Internships in Cologne, the fourth largest city in Germany

Cologne is situated on the banks of the Rhine River, in the south of the Rhine-Ruhr metropolitan area. It's the most important city of this region and the fourth largest city in Germany with more than 1,000,000 people living there. It's also important to take into consideration that thousands of tourists come to visit this beautiful city all year long!

Cologne is one of the most famous tourist cities in the country. The city is particularly famous for its splendid cathedral, which is classified as a UNESCO World Heritage site. It's impossible to walk around the city without admiring the remarkable architecture of Romanesque Basilicas. If you choose to do an internship in Cologne, don't miss the springtime Carnival, which is one of the biggest events of the year!

A training agreement is a document which outlines all the details of your internship which proves that the internship is as a part of your studies.
