Cologne Rings and Belgian Quarter
A documentary about the Cologne street area Koelner Ringe and the city area Belgisches Viertel in the years 1993 and 1997.
Rudolfplatz, Hohenzollernring, Friesenplatz, Kaiser-Wilhelm-Ring and the Belgian Quarter slowly developed into a lively centre of the city again after the completion of the underground railway in 1987 and the renewal of the Kölner Ringe in 1989. But unlike the 60s and 70s, when the area was still considered the Chicago of the Rhine, with its many bars, nightclubs, cinemas and an active demimonde, the street scene has transformed into the modern scene of the 90s.
