0932, 0951, 1032, 1051 takes 37 mins direct to D,dorf airport fron Cologne main station, about euro12. I didn,t look at later trains but possibly every half hour.

Exactly, it is very easy, but then when you get off at the Düsseldorf airport (Flughafen) you will go upstairs and from there you take the Sky train to the terminal, that is 5 minutes ride and for free.

DB timetable
From: K

The RE trains are EUR 9,30. With such a VRS/VRR ticket you can also use the trams and buses in Cologne if you don't start at the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station).

For connections where the DB timetable shows the price, the VRS/VRR tariff is not valid. Thus these train tickets do not cover trams and buses.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Perpetual renovation of the Cathedral

by BillNJ

Because of the age and size of the Cathedral, it is pretty much under perpetual renovation. At any given time, you will most likely see scaffolding in some sections where renovation work is being performed. So, if you see work being done on the Cathedral while you are there, don't think that you came at a bad time!

The Cathedral is a sturdy structure built to last. In World War II, the Cathedral suffered 14 hits by Allied bombers -- but, fortunately, it did not collapse. By 1956, the repairs and restoration of the war damage was complete.

Kaiser Wilhelm Ring

by yooperprof

The Inner Ring Road serves to define the limits of the center city. It essentially follows the 18th century defensive wall and fortifications. In the 19th century, following German unification, most of the wall was dismantled, and several parks created from the ramparts. This sylvan glade is an oasis of calm in the middle of one of the busier parts of the city.

Public Transport

by johngayton

Despite being quite a large city Cologne is still emminently walkable with much of the central area pedestrianised and both river banks provided with foot and cycle paths. If you do need to get out and about further afield then the local public transport system seems quite comprehensive and simple to use.

There are a variety of buses, trams, U-bahn and S-bahn services which all come under the local transit company KVB Koeln and so one ticket can be used on all services.

At the time of writing (Sept 2010) a single trip ticket costs 2 Euros, a 4-trip ticket 6.90 and a day-ticket (TagesTicket) for one person is 5.60. There are also other ticket options including a group (up to 5 people) day ticket for 8 euros, but note that this is only valid after 9 am on weekdays (no time limit at weekends/public holidays). Tickets can be bought from machines and newsagents booths (look for the red arrow) located at most stops and at the various KVB offices.

I don't remember the name of this place but it was just off of the main square from the cathedral where they sell cologne 4711.

Great coffee and pastries. One morning I had a strawberry tart, the next something almondy.

There is table service at no extra charge so you can watch life pass by. No favorites, something for everybody

The most important cathedral in Cologne

by Helga67

The landmark of Cologne is without doubt the "Dom". A big dark cathedral near the river Rhine. It has a big square in front and on the side where from November to December one of the four christmas markets can be found.
The two towers are each 157m high and it took more than 600 years to build the cathedral. (1248-1880). Don't forget to have a look inside.
