Experience the House of 4711
Just a few minutes’ walk from Cologne Cathedral stands the House of 4711, the place where we have been creating unique and world-famous colognes since 1792.

In our flagship store, you can explore the richly faceted variety of the brand and have the opportunity to experience the history of the House of Fragrances and its iconic ORIGINAL EAU DE COLOGNE.

We look forward to your visit. Yours 4711 - team
Smelling History

Guided historic tours

Where did the number 4711 come from? What is the mythical story behind the secret formulation of the “aqua mirabilis”? These and many other questions are answered for you by our experts in the rooms of the House of Fragrances’ museum.

Discover the tradition-rich history of 4711 through precious and unique objects from the past of this Cologne-based fragrance manufacturer – a past spanning back over 225 years. The hand-crafted Gobelin tapestry, the hourly glockenspiel on the building’s southern façade, and a brief refreshment break at the ORIGINAL EAU DE COLOGNE fragrance fountain are a must for every Cologne aficionado.

Create your own Cologne
