Cologne Questions

by 1Karan

I will be travelling to cologne next week for a fair and since the entire world is converging there, no hotels are available now for less than 350 EU.

I have booked myself at a guest house in Bruhl near Cologne.

what is the best way of getting from Cologne airport to Bruhl. I will be carrying heavy luggage.

And then from Bruhl to Cologne Fair?

Is it practical to stay in Bruhl since I would be going every day to cologne and back or should I try to find something closer.


Thanks

Hi,

during fairs hotel rates go crazy here in Cologne. Thus stay in Brühl! To get there from the airport:
Take the train(station in the airport)to Cologne Main Station (german: Hauptbahnhof or HBf))There are 2 options: either the S-Bahn 13 direction "Horrem" or the Regional Express (RE)direction Mönchengladbach. Tickts you have to get in the machines! Travel time 15 min.
From Cologne Hauptbahnhof you take the RE 11 direction "Koblenz"; travel time to Brühl is 15 min.
To daily go to the fair you take the RE from Brühl to Hauptbahnhof and either walk to the fair (10 min): bridge across the river, or take any S-Bahn or RB or RE to East (next staion is already the fair (Station: "Köln Deutz"). Get on site information on this.
Second option from Brühl to the fair is the tram No 18 to Cologne Hbf (travel time 30 min.)and then walk.
For more info: trains (RE,RB, S-Bahn): http://www.bahn.de/international/view/en/index.shtml in English
For tram: http://www.kvb-koeln.de/german/fahrplan/linienplan.html# some parts are in English as well.

Please not the spelling of Brühl. You can use either Brühl or Bruehl. Bruhl is not a correct form.

Single ticket Cologne to Brühl is EUR 3,30.
This is a zone-to-zone local public transport ticket. Covers regional trains, S-Bahn, trams and buses.

Your trade fair admission ticket covers however local public transport to Cologne Fair (Köln Messe).

Cologne/Brühl rail network map
Brühl is served by regional trains. And also by tram (#18). This tram line has several stops in Brühl. But with the trains you're faster in Cologne.

Luckily I got Hotel Muller near the Cologne Hbf through a last minute website so I booked that.

Thanks for all your responses anyway.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Cologne By Night

by aliante1981

There?s one reason why I never (all right, almost never!) grumble when I get to wander around the city at night or in the evening, for whatever cause that happens. It?s because I have noticed long-long time ago that all the cities - especially the bigger ones - are much more fascinating when the dusk or even better the night descends onto them, and instead of the cheerful (but rather plain) light of the sun we have starlight, moonlight, and illumination.

Of course, the degree to which I enjoy a night-time stroll depends heavily on the quality of illumination - for there are few things worse than a bad set of lights that exposes the ugliest features and hides the most attractive details, for night excursions are obviously not for getting acquainted with the finer and smaller details of the sights.

In Cologne, my night-time favourites include the Cathedral (quite understandable, this, I think) - which is also in the picture close to the tip - and the City Hall.

Cologne Centurions

by bonio

2005 is their second season in NFL Europe. Saw the seasons first game against the Hamburg Sea Devils, a 24-23 win for the home team, could have been very different if Hamburg remembered to call time out before attempting a field goal 10 seconds from the end - live and learn.
Disappointing small crowd of around 10,000, ticket prices are very reasonable and include travel on local public transport - buy in advance and use it all day!

Sadly the Centurions and Nfl Europe are no more, 2007 was the last season.

Trains from Airport into Cologne

by FrostyJW

After arriving at Cologne Airport you can buy the Welcome Card at Tourist Information office (in Terminal D, 2nd floor) for 24, 48 or 72 hours, for use on the train into Cologne. The office is open until 8pm. The pass can then be used on any train, bus or underground (S Bahn or U Bahn) in and around Cologne for the time you are there. You write on the card the date and start time, so you can buy it in advance and start using it when you need it. There are frequent trains into Koln HBf from the Airport, and it takes about 20 minutes. Note that after arriving at Koln Hbf Station and you need to get the U Bahn (underground train) to your final destination, the U Bahn is NOT inside Dom HBF, you walk out of the Station Cathedral exit, and walk across the front of the Cathedral steps until you see the "U" sign, which is the Dom U Bahn Station for lines,16,17,18.19 which will take you to Neumarkt where you can then get local trams S Bahn lines 1,7,8,9.

You can buy single journey tickets at S Bahn and U Bahn station machines, and the trams (S Bahn) also have machines on the trams themselves.

We were never checked to see if we had a valid ticket the whole 3 days we were there, but severe penalties if you do not have one!

Persian Food in great ambiance

by Carino about Pinocchio

Recomended by Sulgi we had dinner at Pinocchio during our trip to Cologne. The Restaurant looks really nice and the ambiance is great. I tried the Salad Olvieh (Chicken, Cucumber and some other stuff) and the Pinocchio Spezial (3 different kind of meat, with rice).

The Salad was really good, but the portion is just huge! The Lamb of the Pinocchio Spezial was not that good... but the Chicken and the Rice were excellent.

Including a Kölsch I spent EUR 17.50. Good deal, I was just full after that!

Listen to the chimes

by christine.j

At the full hour you can see some figures of French soldiers at the top of the 4711 house. Chimes are being played and the figures move in a circle.This is at the roof of the house, above the store where you can buy all sorts of Eau de Cologne.
Inside the store there is fountain, giving Eau de Cologne instead of water. This gives the store a very pleasant smell.
Now, November 2006, they're having a sale, many items have been reduced for Christmas. I was surprised how cheap many items were. Usually, a touristy place marks things up, not down , before Christmas. Quite a lot of customers were in the shop, buying gifts.
