Today the Belgian quarter is one of Colognes hotspots for fashion and design, bars and clubs as well as street art and (art) galleries. The development of the former 19th century residential area to the place to be of today has undergone various processes of change. These can be witnessed in manifold facades of the quarter’s urban image: Corner shops, neon ads and urban art, the architecture of the buildings and the city tell the tales of one of Colognes most unique areas. They visualize how international design and style are absorbed and adopted by the local scene. The walking tour will lead us through one of the most diverse urban landscapes of Cologne and introduce you to the ongoing trends in all variations.
