Incidentally, the nickname among the people of Cologne is "Henkelmännchen", which results from their form or was derived.


The first cut of the spade, so the construction began on 31.07.1996 . Thousands of tons of concrete, parquet and plastic flooring were used from then on. The construction costs were at incredible 153 million euros! By the way, the responsible architect was Peter Böhm. At the opening, the arena had even another (third) name!

The production of this perfume brand has been around for a long time. It was probably first produced in 1799. Since then it is immensely popular. It is a unique mixture and recipe that is used for this perfume. Only later was the refreshing perfume called 4711 and as such a brand also world famous. Wilhelm Mülhens sold the perfume first in Cologne. To date, 4711 is produced and has expanded its range many times. 4711 is also called Original Eau de Cologne. This designation may officially carry the cologne. The brand is truly everyone's idea. It is a world brand.

The ball rotates very fast and looks like a globe that turns very fast and does not fall off your finger! Brilliant! And to that, the basketball player's big grin!
