Attracted by its architecture and friendliness, tourists flock to the city, which is situated on the banks of the River Rhine just 20 kilometres away from former capital Bonn, also home to great apartments through Wimdu. This popularity however does mean the Cologne’s apartments and bed and breakfasts are in high demand, but they, unlike the local hotel industry, have remained affordable. The Karneval festival which occurs, every February is Cologne’s biggest cultural event. It involves an elaborate parade and performance of great religious and cultural significance in the area. Those interested in Cologne apartments might also want to check out Wimdu’s accommodation in Brussels, just 3 hours away on the train, as these cities are often visited consecutively by travelers engaging in a pan-Europe trip. If you’re around during the summer, consider renting an apartment during the week of Cologne Gay Pride. Festivities are just one of the attractions for visitors to Cologne, the City is also home to the architecturally famous Cologne Cathedral. This massive Roman Catholic Church began under construction in the 13th century and when it was completed in 1880 it was the tallest building in the world before being over taken by the Washington monument.
