Hotel in The East Side of The River

by Octave

I found a couple of cheap hotels in the east side of the River in Cologne. Can i cross the river, walking. Anyone knows this hotels?

Mülheimer Hof
Ars vivendi Garni

are they on a suburban area? How much do i spend in public transportation getting there from the city center?

one other question: im going to Wetter, a small town near Hagen, near Dortmund. Which is the best station to catch the train? The Main one or if i stay in the east side of the river, is there a better one?

Don't know both hotels, but found some comments of people who stayed there. Based on that I would defitively prefer the Ars Vivendi!
Yes, you can cross the river walking, this includes also the railway bridge!
Public transport is 1,50 - 1,90 for single ticket, for a whole day 5,20 EUROs.
Going to Hagen, there is a train every hour from Köln-Deutz (close to the hotel)to Hagen - less than 50 min. No reservation required. Taking an IC or ICE train from main station is no value, not much faster much more expensive.

Boa viagem

using the address of the Ars vivendi Köln:

DB timetable
http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en
From: [address] Lahnstr. 30, 51105 Koeln
To: [station/stop] Wetter(Ruhr)
and select as means of transport "only local transport".
NRW-fare ticket is EUR 15,60. This is a zone-to-zone ticket covering all local public transport. I.e. it covers the complete trip incl. buses.

Single ticket for any trip inside Cologne is EUR 2,30.
Distance to the city centre is approx. 3 km.

Travel Tips for Cologne

Cologne`s “fifth season”

by Leipzig

Cologne`s “fifth season”, world-famous as a colourful, joyous celebration, annually attracts around one million visitors into the city. The Three Mad Days are the end and climax of Cologne Carnival. The time of merrymaking in the streets is officially declared open at Alter Markt on the Thursday before the beginning of Lent. Pubs stay open till the early hours of the morning, and the spirit of Carnival reigns in the streets and public squares, in offices and at home, and above all in places for dancing and drinking.

I personally do not like to celebrate carnival but maybe you do.

Mooning around Cologne

by yooperprof

An Alter Markt (Old Market) landmark, this puckish lad is known (in the Kolsch dialect) as "dä Kallendresser."

You have to look up - way up - to find him. He's on the house that is known as "Em Hanen." The story goes that the owner of the property wished to display his complete and utter contempt of the city fathers. Artistic licence goes a long way here!

Easy Access

by sandysmith

Getting to and from Cologne has never been so easy. We flew easyjet from Liverpool in under 1hr 30 mins and at a very low cost - in fact cheaper than some rail journeys in the UK we'd undertaken recently :-S Cologne/Bonn airport is modern and efficent with good rail and bus connections. We were met by Sabsi at the aiport but if you need to use public transport its no problem (see next tip)

Food On The Move

by steventilly about Pretzel Guy!

I just adore pretzels, especially these big, freshly made types that you get in Germany & Austria. It seems everywhere we went there was some guy wandering around selling pretzels. This one was on the waterfront in Koln. Pretzels - either salted or cheesed!

Gay Bars

by Maidstoneman

Cologne has a cosmopolitan atmosphere and this has given rise to a profusion of gay bars, saunas and clubs. In fact its a bit like a less-tacky Amsterdam. There is a great gay map which shows them all and you can walk to most of the central ones.
My favourite sauna - one of the most luxurious in the world - is Badehaus am Römerturm, just outside the centre. You can spend all day and evening there as they serve very good food.
