One of Germany's larger cities, Cologne is considered the cultural centre of the Rhineland. With a huge variety of museums and hundreds of galleries, the city is very proud of its art heritage. Cologne is world renowned for being the home of the Cologne Trade Fair and the magnificent Cologne Cathedral. A marvel of Gothic architecture (and a World Heritage Site), Cologne Cathedral is the seat of the Catholic Archbishop and is the Shrine of the Three Kings, as it's purported to hold Relics of the Magi.
