This guide came to life first in 2014 through the hands of our team of three local and international design students. We realized how most of the time incoming students had no prior tips and information on what life had to offer in Cologne besides studying and set out to change this frustrating situation. Gathering information and tips we hope to share a unique perspective on the life of a city we got to experience and cherish. 

Since then our team has collected endless recommendations and tips from international and national students, travellers as well as locals to show you Cologne from a different angle. With all this unique information the guide offers a great companion not only for people that didn't know the city before but also all those who want to discover new places and activities.

Nominated for the "German Design Award 2016" the guide was not only received great by the design scene but also by all of those who got their hands on it. Because of the high demand we are proud to now give you an updated, extended and revised second edition of the "Not just another guide to Cologne". Besides the guide there are also fun, colorful prints and postcard sets for sale that make a great gift and decoration for your home and loved ones.
