welcome to Cologne!
