Cologne is Germany’s forth largest city and the capital of German federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia. A major cultural centre for the Rhineland, Cologne hosts more than thirty museums and hundreds of galleries. Exhibitions range from local ancient Roman archaeological sites to contemporary graphics and sculpture. The Cologne Trade Fair hosts a number of trade shows such as Art Cologne, imm Cologne, Gamescom, and the Photokina.
The River Rhine cuts the city in two with the left bank of the river being home to the city’s centre of gravity, and features most of the city’s residential areas.
Like the whole of German, Cologne affords expats living there a high quality of life mixed with a wealthy, vibrant and cosmopolitan lifestyle. The Cologne standard of living is incredibly high due to the benefits of the city’s prosperous and stable economy. These benefits have resulted in a first-class education and health system, that is the envy of other European cities.
