Every Cologne resident has more than their fair share of zest for life and partying spirit – it's in their DNA. After all, Cologne is more than just a city – it is a matter of the heart, an emotion and an unfalteringly positive state of mind. At the root of this outlook are carnival, kölsch beer and, of course, Cologne Cathedral.
What does Berlin have that other world cities don't? Well, first of all, there's the locals, whose rough yet friendly charm is all part of the Berlin experience.

There are cars you drive... and then there are cars you dream of. Stuttgart has both in abundance.

Everything’s close together in Düsseldorf. We are the only major German city that still has the word „dorf“ (village) in ist name – although it has long since become a global village. And that’s entirely in tune with the tolerant and cosmopolitan way of life that is cultivated everywhere in the city. This is why you’ll feel completely at home in Düsseldorf. The Rhinelanders quickly give you a sense of belonging. Take a seat in one of our famous brewery inns or sit for a while on the steps of the Rheintreppe (Rhine Terrace Steps). You’ll quickly discover that people love to chat.
Schwerin has just short of 100,000 residents, making it Germany's smallest state capital.

A fitting landmark: light, airy, bright and welcoming – just like the city itself.
