  • Picturesque shop within a beautiful building located in the historic centre and close to the Cathedral. Ideal for purchase which could be the most typical souvenirs of the city, water of Cologne.

  • We were with a larger group (27 persons) at 4711 Glockengasse in Cologne and had booked a fragrance seminar. This took place in the upper floor of the 4711 House into a Studio and it does not have sufficient seating and workstations for each participant. The teacher was a kölsches original and with heart and soul of the matter. After a short introduction on history, location, etc. regarding 4711 were the various components of a perfume such as bergamot, lemon, sweet orange, neroli u.v.m., which stood on all tables in Brown Gäsern discovered, i.e. his sniffs with the help of test strips. After that, each participant from the many ingredients could put together his own perfume by means of test strips and then mix in a small bottle itself. That is, at the end, everyone went home with his own "perfume" in addition to certificate of participation and fun in the creation of the perfume. A successful and very instructive event.

  • A formula that conquered the world. A brand that was born in function of a census by the Napoleonic troops and now around the world. The store is very pretty and at the entrance there is a fountain with water, that surrounds us with that wonderful aroma. New products show that the mark is renewed, but maintains the tradition. What we can see on the top floor of the store where there is a small museum with bottles and paintings that show the story that began in 1792 and that continues today.
