So if you can't decide whether or not to live on the left or right side of the River Rhine that flows through Cologne, want to find the best international schools in the city, need help finding employment or just want to relax in the company of like-minded expats, then InterNations might be the place for you!

Start Your Expat Adventure in Cologne!

A vibrant and exciting city of just over a million people, Cologne is busy and energetic, yet retains a sense of small town charm. As the regional center for media and technology companies, expats can expect gainful employment opportunities here — especially for those who are willing to learn German or have experience in these industries. Expats have a wide array of choices when it comes to accommodation in Cologne, from young and trendy areas such as Neustadt (New Town) or Eigelsteinviertel in the Old Town, to quieter, more family friendly suburbs like Marienburg or Dunwald in the south of the city.

The International Community for Like-Minded Expats!

Moving to another country or city can be a stressful experience for even the most confident globe-hopping expat; adapting to the local culture, on top of all the other stresses associated with relocations, can swiftly leave any expat feeling depressed and homesick. Luckily InterNations is on hand, with a busy and welcoming community of international expats living and working in Cologne. Whether you have important questions to ask, want a little bit of chat with a fellow expat or are interested in one of the many activities, groups and events InterNations offers in the city, there is really something for everyone. From jazz nights, to wine tasting, hiking and even weekend break travel groups — no matter what your interest, there will always be expats in Cologne ready for you to meet and mingle with who share an interest in your favorite activities.
