Hi, my name is Joern Wuennenberg and I´m a graphic designer from Cologne, Germany. So it´s pretty natural to put the striking Cathedral of Cologne onto the Victorinox. Built from 1248 to 1880 and 157 m/ 515 ft tall this gothic monument is not only the heart of the city but Germany´s most visited landmark with an average of 20,000 people a day. Since 1996 it´s an UNESCO world heritage site and according to a german poll the most beloved building in Germany.
