At the end of the 18th century, Germany’s industrial history was written in Cologne’s Mülheim district. The area where once approximately 33,000 people manufactured motors, machines and industrial equipment for the global concern Klöckner-Humboldt-Deutz, is today a creative hotspot where 250 artists, musicians, designers and craftspeople ply their trade. In the future, the location between the Mülheim Harbour, the Rheinboulevard and the Cologne Trade Fair venue will become even livelier and more diverse: by 2020, the CG Group will develop here a new quarter where students, young families, start-up entrepreneurs and young-at-heart pensioners will feel at home next to the long-established creative-types.
Apartments will vary in size and be built amongst a hostel, restaurants, regional and crafts markets, co-working spaces for start-ups, galleries, design shops and a multi-storey car park with urban gardening spaces. Where before the foundation of motorisation was laid, today the artists are the engine that powers the development on the bank of the Rhine.

With more than one million inhabitants, Cologne is the most populous city in the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia and the fourth largest city in Germany. Originally dubbed Oppidum Ubiorum, today's River Rhine metropolis was eventually elevated to city status by the Roman Empire under the name Colonia Claudia Ara Agrippinensium (CCAA).
Cologne maintains international significance as a major economic and cultural city and is considered one of the top locations for the global arts market. The stronghold of the carnival festival is also home to many media companies and organisations with numerous television and music producers. Above all, the Cologne Cathedral, the numerous internationally significant events and the city’s more than 2,000-year history as well as its cultural legacy all contribute to Cologne remaining one of the most important travel destinations in Europe.
The extensive long-distance passenger rail system as well as the Umschlagbahnhof Eifeltor (Eifeltor Trans-shipment Station), one of the largest container handling stations for combined freight transport, are evidence of the city’s significance as one of today’s major transport hubs. Four inland ports and the international airport complement the infrastructure.
