The timeless tradition of Cologne
Conception of branding for oldest hippodrom in germany
The horses of Cologne have been proudly running races since 1898, and thanks to the Kölner Renn-Verein 1897 e.V., they are still doing so today. This oldest tradition of entertainment in Weidenpescher Park features a 55-hectare green area which is maintained by the original founding members of the racing club - a cross-section of the high society at the time. This elite group included bankers, early industrialists, and wealthy merchants who were passionate about horses and wanted to make sure that their legacy would live on in this centuries-old tradition. Today, it continues to be a popular destination and rebranding is part of marketing opportunities across Europe.
