I love Cologne because of its welcoming vibe, easy-going life style and great beer!

Hallöchen everyone! My name is Katja and I am originally from a small city in Ukraine. I moved to Cologne for my studies and after, I realized that I just cannot leave this city anymore. As a result, I have been living here for 2.5 years already.

Overall, I lived all over Germany including Berlin and Hamburg, but Cologne is definitely my favourite one! If you ask me the best thing about the city I will not even know where to start: the river, the DOM, the vibes, the carnival, the art… But I can tell for sure that one of its best parts are super friendly, easy going and open people. Because of them you will never feel alone in this city.

I assimilated really good and now I don’t like Düsseldorf, I celebrate all 7 days of carnival (!) and as all people from Cologne, I share my love to a goat!

Every time I travel somewhere, I always take a free walking tour. This is the best way to get to know the city and its people! At one point I have decided that I can also share my love to Cologne via amusing stories and interesting facts. Moreover, before starting as a tour guide, I have spent hours listening about 1000 and 1 records about the city from my local friends.

I enjoy giving tours as it allows me to meet people from all over the world and discover their culture. So see you on my tours or/and at the local Brauhaus where I will tell you more about this beautiful city. Cheers!
