4711 continues to greet visitors to Cologne
Visitors to Cologne, traveling by rail, have been greeted by a large lighted installation of infamous brand 4711 Echt Kölnisch Wasser
for decades. Work has been done to renovate the installation and has now been completed (see below)
The 4711 cologne was created in 1792, and the brand was acquired
in late 2006 by Stolberg-based, Maurer & Wirtz.
