That's true but understandable. A Kölner has to travel only a few miles outside of his town to be forced to speak German in order to be understood, a Bavarian can travel for hours and still be in his dialect region.

Or it is the mentality. Köln is one of the most welconing German towns for foreigners. Must be the high percentage of non-German blood in their veins.
