Trains To Amsterdam

by Kokid08

I tried to purchase all my train tickets (On Line)from Paris to Amsterdam via Cologne but the last leg of my journey was put "On Hold". Rail Europe states that there are construction issues from Cologne to Amsterdam. Should I cancel that leg and try when I'm there or wait until they confirm. Our trip is in September and I was already unable to get the economy seating.

Check train connections and fares on the websites of the national railway companies instead of using an agency like Raileurope that adds hefty surcharges and does not show all offers and connections.
For Germany: http://www.bahn.de (has timetable information for most of Europe, English version available)

Thank you Kathrin. It may be too late now unless I can cancel because of the problem...

Unless you mean you were forced into first class, please note also that there isn't really any such thing as "economy seating"! There are different prices on e.g. ICE trains for advance purchase, but the seating varies only between 1st and 2nd class, otherwise it is purely a matter of pricing (within the same class).
I don't know what dates you were looking at but for Friday 15 September I can see no issues on http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en.

P.S. Incidentally when a railway line is completely out of commission because of construction work, the train company runs buses instead, so I wouldn't put off buying a ticket just because of that, it doesn't mean you can't travel. It may, however, mean they are running fewer trains which can reduce available reservations and for some types of train there are limited numbers of the cheaper tickets.

Re: Trains To Amsterdam

by Kathrin_E

On such a major line, however, it is more likely that trains are sent on a detour route and there is a temporary timetable with longer travel times for that period.

When looking up connections on bahn.de for your travel date such deviations or substitute buses will be shown. A major international route like this is never completely cancelled. When exactly are you planning to travel, so we can check?

Re: Trains To Amsterdam

There are railroad works on the Dutch side between Saturday, 12. Sep. 2009, 1am and Monday, 14. Sep. 2009, 5am.

The trains will be routed via Venlo during this time.
Some trains start/end in s'-Hertogenbosch / Utrecht Centraal instead of at Amsterdam Centraal.

> Our trip is in September and I was already unable to get the economy seating
So far in advance this is very unlikely.

Re: Trains To Amsterdam

by Kokid08

We are traveling on Sept. 12. It looks like we're caught up in the same situation as Abalada. I wrote today to see if I could cancel that leg and confirm the first two. I will be traveling second class but I am paying economy rates for the first two trips. At least, that's what the web site states....

Re: Trains To Amsterdam

by Kokid08

We did reschedule or trip so that we corrected the Cologne to Amsterdam problem. We were flexible and now have all of our transportation concerns behind us. Next step is local trams/buses in each city. Thanks again!

Travel Tips for Cologne

More about Welcome Card

by BarryG01

Get yourself a WelcomeCard for your visit to Koln and benefit from free travel on public transport and discounts at many attractions.

Koln has a complex travel network of trains, trams and buses but with your WelcomeCard you don't need to worry about buying the right ticket.

The museums and galleries can be a bit expensive, so it's great news that the WelcomeCard offers up to a 50% discount at most places!

There are other perks, like free beer and schnapps from certain bars and restaurants!

There are different versions to suit your itinerary, but for one person the 24-hour card is 9 euro, for 48 hours it's 14 euro and for 72 hours it's 19 euro. A 'family' card for 2 adults and 2 children (OR up to 3 adults and no children) costs twice as much.

You can buy the card at tourist info offices in the city centre or at the airport plus at many hotels.

Bring a small backpack with enough space for snacks and drinks. Comfortable tennis shoes. I wore flip flops to the park and my feet were sore at the end of the day.
If you dont want to get wet on the water rides, bring a light raincoat. I saw a lot of people at the park on water rides with raincoats to protects themselves and their bags because you have to bring your items with you on the rides.
Spare socks. Keep your feet dry, even if your shoes are a bit wet or bring flips flops to wear on water rides then change back into tennis shoes to walk the park. If you get motion sickness there is a over the counter medicine called Dramamine. You can take it 30-60 minutes before going on any rides and it works great. I also use it before I take long plane rides.
Small facecloth... just something extra, you never know what you might need it for. (maybe its a hot day and your feeling light headed, you could rise the facecloth under cool water and place the facecloth on your forehead)...etc. Sunglasses. Food at the park is expensive so try packing some sandwiches and drinks. I dont think they check bags at the parks (mine was not inspected) because I saw a lot of tourists taking food out of their bags and making little picnics here and there.
At the park you can buy a book/map which talks about the rides and phantasialand in general which costs about 3 Euro but it is a waste of money and space. You can get a map of the park for free and its just as good as the one in the book and handy enough to fold up and put in a pocket.
There is one ride called Winja's Force and I think it is one of the only rides (besides the black mambo...but you can leave your items off to the side) in which you cant take your bag on with you. They have lockers to rent near Winja's Force but they are usually all taken and it is hard to get a locker. It is about 3 Euro for a locker so it is not worth is just for one ride.

Cologne to Mulheim on the Stadtbahn

by SWFC_Fan

The Stadtbahn forms part of Cologne's extensive public transport system. This tram network operates partly below ground and partly above ground and connects hundreds of stations in Cologne and nearby Bonn.

The information in this tip relates primarily to the journey that I frequently undertook between Mulheim (a suburb located approx 10 minutes to the north east of Cologne city centre) and Cologne Dom/Hauptbahnhof station, but some of the information will also be applicable for other journeys within the city.

Tickets can be purchased from machines at all stations. Tickets that I purchased from the machine at Mulheim Wienerplatz station were pre-validated, while tickets purchased from the more complicated machine at Dom/Hauptbahnhof station (use code "2070" for the relevant ticket) needed to be validated on board the tram.

The tickets that I needed to purchase for my daily trip were price category 1b and these cost 2.20 Euros per trip. For shorter trips (I don't know the exact criteria, but I would say 2 or 3 stops), there are cheaper tickets priced at 1.60 Euros. There are a variety of daily passes and multi trip tickets available if you plan to use the public transport network extensively.

The journey between Mulheim Wienerplatz and Cologne Dom/Hauptbahnhof

Cost: 2.20 Euros each way

Journey time: approx 10 minutes

Frequency of trams: every 3 or 4 minutes

Tram numbers: 17 / 18 / 19

The Place after the Game

by RhineRoll about Doping

A Pils (or Kýlsch) after the Ballgame -- (nearly) the best thing on earth!!! When you've been active or out for watching a game in the sports district around the Rheinenergie-Stadium, the sports parks around it or the German Sports University, then the Doping is a handy spot for quenching your thirst. They also serve inexpensive, well-tasting baguettes. In summer, you can sit outside among the many sports students. Beware of crazy wheelchair-basketball players occasionally to be seen around :-) Kýnigs Pilsener
any Weizenbier

Boat trips on the Rhine

by SWFC_Fan

There are a number of boat trips along the Rhine available at Cologne. Some of these are just an hour or so in duration, while others go further afield to other towns and cities located further along the river.

One of the main boat trip operators is Koln Dusseldorfer, which operates boat trips that leave from Frankenwerft, near to Deutzer Brucke.

The boat trip that I undertook during my visit to Cologne in July 2006 was a one hour round trip and cost 6.80 Euros.

The one hour round trip runs daily in the summer at 10:30, 12:00, 14:00 and 18:00. In the afternoon, the company offers 2 hour round trips at 15:30 and 17:30 on another of its boats. If you fancy a longer cruise, you can sail north to Dusseldorf or south to Bonn, Konigswinter, Remagen and several other small towns en route to Koblenz.

The boat that I went on had a large open air top deck and a lower deck indoors that was set with dining tables. Most people, myself included, chose to sit outside in the fresh air, enjoying the views. The upper deck offers excellent views of the Dom and Gross St Martin when the cruise first starts....but the views soon deteriorate when you leave the city skyline behind. The cruise continues under a variety of bridges, passing the chocolate museum and the sports museum. Beyond that, the scenery consists of grassy riverbanks with people fishing and, on this sunny day, nudists working on their all-over suntans!

There is a brief commentary in German and English, but this is as limited as the views are.

The cruise heads southbound for 20 minutes or so, then turns and heads back north for 30 minutes, passing the Rheinpark parkland and cable cars and the hotels and office blocks of northern Cologne, before returning to the departure point.

A relaxing cruise...but the views beyond the city are somewhat limited!
