Cologne is perfect for students:
Cologne is a famous student city with a cosmopolitan and multicultural atmosphere. “Colonia Claudia Agrippinensum” was found by the romans and can look back on a 2000 year old history of culture and architecture. The more or less one million inhabitants from 180 nations form a unique and welcoming city, which is easy to get to know, feel comfortable in and get around, especially with a bike.
Cologne offers all advantages of a big city – culture, entertainment, good public transport, international shops and facilities, history and heritage but you’ll never feel lost, because it has retained its clarity, a lot of small nice cafes, pubs and green parks to relax.
With 13 state and private Colleges and Universities, Cologne is with about 60 000 students one of the biggest student cities in Germany. The University of Cologne is imbedded in a nice and safe neighborhood, not far away from the city centre.
