Venues in the surroundings of Cologne

Historic charm, modern elegance and nature experiences for every occasion!

Cologne is a well-known major city – but it has much more to offer than that!

Cologne’s surroundings offer locations that fit for every event format – from historic mansions to futuristic conference centres. If you want to meet in a castle or historic building surrounded by countryside, you don't have to look far. In the Bergisches Land area, in Leverkusen, the Rhine-Erft region or Cologne’s immediate surroundings, there are plenty of wonderful spots to hold your incentives.

Perhaps it’s the sedate historical feel of the Brasserie Schloss Paffendorf palace and the castle Schloss Arff that takes your fancy or the cool modern atmosphere of the Medio.Rhein.Erft. conference centre.  Whatever you chose – a place of tales and legends or a centre of tomorrow – you will always be close to nature and less than 20 minutes from Cologne.
