Cologne's Town Hall
Johann Maria Farina (1685 - 1766) made Cologne world-famous by naming his fragrance Eau de Cologne in honour of his hometown. The City of Cologne honoured its celebrated citizen by placing a statue of him on the Town Hall, where it can still be seen today. Today, the eighth generation of the Farina family still produces the original Eau de Cologne.
