About us

Find out more about the Cologne Tourist Board

The Cologne Tourist Board is the city of Cologne’s destination management organisation, making it the first port of call for international travel and event planners, business travellers and leisure visitors. It brings together and represents the interests of its internal stakeholders while promoting Cologne as a multifaceted travel and congress destination. Besides strengthening the city’s image, the Cologne Tourist Board serves to position Cologne and the surrounding region as an attractive tourism destination and acclaimed MICE location for the domestic and international market, in turn delivering benefits to the local economy.


The Cologne Tourist Board’s Cologne Convention Bureau (CCB) is responsible for managing conferencing activities. The CCB has an extensive track record in offering event planners independent advice plus access to a broad network of partners, a service that is free of charge. It provides individual, personal support for planning events of any kind, from conferences and congresses to meetings and incentive events.
