Cologne was established by the Romans in the 1st century AD. The city was capital of the Germania province in the Roman Empire, until its occupation by the Franks in 462. During Middle Ages, it was among the continent's largest and most important cities. During WWII, Koln was one of the most severely bombed cities in Germany. The allies' bombing raids reduced the population by 95%, and destroyed almost the entire infrastructure.

In early-November 2018, PitPoint LNG BV (Holland-based company founded in 2016, subsidiary of Primagaz Nederland BV) was granted permit to build shore-to-ship LNG bunkering station for supplying LNG-powered inland vessels with liquefied natural gas. Construction works started in 2018, with scheduled completion in 2019-Q2.
