One of the best-known addresses in Cologne is Glockengasse 4711, where the company Kölnisch Wasser began the campaign which was to end in world-wide popularity. In the original neo-gothic house, just opposite the Oper-house, there is still the 4711 perfumery which sells the original eau-de-cologne ('Echt Kölnisch Wasser'). The bells on the side of the house play tunes, among which is the Marseillaise - a reminder of the French influence present when eau-de-cologne began its climb towards success.
