Shortage of Hotel in Cologne?

The numbers of overnight stays at the Koelnmesse – the Cologne trade fair – speak for themselves.

With more than 2.4 million guest-nights in 2016, it is getting tight as far as hotel capacity is concerned. From the point of view of the Koelnmesse there is a lack of offers from the upper 4- and 5-star range. Especially in the center and close to the fair there are often not enough rooms available during trade fairs.

On the other hand the event calendar is filled. Numerous annual events with new visitor records fill the hotel beds of the Rhine metropolis. Starting with the imm cologne and ProSweets Cologne in January. From the Spoga horse to the international art market ART Cologne. In addition, new exhibition formats provide a strong inflow. Also, the gamescom, which takes place in August, attracts crowds of visitors. The world's largest trade fair and event highlight for interactive games and entertainment breaks all records.
