Industrial buildings & lofts in Cologne

Conferences within industrial charme

As the biggest city on the Rhine, Cologne has always been a coveted location for industry. Many companies from a variety of sectors, such as car manufacturing (Ford) and mechanical engineering (Deutzer Motorenwerke), have chosen Cologne as their production locations and are still delivering their products to customers all over the world. 

As an event organizer, you too can benefit from this aspect of our city, because many former production facilities are popular convention venues today. They create a very special atmosphere, thanks to their fascinating industrial flair.

The Palladium in Köln-Mülheim is a good example. It’s a former machine production hall that today can accommodate events with up to 4,000 guests. 

Another excellent choice is the Halle Tor 2 – A convention and event venue that combines the rugged charm of its industrial past with state-of-the-art convention technology. If you’d like to combine an industrial setting with a historic harbour atmosphere, the Harbour.Club event locations of the New Yorker Cologne Hotel would be just right for you.  

You can find these venues and many more in our overview.
