The sound of Co­logne


Co­logne sounds good, even though it may not look like that every­where. The first glance goes to the Dome, but what about the second? It is ad­vis­able to keep your ears open, be­cause the dome city is, without a doubt, the un­der­dog among the Ger­man mu­sic cit­ies. At the be­gin­ning there was Can, who was in­spired by Karl­heinz Stock­hausen?s ?Köl­ner Klassen für Neue Mu­sik?.

Many oth­er im­port­ant mu­sic­al his­tor­ies star­ted here. You will learn how and where everything went from there in a di­git­al tour through the pop mu­sic­al Co­logne. Simply choose a Walk that will lead you to the care­fully se­lec­ted spots in Co­logne. If you?d rather just browse around, se­lect the prox­im­ity search. Read about everything in de­tail from A as in A-Mu­sik to Z as in Zeltinger Band and what happened in the city in the past dec­ades with re­gards to rock and pop­music.
