Situated in the Federal State of North Rhine-Westphalia, Cologne is Germany's fourth-largest city. It is located in the heart of Germany's industrial region, but is also less than 80 km away from the Belgian border. It pictoresquely sprawls upon both banks of the Rhine and is home to a famous cathedral, the Kölner Dom. A textbook example of monumental Gothic architecture, the Dom is Germany's most visited touristic landmark, attracting daily some 20,000 visitors.
