Cologne to launch a corporate blog at ITB Berlin

Kölner Altstadt im Herbst

Cologne is a thriving hub of cultural activity. The city has become a creative hotspot due to its highly active and flourishing bohemian culture. This is reflected by a wide range of design, music, art, fashion and festivals in the city. In 2016/17, KölnTourismus will be highlighting this modern urban lifestyle with a focus on #urbanCGN – cologne urban lifestyle, as a key tourism attraction. #urbanCGN covers events, trends, places, projects and the people behind them. Full details can be found by visiting the corporate blog at, which has been launched to coincide with ITB Berlin. Additional information is also available in the special sections at
