Public Transportation in Cologne

by Kokid08

Wow, the VRS site isn't too user friendly. Can anyone help me determine the cheapest form of city transportation? My wife and I will be staying there on September 7 - 11. Is the "Welcome Card" the best way to go or should we just buy the Daily Passes?
Thank You!

Re: Public Transportation in Cologne

Depends what you want to do and where you want to go in and oaround Cologne, but I would take the Welcome Card, as it is not really expensive and it offers also a lot in addition. You can buy it for the first 3 days, and then take the daily tickets for each individual day afterwards (depending on how far you want to go there are different types of the daily ticket, e.g. if you want to visit Bonn as well it will be a bit more expensive). Or, if you had enough of sightseeing during the first 3 days and you don't want to travel a lot at the end, you could take the "4er" tickets (4 single tickets), it makes sense to take if you for example ride only once per day...

Re: Public Transportation in Cologne

For Cologne you need tickets of the price level 2a (CityPlusTicket).
Single ticket is EUR 2,40.
4 single tickets are EUR 8,30.
Day ticket is EUR 6,90.
Mini group (2-5 persons) day ticket is EUR 10,10. This ticket is however on weekdays only valid past 9am.
Weekly ticket (calendar week) is EUR 19,50.

Thus as you time frame fits into one calendar week the weekly ticket would be the best choice in your case.

However if you plan trips from Cologne e.g. to Bonn (VRS price level 4) or Düsseldorf (VRS price level 5) it will be cheaper to buy mini group day tickets for the individual days according to your plans.

Are the day & group tickets good for all transportation? Buses & trams within the city. Thanks!

Yes. VRS tickets are zone-to-zone local public transport tickets. They cover all local public transport in the zones (= cities) they are valid for.
- regional trains (RB, RE)
- S-Bahn
- Stadtbahn (tram)
- buses

Travel Tips for Cologne

Overview of Colgone inner city

by chancay

On the photo you can see the river rhine crossing the city from south to north. The main city center is on the left side of the river. You can see the railways, close south to the main station is the cathedral and the pedestrial zones start here as well.

COMFY shoes.

by Steve-H

Hiking boots are recommended as parts of the town are cobbled and a lot of it is on the slope, up & down all day... didn't do my ill prepared feet any good. Fortunately there are plenty of places to rest, in Cologne they are called 'Bars' just like back home, conveinient eh? Recommended, but keep it to hand, Cologne is famous for pickpockets. There is a great camera shop next to the Dom (railway station side) lots of antique cameras.

SUMMERJAM: How to go.

by RudoElCojonudo

If you go by plane I recomend you to have a look in HLX, there are really good deals.
As soon as you arrive to the airpot ask for the train station, it´s placed in the 2nd terminal.
Take the train and go to the City Center. Here you´ll have to switch the train and go to Chroweiller.
Once here ask for the Summerjam, you´ll have to cross a huge park walking, it´s about 30 minutes walking, so take it easy.
I think that there are also special buses for the summerjam, but I didn´t use them...

Spaghetti Eis

by LizD about Café Rosenow

We visited this café when we found it sold Spaghetti Eis.
A friend told us it was her favourite ice cream so we thought we should try some.

First fresh cream is put in the bottom of a dish then vanilla ice cream, squeezed through a filter making it look like spaghetti is added. Finally the desert is topped off with raspberry sauce and nuts.

Very nice but very filling, you won’t eat again for hours afterwards!

Kölner Dom

by Sjalen

To me, Cologne's huge cathedral is vastly overrated despite its World Heritage status and yes, it is Germany's most visited tourist attraction. I know it is fascinating that it was started in medieval days (1248 to be precise) and not finished until the 19th century (the Prussians were furious with the Colonians as you can see in my local tip on tempers), but well...it just doesn't do it for me. However, even I find it is fascinating to see its huge silhouette all around the city as its size is impressive. It is otherwise in good need of a facade cleaning (which I think they are working on - cathedrals always being eternal workplaces) and its interior is very dark and gloomy compared to other old European cathedrals. Nice views from the top of the tower though and you can also visit the adjacent treasury for a small extra charge. All in all making this a definate must when you visit the city. My own favourite details are the wonderful handles which you can see in the travelogue below. In the square outside there is a model of the top spire which is massive so you can only just begin to understand the size of the whole building. In the fourth picture, you can see the cathedral art repair workshop just beneath the cathedral. Amazing to have that sort of thing in the middle of the town centre I think!
