A symbol of the modern part of Cologne are the "Kranhäuser", which are located at the waterside of the river Rhine. The shape of the three Kranhäuser, an upside-down "L", is reminiscent of the traditional habor cranes, which were used to load cargo off of and on to ships.

In Cologne exists more than thirty museums and hundreds of galleries.

Another famous feature of Cologne is carnival or the so-called "fifth season of the year", which begins on November 11th at 11:11 a.m. However, the real "crazy days" do not start before the so-called Weiberfastnacht (Shrove Thursday), the Thursday before Rosenmontag (Carnival Monday). The "crazy days" of Carnival are celebrated in Cologne with parties on the streets, in public squares and in pubs. Closing times for pubs and bars are suspended for the duration of the festival.
