glockengasse no. 4711 and the station hostel

4711 glockengasse

the home of the original eau de cologne, 4711 glockengasse. inside is a small museum showcasing its history and a fountain filled with the famous perfume. you could smell it from down the street. it smelled light and clean, like citrus and thyme.

my railroad centime imprinted with an image of the cologne cathedral, perfume bottles and soap of the original eau de cologne from glockengasse no. 4711, and two bottles of kolner domliqueur from the cathedral.
