    Excellent three stars hotel. Part I

    by

    We stayed for three nights and four days in the triple room of the TOP Hotel “Koenigshof” in Cologne. This is excellent three stars hotel situated in the historical center of the city of Cologne. It takes only two minutes to get the Cathedral, Minorities Church, Romano-German and several other Museums on your own feet. Otherwise you can get any “must see” places in Cologne for twenty minutes of walking maximum.
    Many celebrities, mostly from the German speaking countries stayed here. Among them I even found my favorite German speaking languages Klaus Maria Brandauer who stayed here in 1982. You can check the full list of celebrities in the bar downstairs.

    The room was big enough, the beds ware comfortable. There were the TV set with main World’s programs, refrigerator with mini bar, central heating and air fan equipped with fumigator in the room. Such useful thing as ironing machine was also in the room. Bath room was big enough and was equipped with the comfortable bathtub. Hairdryer is available in the bathroom too. Everything was quite new and clean.
    Free Wi Fi was available in entire Hotel.
    Breakfast hall although no very big had enough space to receive the guests. Food was typical German that means delicious and plentiful. All personal spoke fluent English and was very polite and useful. Car parking was available not far from the hotel. We were absolutely satisfied.

    Unique Quality: Right near the Cathedral and museums!

Traveling from Cologne to Trier

by utjarrett

My friends and I are flying into Amsterdam next September and will be exploring Germany.

Are there any boats/cruise ships that take daily trips to Trier from Amsterdam or Cologne? We'd love to travel to Trier by water instead of train.

Re: Traveling from Cologne to Trier

by abalada

Trier is by boat rather a 2-3 days trip from Cologne.
.
KD boats on the Rhine
http://www.k-d.com
Most scenic is however not the part Cologne to Koblenz, but the part Koblenz to Bingen.
http://www.welterbe-mittelrheintal.de
Please note that downstream (Bingen -> Koblenz) is on the Rhine much faster than upstream.
.
KD offers also trips on the Mosel from Koblenz to Cochem.
There are other companies, but all serving only parts of the route.
http://www.moselfahrplan.eu/en/tours.php
http://www.kolb-mosel.de/
-> Fahrpläne -> select a section on the map -> click on your start/destination point
The Moselle is regulated, i.e. there are locks. Thus while downstream/upstream plays no big role here, the locks are of course slowing down the boats.

Re: Traveling from Cologne to Trier

Instead, you might want to take the local train from Cologne to Trier (via Gerolstein) through the scenic Eifel region. Travel time is a little over 3 hours. Faster trains also run via Koblenz and give you nice views of the Rhine and Mosel. Travel time for the faster trains is about 2 1/2 hours.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Policemans in Cologne

by sihi

One good thing about Cologne worth a mention is the friendly police. Usually they are ready for help, always try to answer to questions etc. Also there is many female policemans (or "police-womans"??:)) what looks very positive.

Friendly locals

by orlikins

Any time i needed to ask for directions, people were extremely kind and helpful :) As it happens, I do speak good German, but obviously with an Irish accent, so i was often asked where I was from and what was Ireland like and so on :)

KVB - Public Trams & Subways

by simonli625

The city center within Cologne is pretty walkable. The local tram/subways is pretty convenience as well. There are many different kind of tickets. If you are traveling with 2 and more people and always traveled together, then the group day ticket is the way to go. It costs 9 Euros for up to 5 people. It is much cheaper considering a single ticket within 1b area is 2.2 Euros per person.

The group ticket is called: TagesTicket 5 Personen

Avoid Dom in Stapelhaus restaurant

by vebea

We had lunch in this restaurant which is located along the Rhine. The view from the upper terrace is excellent but the food is dull and the waiters are especially unfriendly.
He deliberately spilled the coffee while serving it for example. All the three cups ...

There are lots of other restaurants, avoid this one.

It could have been funnier

by sourbugger

The owners of a somewhat nondecript office building near the Neumarket in Cologne ordered a piece of are from the artist Claus Olenburg back in 2001.

His rather jokey ice cream stuck on the corner with the ice-cream running down the sides of the building is certain to raise a smile. It would have been even funnier if the wrong end of the cornet had been bitten off first ! - I always used to do that as a kid, much to the annoyance of my parents.

Enjoy it. Move on, that's my feeling about the piece. but inevitably the 'art intelligensia' have to write some complete tosh about it : Here is an example :

"The Cone is a form between sculpture and architecture. It echoes the spires of the Cathedral and other churches that project above the buildings of Cologne and are the most characteristic shapes in the skyline. But, the Cone differs in being slanted, and the melting ice cream, running down the sides of the building's glass walls, is a sign of evanescence rather than eternity."

Coosje van Bruggen

Sourbugger says " That's cobblers, it's just an ice cream code writ large, and hang about, where's the bleeding flake in it ?"
