Cologne is in the far west of Germany, lying on the shores of the Rhine, one of Europe's longest rivers. Its celebrated cathedral is perhaps the city's major tourism claim to fame, and its architecture is worth a visit alone. However, Cologne event tickets will ensure that you experience a wide range of all the cultural activities, sport and entertainment you could possibly want. The annual Cologne Carnival is a very good reason for a visit – it's a massive street festival, one of the largest on the cContinent. And yes, this is the birthplace of Eau de Cologne, so if you're into perfumes, this is the perfect place to pay homage. StubHub is your ultimate guide to what's happening in this diverse and exciting city.
Opera, musicals and wackiness in Cologne
Cologne has always housed quite a few orchestras, while opera has been one of its proudest legacies. Make sure to include the Cologne Chamber Opera when you're buying Cologne event tickets. For something completely different, the wacky Blue Man Group Cologne has become a world-famous export. If you're into musicals, this is a great place in which to find yourself – the city has long been a premier performing destination for the biggest productions in the world, like The Bodyguard, or, as it's known locally Bodyguard Das Musical. The city has a proud sporting history as well, primarily due to its professional football team, 1. FC Köln.
Cologne, city of cathedrals and carnivals
You can also easily keep up with international touring bands when you're in Cologne, as the world's biggest stars have always played the city.
