Our Neumarkt hotel in Cologne is located right beside the city’s former cattle market, which was founded in 1076. It’s not so much the cows, horses and chickens that get shoppers' hearts racing these days – but rather the fashion boutiques and department stores. The Schildergasse, Cologne’s most popular shopping street, is right on the doorstep of our design hotel in Cologne. The street will take you to the heart of the city centre in a matter of minutes, where you can explore the historical town hall, the Museum of Applied Arts, the Hohenzollernbrücke bridge or the Rhine – or perhaps one of the many Kölsch breweries, which offer the ideal refreshment to complement your day in the city. Medieval alleyways lead you from our affordable hotel to the defining symbol of the city: the Cologne Cathedral.
The interior of our Cologne-Neumarkt hotel is also inspired by the city’s most imposing landmark, which is one of Germany’s most popular visitor attractions and a UNESCO World Heritage Site. Its influence is expressed in the form of colourful glass mosaics in the bar area, which are reminiscent of the artistic windows of the cathedral, and continues with transparent room dividers inspired by the cathedral’s Gothic arches. Wall installations transport you straight into the heart of the nave, while slate and marble details echo the basic stone structure of the popular landmark that has withstood centuries. Our Motel One Cologne-Neumarkt pays loving tribute to Cologne’s flagship monument – and is (almost) as impressive as the original!
