Cologne Design Guide

Cologne Design Guide

Cologne is the cultural hub of Germany’s north-west. It suffered during Second World War bombings – hence there is a fair bit of concrete around – but the modern, urban side of the city is every bit as interesting as the twee, time warp that is the old town. With plenty of contemporary art and a well-regarded food scene, there is plenty to keep visitors busy.  In order to make your experience even more excited during IMM Cologne 2020, My Design Agenda decided to show you a luxury Cologne Design Guide with the best hotels to stay, the best restaurants to eat and what to do.
