The Germans consider Cologne a very fun and cheerful city. Locals are famous for their openness, tranquility and a keen sense of humor. And Cologne beer is called in the same way as the inhabitants of the city, - lsch. Cynics can say that these stereotypes are proposed by travel companies seeking to lure more tourists into the city.

And yet Cologne is really different from other cities in Germany. Patient locals spare no time to help non-German tourists. Offending them is quite difficult. If you get used to sitting in street cafes or pubs without a hurry, then it will be easy for you to communicate with the residents of Cologne. They will be happy to advise you on good bars, clubs and places of interest. People of all ages spend a lot of time on open terraces in front of cafes and restaurants in the summer and in cozy bars in the winter. Although alcohol is served in Cologne day and night, the atmosphere in the bars and on the streets remains friendly and warm, and not at all frightening.

Cologne is a true cultural center of Germany. There is a large university and music schools. Many residents of the city lead a bohemian lifestyle. They stay up late in cafes and bars, often go to theaters and art galleries. On weekends, when the sun is shining, the inhabitants of Cologne go to the parks to sunbathe and have a picnic. In the summer, you can see girls in bikinis on any patch of green grass, and no one is surprised at this. You should not pay attention to half-naked beauties, especially if they are accompanied by men.

The Germans brought recycling to the level of real art. All garbage containers in the city are divided into special compartments for paper, plastic and other garbage. Take care of yourself and do not throw garbage anywhere. Whatever you do, never leave trash after yourself - no one does it here.

Cologne's only drawback is the high cost of living. Accommodation, food and shopping here are quite expensive. Hotel rooms during holidays and various conferences are in great demand. Naturally, in such conditions, prices simply cannot be low. Local residents complain that prices for consumer goods have risen since the introduction of the euro. Although tourists from England still consider Germany a cheap country compared to their homeland, it seems very expensive to Americans.
