Royal Destinations: Cologne (Germany) and its Eau De Cologne

Eau De Cologne

A product with a huge historical importance is Eau De Cologne or in German:
Köllnisch Wasser.
I don't like the smell very much (it's a bit too strong for me) but it gives you certainly
a feeling of cleanliness and freshness.

4711 Eau De Cologne
The most famous Eau De Cologne is 4711.
The company which sold the Eau De Cologne was located at the Glockengasse 
No 4711 in Cologne.

Cologne has a great historical importance due to his location at 
both sides of the Rhine River.
It is German's fourth largest city after Berlin, Hamburg and Munich.

But what about a Royal Destination....?

Archbishop of Cologne was one of the 7 prince-electors.

Cologne is definitly recommended to visit and not only during the 
Carnival or Christmas Holidays, due to its rich culture and history.
