Gürzenich Köln - historic, prestigious event centre in the heart of Cologne.
Are you looking for a historic and stylish ambience for your event?
Then the Gürzenich Köln is just right for you. The Gürzenich - "Cologne's parlour" - with its late Gothic façade was built in 1447 and completely renovated in 1997. The interior was designed in the style of the 1950s, combining historical architectural styles while keeping up with the times. Today, the imposing building in the heart of the city serves as a prestigious event centre for national and international congresses, conferences, concerts, balls and upscale social events.
The Gürzenich can accommodate up to 3,000 people in six characteristic halls and conference rooms of different sizes as well as two spacious foyers for congresses, conferences, concerts and social events.

Modern event technology and professional catering will make your event an all-round success for you and your guests.
The Gürzenich Köln is centrally located in Cologne's old town and is very easy to reach by public transport as well as by car.
