TRAVEL FRO FRANKFORT AIRPORT TO COLOGNE

by botslady

WE WII BE ARRIVING AT THE FRANKFORT AIRPORT ON A SATURDAY MORNING AND NEED TO GET TO THE COLOGNE HYATT HOTEL. WHAT IS THE BEST WAY TO DO THIS. FOR OUR STAY AT THE HYATT WE WILL BE USING A FREE STAY WE GOT FROM ANOTHER TRAVEL PROBLEM. SPEED IS NOT A CRITICAL FACTOR.

MANY THANKS,

BOTSLADY

There is a train direct from Frankfurt airport to Cologne (station Köln Messe/Deutz) which takes around an hour and a quarter. Your hotel appears to be half a kilometer from the train station. If you travel 2nd class on the weekend the fare will be around 27 Euros each direction.

You can book the train on the net: http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en?ld=212.18&newrequest=yes&

There are two options: the fast and expensive one by ICE train on the high-speed line (at 300 km/h you are in Cologne in less than an hour) and the cheaper, but more scenic line along the old train route in the Rhine gorge, past the castles and wineyards. Trains on both routes stop at the Frankfurt Airport station. You can look for schedules and prices at www.bahn.de ->Internat. Guests. To enforce the Rhine Gorge route enter Koblenz in the "Via" box

DB timetable
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en
From: FRA airport
To: Cologne Messe/Deutz
or
To: Cologne (for Hauptbahnhof, the main railway station)
and for the Rhine Valley route
Via: Koblenz

According to the Hyatt Cologne homepage the distance from Deutz/Messe is 0,3 km (3 min on foot) and to Hauptbahnhof 0,5 km (8 min). I would say 0,5 and 0,8 km is more realistic.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Kölnisch Wasser

by pieter_jan_v

Can you imagine Cologne without Eau de Cologne or better Kölnisch Wasser.

But watch out, next to Eau de Cologne there is Original Eau de Cologne which is a trademark. The 4711 brand of the Mülhens Company (owned by Procter & Gamble) originates from the streetaddress of the original perfume supplier at the Glockengasse 4711.

The Früh Crew

by richiecdisc about Früh am Dom

Früh am Dom is not just a restaurant but a busy pub especially for the after work crowd. The place is huge so there's lots of different setting depending on your mood. The downstairs has a great stand up bar and they hoist the wooden barrels of beer in from the cellar via a pulley system. The beer may be small but the waiters are adept at getting you a fresh one as soon as you finish. I actually think you wind up drinking more this way! Lots of suits again but we felt fine in jeans.

Baggage checking machines

by Nemorino

The Cologne Main Station now has several automatic baggage checking machines like the one in Freiburg im Breisgau.

Instead of finding an empty locker, if there is one, and hoping it is big enough for your luggage, you simply insert four Euros (double the old locker price!) into one of these machines, take out the card with the magnetic stripe and wait for the door to open. Then insert your luggage, and it disappears. To get it back, insert the card again and wait 30 to 40 seconds till the door opens, and there's your luggage.

I'm not sure how it works, but the actual storage takes place in the basement, because the machines take up hardly any space on the ground floor. In Cologne they have over a thousand baggage compartments downstairs.

They don't seem to have had any security issues with these machines. None that I know of, in any case.

Etrusca

by espadana about Etrusca

Etrusca is probably the best italian restaurant in Cologne - I have been working in Köln for the past 6 months with a team of 5 Italian colleagues, so they should know... ;)
Located near the University, in Zülpicher Straße, a nice street full of bars and restaurants, Etrusca is owned by Filipa and Carlo Padiglia, a very nice Italian couple who are always willing to give you the best of Italian cousine.
Filipa (from Sicily) waits at the tables and will suggest you the best dishes that her husband Carlo (from Sardegna) prepares in the kitchen.

We have been going regularly to Etrusca every week and we have so far *never* been served a dish that wasn't *very good*. There are very few restaurants for which I can say the same...

Chocolate Museum

by leafmcgowan

Opening hours: Tues. to Fri. 10 a.m. to 6 p.m.; Sat., Sun., holidays* 11 a.m. to 7 p.m.; closed on Mondays. Admission prices:
adults 7.50 EUR; groups of 15 or more: 7.00 EUR; visitors entitled to reduction 5.00 EUR; groups of 15 or more: 4.50 EUR
One of Cologne's famous museums, the Imhoff-Schokoladenmuseum (Imhoff chocolate museum) was opened by Hans Imhoff on 31 Oktober 1993. Located on the Cologne quarter Altstadt-Süd on the Rheinau-peninsula. The Museum and exhibition demonstrates the whole history of chocolate, from its beginning with the Olmecs, The Maya, The Aztecs, up through the contemporary products and their production methods. The museum is run by the Schokoladenmuseum Köln GmbH and is partnered by the Swiss Chocolate producer Lindt & Sprüngli since the March of 2006. Prior to 2006 it was partnered with the Cologne chocolate producer Stollwerck, which was also shown by the former name of the museum (Imhoff-Stollwerck-Museum). Within the complex is a small tropiarium entered through temperature locks in a glass cube with 10 metres edge length showing cacao trees of the species Theobroma cacao and Theobroma grandiflorum. Also within are Several production machineries were built as miniatures, so that you can have a look at the production process of the small chocalate bars, which are given to the visitors at the entrance of the museum. A special attraction is the three metres high chocolate fountain, at which a woman dips wafers in the liquid chocolate and distributes them to the visitors. A museum lies upstairs with Olmec, Aztec, Mayan, and European artifacts from throughout the ages. Valuable collectables displayed are porcellain and silver bowls of the 18th and 19th century and pieces from pre-Columbian Mesoamerica for drinking chocolate. There are alsohistorical machines on display and hollow molds for casting chocolate figures. A small theater showing the comedical advertisements and films of chocolate through the ages in Europe. Also presented is a collection of historical chocolate vending machines and games for learning. A gift shop and tantalizing restaurant/cafe lie below and outside along the Rhine. For any chocolate fan, this is a must visit exhibit in Cologne. Rating: 5 stars out of 5.
