Cologne is is one of the oldest large German cities – its name dates back to Roman times. It is the largest city of Germany's federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia and world-famous for its cathedral and carnival. In addition to a vibrant media sector it’s a place where many different people and cultures meet. Fun Fact: Cologne’s airport has the only runway in Germany that is also an emergency landing site for NASA shuttles. The shuttles need these emergency runways because if they were to land in water, they would break apart.
The Thoughtworks office is located in Ehrenfeld. Locals love Ehrenfeld for its diverse nightlife, markets, artisan coffee places and international restaurants. Founded in 2015, it was the 3rd of five Thoughtworks offices in Germany. In 2018 we moved into a bigger space with a lovely roof terrace and a stunning view over the city.
