Currently the capital of the area, they are in competition with the nearby Cologne, on the same river, holders of the cathedral and previously more important than they.

Also good shopping on the Konigsallee. There is a flea market on the river side of the street as well. With art and books and of course beer and sausages šŸ™‚
