科隆

科隆:乐享生活之城

科隆 (Köln),这座城市天生饱含乐享生活和欢庆节日的基因。 如果您到科隆来仅仅走马观花般到此一游,不足以感受到科隆城的魅力。实际上,笼罩着科隆的独特氛围和科隆人在这种氛围下积极的生活态度,更值得您细细品味。 您需要品味的头三样特产,当数科隆狂欢节 (Karneval)、科隆啤酒 (Kölsch) 以及举世闻名的科隆大教堂 (Kölner Dom)。

Kölle alaaf(意为“科隆万岁”)- 当人们高喊着这样的口号冲向大街时,也就意味着这座城市已经进入狂欢节的“紧急状态”。 癫狂、丧失理智……这些字眼已经完全不足以描述这个在圣灰星期三前一周举行的盛大节日。 每年 11 月 11 日 11 时 11 分,科隆狂欢节如期而至,与其他类似活动一样,狂欢节一直持续到圣灰星期三。 要说起科隆狂欢节与其他狂欢节的共同之处,恐怕也就只有这一点了,当狂欢节的“魔爪”在最后一个星期伸向城市的大街小巷之时,您就会明白,科隆狂欢节绝对是只属于这个城市的珍宝。 想要寻求科隆独特的生活乐趣?老集市市场 (Alter Markt) 和霍依市场 (Heumarkt) 附近传统而舒适的小酒馆以及遍布整个老城区的大型啤酒屋是您的首选 - 不论您在哪个季节来到这座城市。 在这里,科隆啤酒香飘四方,您只有在莱茵河畔的科隆才喝得到这种传统饮料。每个人都亲切友好笑意盈盈,就仿佛这座城市每天都是狂欢节。 每种科隆啤酒都有自己独特的味道,当然也出自不同的啤酒坊。 这里的酒保被称为“Köbes”,用“热情”二字尚不足以形容他们的工作态度,在他们看来,在热情之外还需要有一定程度的粗野,才称得上一名真正意义上的酒保。 而唯一对科隆人的生活情趣构成威胁的,是沿莱茵河顺流而下、距离科隆 30 公里的杜塞尔多夫 (Düsseldorf),在那座细致而年轻的城市,处处流淌着不同的情调。

周末的时候,科隆当地居民和游客、青年人和大学生们纷纷聚拢在不计其数的迪厅、俱乐部、酒吧、餐厅和会馆中,其中大学校园拉丁区 (Kwartier Latäng)、弗里森区 (Friesenviertel)、比利时区 (Belgisches Viertel)、南城 (Südstadt) 和新增的传统工业区爱伦菲尔德区 (Ehrenfeld) 最受欢迎。 对一个这样规模的城市来说,您经常会碰到一些物美价廉的惊喜。 除了狂欢节、小酒馆和啤酒坊以外,科隆还有很多地方能让您感受到生活的美好。朝气蓬勃的艺术与音乐舞台“科隆圆顶音乐厅”(Musical Dome Köln) 即是见证之一,它拥有 1700 个座位,音响效果震撼人心并且久负盛名,是科隆最大的剧院;此外,您还可以加入克里斯托夫街头游行日 (Christopher Street Day)活动,这是德国规模最大的同性恋盛事。 而虽然积分榜上的排行不总是尽如人意,科隆第一足球俱乐部 (1. FC Köln) 的每次主场赛也还是会成为一次精彩的演出。

伟大的路德维希博物馆 (Museum Ludwig) 能够满足您对艺术的无限向往,这里收藏有毕加索 (Picasso)、沃霍尔 (Warhol)、利希滕施泰因 (Lichtenstein) 等大师的优秀作品。 除此之外,这里还有展示科隆 2000 年悠久历史的瓦尔拉夫·里夏茨博物馆 (Wallraff-Richartz-Museum),那里馆藏有从中世纪到 19 世纪的珍贵展品。而如果您对甜食情有独钟,那就去参观巧克力博物馆 (Schokoladenmuseum) 吧。 抑或您想在如此浓烈的科隆氛围中寻得一丝宁静?那么位于莱茵河右侧的莱茵公园 (Rheinpark) 是您的最佳选择。莱茵公园是科隆最大最美的公园之一,地处科隆人所谓的“假莱茵河畔”,即莱茵河右岸城区 - 乘坐缆车穿越莱茵河就可到达。 如果时间充裕,一定要到科隆三角 (KölnTriangle) 100 米高的观景台上俯瞰一下科隆老城和大教堂 (Dom) ,这可是科隆城最美的景色。 天气好的时候,甚至可以在那里眺望杜塞尔多夫,不过还是不要告诉您的科隆朋友为妙。

Christmas Markets in Cologne

A White Christmas in Cologne

My notions of winter in Europe have been shaped by Hollywood movies. I expected to watch snowflakes romantically descend upon short winter days, and the cosy glow of Christmas trees in makeshift homes (think boutique hotels) to keep me warm. What surprised me on my December trip to Germany was the camaraderie and sheer revelry at the country’s famous Christmas markets, compelling enough to brave the single digit temperatures and rejoice over a white winter! If the thought of Europe evokes images of quaint old churches in juxtaposition with hi-tech buildings, and old towns with cobbled streets and artistic cafes, a winter trip to Cologne only romanticizes those images further. Come December, chirpy little Christmas Markets pop up among the city’s most charming neighborhoods, and become the go-to place for the city’s locals. Colorful booths line the streets, selling traditional German and Christmas gifts, like the famous Räuchermännchen, a wooden toy that is an incense smoker in disguise. Food stalls serve up hash browns, frankfurters, crepes, and local delicacies. People gather around drinking glühwein, the famous mulled wine of Europe warmed with spices, chatting, warming up over some neighborhood gossip. Christmas music plays everywhere, and the night rings with the clinking of cups and prost. Such revelry! At the Christmas Market on the Alter Markt in Cologne, local craftsmen and women demonstrate their talents with wood crafts, crystal painting and glass glazing; it is fascinating to observe the precision and pride that goes behind each little piece of work, and meet men and women who have come to these markets since they were little boys and girls. But the icing on the cake in a festive Cologne is its main market, which glitters in the dramatic backdrop of the city’s oldest and most charming cathedral; truly a European Christmas!

Früh am Dom

Best brauhaus in Cologne!

If you are feeling thirsty after your tour of the stunning Cologne Cathedral, pop into the Fruh Brauhaus which is located right across from the Dom. For such a touristy location, it is surprisingly packed with locals which is refreshing. (Recent survey found that 70% of the clientele were from the city) The 'kolsch', the local beer served here is also very refreshing. Not too gassy so it goes down well, especially in the unique little 200ml glasses they serve the beer in. The food is good here, generous portions. Altogether a great place to relax in and have a few glasses of the awesome Kolsch.

You can spend hours and hours doing some shopping in Cologne or the cities close by. But too often, the cold and wet weather makes you feel more like curling up at home or in the hotel.

Köln Arkaden You can find 'Köln Arkaden' in Cologne Kalk. This is a very modern building with about 180 Shops. You can get there by tram or car although there are not that many parking spaces available.

Mexx Outlet Korschenbroich

Great indoor shopping Cologne - Mexx Outlet Korschenbroich

You can spend hours and hours doing some shopping in Cologne or the cities close by. But too often, the cold and wet weather makes you feel more like curling up at home or in the hotel. So if you are not up to running through the rain just to get some souvenirs oder shopping goods, Cologne (and North Rhine Westphalia) has some great indoor shopping malls to explore! Mexx Outlet Korschenbroich I love Outlet Shopping. There are not that many close to Cologne but one worth a visit is the 'Mexx Outlet' in Korschenbroich which is close to Neuss an not that well known. You can only go there by car and the drive lasts about 30 minutes from Cologne. Visiting this outlet is especially a tip for parents with young kids as you can get really good bargains (30-70% off) when you are looking for Baby clothes or kids outfits but they also have a good women and men section. It is never really crowded so you will always get a parking space. The Outlet looks and feels like a regular shop so there are no rummage tables around that make you feel uncomfortable and there are enough dressing rooms. There is even a small café in it with good coffee and cakes. Tipp: Visiting at the beginning of the week (Tuesday/Wednesday) and you'll have much more choices as they bring in new stuff every week. No special website available for this location. Opening Hours Mexx Outlet Monday to Friday 10 am - 7 pm Saturday 10 am - 6 pm Friedrich-Ebert-Straße 9 41352 Korschenbroich

The “Kölsche lifestyle” is catching – reason enough to come to Cologne! Die Wohngemeinschaft This place is unique as it is decorated like a real apartment, a flat share to be precise. Like in any shared apartment, the kitchen is the heart of it all – in this case this is the café and bar downstairs, where you will get coffee, pastries and snacks during the day.

Rhein Center Köln

Great indoor shopping Cologne - Rhein Center Köln

You can spend hours and hours doing some shopping in Cologne or the cities close by. But too often, the cold and wet weather makes you feel more like curling up at home or in the hotel. So if you are not up to running through the rain just to get some souvenirs oder shopping goods, Cologne (and North Rhine Westphalia) has some great indoor shopping malls to explore! Rhein Center Köln The Rhine Center Cologne is about 7 kilometers out of the city centre. You can easily get there by car or tram. As I live really close by the 'Rhein Center Köln' I am used now to its quite confusing parking garages and malls. But the centre was originally built in the early 70's. After the latest massive modernisation, which had to be based on the old structures, more and more great stores moved in. So arriving by car, you might get lost on your first visits. To avoid this, just remember the level you get into and the lift you descend of. That's it. I am quite a big fan of this shopping center although its general feeling is a bit oldschool. A huge hit for the center was probably to get the first Apple Store in Cologne in. You can also find Hollister, Tom Tailor, WE, WE Kids and several nice interiour shops there. There is a food mall on the ground floor - I recommend giving the flying Sushi a try! The only thing is: if you go there with kids, don't waste your time to look for the 'kiddieland'. There is no playground and there is no place to relax with children. Kiddieland is just a place several machines to throw money in to. To get there, you can easily take the car although parking is not free, except Saturday in the afternoon. Avoid the Saturdays before Christmas or be there really early. You can also take the tram Nr. 1 from the city, it takes about 30 minutes from the city to get here. Walking distance from the station to the center: 5 seconds. Opening Times Rhein Center: Mondays to Saturdays 10 am - 8 pm www.rhein-center-koeln.de

Centro Oberhausen

Great indoor shopping -Centro Oberhausen

You can spend hours and hours doing some shopping in Cologne or the cities close by. But too often, the cold and wet weather makes you feel more like curling up at home or in the hotel. So if you are not up to running through the rain just to get some souvenirs oder shopping goods, Cologne (and North Rhine Westphalia) has some great indoor shopping malls to explore! Centro Oberhausen - one of the biggest malls in Europe Where once has been the location of coal and steel industry, you can find now one of the biggest shopping centres in Europe. Opened in 1996 it might not have the real modern look anymore but it is still one of the most famous and best indoor shopping locations in North Rhine Westphalia. 90.000 m2 of salesfloor, more than 200 Shops, 1200 seats in the giant food court - you can definetley spend a whole day here without feeling that bad: the huge glass roof brings in a lot of daylight to lighten up the huge mall. You should find anything here you are looking for - or never thought you really 'needed' to buy. In the spaceous malls, there are not only just huge chains, but also very special and nice boutique stores like 'Liebeskind', a Berlin based label selling great bags, walletts or shoes for example. Of course, you can find also an Apple Store here, a Vans Store and if you love german soccer, there are two sports club fan shops: one from FC Bayern Munich, the other one form Borussia Dortmund. One of the things I noticed recently: if you are looking for shoes, it is worth it to visit the Centro as there are so many shoestores and labels selling them, it is really hard to resist. Getting to the Centro is quite easy. The easiest way to get there is by car. The highway is very close by and there are more than 14.000 parking spaces available - for free. But you can also take the bus or the tram. Opening Times Centro Oberhausen Monday - Wednesday 10 am - 8 pm Thursday 10 am - 9 pm Friday and Saturday 10 am - 8 pm www.centro.de

Cologne is a lively city on the river Rhine, smaller than Berlin but still a city not to be missed when in Germany. It offers sights such as the UNESCO World Heritage listed cathedral, a high concentration of museums and galleries, shopping streets, old town alleys and cafés and bars with a laid back flair. The “Kölsche lifestyle” is catching – reason enough to come to Cologne! Früh Am Dom No visit to Cologne is complete without a stop for a beer and a meal at a typical Brauhaus (brewery), where the waiters joke around and won’t stop bringing you small glasses of Kölsch, the local beer, until you place your beermat on top of your glass to signal “Enough“. The food is hefty and very down to earth, so expect no chichi or fine dining. The interior is simple: massive oak benches, wood panel walls and huge ceramic tiled stoves. You can have design and all that jazz somewhere else; this place is only about the beer and the huge piles of traditional food.
