Cologne, one of the largest cities in Germany, is an important business centre and the capital of the German television industry. As well as its famous eau-de-cologne, renowned since the 16C, the city is known for its lively carnival which has a non-stop party atmosphere enjoyed by tourists and locals alike. The two black spires of the cathedral have become the symbols of the city.
