Harald Schmidt comes from near Stuttgart, but has lived in Cologne for decades. There are surprising reasons for this.

Harald Schmidt (66) admires the saleswomen in the bakeries in Cologne Central Station because they are always in a good mood. “Cologne Central Station at half past six in the morning: the saleswomen are in a great mood,” said the actor, satirist and former late-night talk show host to the German Press Agency. And that despite the fact that they sometimes have to work in a draft.

Schmidt is convinced: “Moaning only occurs in the midfield. The people who storm onto the ICE in tight pants, with brown shoes, a blue suit, because they think they’re Italian. They’re in a bad mood. But these saleswomen…! They’re in a bad mood – you don’t need to go to Italy anymore! Where are the desperate people? Not there.”

Overall, what he likes about his adopted home of Cologne is that it is very relaxed there, says Schmidt. “In Cologne, you can move around completely relaxed as a TV person – there is no excitement at all – because there are so many people here.”

His “Harald Schmidt Show” (1995 to 2014) could not have been made in any other German city, for two reasons: firstly because of the uniquely large catchment area in the Rhine-Ruhr region and secondly because of the mentality. “General willingness to entertain. The carnival gene.” Conclusion: “I really like living in Cologne.”
