Ok, I know that Eau de Cologne originated here, but this was really a tourist trap. If you want to take cologne home, they have it and there is some history here. Otherwise, it is just full of tourists shopping for cologne!

This place was so beautiful. People were very friendly and respectful. It was a good experience to see what the water of cologne is and how it smells. The fragrances were very good. I bought two.

You can't come to Cologne and not sample the original and best Eau de Cologne. I still hear the ad music ringing in my ear when I see the place and it's just as sweet smelling
