It's hard to believe it, but Mediapark, the heart of Cologne's media industry, was once a wasteland, a vacant space better suited to shooting a scene for "Mad Max" than for hosting the cream of the crop of German industry, as it does today. Designed by Canadian architect Eberhard Zeidler, Mediapark is like a small solar system, with Cologne Tower, or KölnTurm, as its sun; other buildings are uniquely arranged circularly around it. A number of well-known companies are based there: EMI Music Germany, 1LIVE, and Radio Köln, amongst others.
- Grab a pair of binoculars, and study Mediapark's heart, the KölnTurm; pictures of the Cologne Cathedral and skyline of the major city's old town were applied to the building's windows, and can be seen at different times of the day, depending on how sunlight strikes them.
- For a truly amazing view of Mediapark, and Cologne as a whole, get to KölnTurm's observation deck on the 30th floor.
- Grab a cup of coffee at Osman 30 on KölnTurm's 30th floor, and get a seat by the window, or a spot at the terrace; the view is breathtaking.
Mediapark is located in the Neustadt-Nord area of Cologne, Germany. The fastest and most convenient way of getting to the suburb is by the Cologne Stadtbahn, an easy and affordable light rail system that connects this major city with several others. This is operated by KVB, and the Christophstraße/Mediapark U-Bahn station is the place to exit. Another option is to use buses, with the closest station located at Breslauer Platz on the north side of the Hauptbahnhof. One can also use a private car or a taxi to get around more conveniently.
