Hi Everyone, I can't find information on the web on how to get from Amsterdam Airport to Cologne. I am arriving at 7:05a and need to be in Cologne by 13:00
so it has to be a nonstop. The KLM flight leaves at 8:30a. Is this enough time?

Anyone else besides KLM do it? I'm finding prices of $512 for a RT. Yikes, for a one hour flight!! Any cheap way to get a KLM ticket like a consolidator or travel company you can share?

I would train but information is confusing. Is there a DIRECT train to Cologne without changing or going into Amsterdam Central? I have been on but it wasn't helpful about options.

And lastly how much time do I need between my flight arrival and the train?
Any information or websites will be VERY GREATLY APPRECIATED!!

DB timetable
From: Schiphol
To: Cologne

No direct trains. There is a connection departing at 08:30 requiring a number of changes.
And a pretty good connection departing at 10:14 with only one change of trains in Utrecht. Click on '>' to see the details for a connection.

I don't think any other airline than KLM serves this connection as it is too short. I always thought there was a direct ICE train connection between Schiphol airport and Cologne Hbf -- checked on and couldn't find any direct link either. In theory, there would be enough time to go by train, you'd definitely make a big save.

The answers to your similar post in the Amsterdam forum do cover all your options.

Germanwings no longer seem to fly this route, as far as I can tell, so KLM is your only choice of airline. I do not think consolidators/travel agents in Europe offer cheaper fares than you can find online.

If there had been a direct train from Schipol airport then it would have shown up on, which is reliable and carries up-to-date information.

I would allow at least an hour after landing to catch a train. With no hold baggage you might get out more quickly.

Changing trains should not be a problem, although the 08:30 train from the airport (arriving 12:35) does involve several changes. You will find platform information on to make changing easier, and you will also find that station staff speak at least some English (many speak excellent English).


by RhineRoll

in case your plane is early and you are zapping through customs and baggage reclaim, there also is a 7:44 train with only 1 change in Utrecht, arriving in Cologne at 10:45. Possible, if everything goes fine, but not safe.

For environmental reasons alone, I'd go for the 10:14 train and tell your folks in Cologne you will be 15 minutes late. The insane flight ticket rate of $ 512 reflects the complete stupidity of offering a flight route for this perhaps 250 km distance. KLM probaly need to do it because Schiphol is their hub and they are trying to attract customers for their intercontinental routes. Plane will likely be a city-hopper bombardier q300 or even smaller aircraft. .

Have you considered renting a car and driving?
I have done this in the past and the journey was not too difficult - if you know where in Cologne you are going, of course.
Maybe one of the people you are meeting could drive to the nearest service area on the autobahn and guide you in.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Chocolate museum

by milugares

The building by the Rhine river houses the chocolate museum: you can learn about the cocoa plant , see tropical trees in the greenhouse, look how the machines make and package chocolates, taste them...

Just some 10-15 minutes walking from the cathedral, along the nice river promenade. The liquid chocolate fountain - biscuit included ;-)
and the tropical trees greenhouse



Müngersdorfer Stadion

by vichatherly

The old home of 1. FC Köln.

They were quite literally knocking down this old stadium at the time of our visit. we should have been wearing hard hats at least as we sneaked in an open door.

It was built in 1923 with a recent capacity of 42,000.

Now rebuilt and renamed the RheinEnergie Stadion in time for the FIFA World Cup 2006.

The Subway

by fairy_dust

I was in Cologne for World Youth Day, and I don't think the organizers thought about the fact that there is such thing as an overcrowed subway train. Most of the time in the subway, we were stuffed in like sardines and it was a struggle to enter and exit the train. But that was just during WYD, I've been told that normally, it's not that busy at all.

The subway lines themselves are easy to figure out, and I think it's a good mode of public transportation.

Cologne Cathedral

by Madelyn313

One cannot help but be moved to tears when listening to an organ concert within the Dom's stained glass walls of God. I walked into the Cathedral and didn't speak for about four minutes I was so overwhelemed at the Gothic architecture...for the duration of the concert I felt as though I was in heaven on earth. After drying up I decided to take a walk around the santuary to take a few pictures then up the tower for a loooooong walk. One cannot absorb everything in one visit of the Dom; the treasury, tomb monuments, Bavarian windows and the--600 step plus-- winding walk up the tower takes up enough energy for one day alone. It is a multifunctional place really. You can visit one day and walk the perimeter of the church and up the tower for the sake of vanity. You can come and make a joyful sound when seeking reconciliation and peace for the sake of the Divine. Or you can just come take a tour to enjoy its aesthetic beauty...I highly recommend daily visits.
