      Evening Shopping or Places to see?

      by kop-queen Online Now Nov 19, 2013 at 1:57 AM

      Hi, we will be in Cologne this weekend for a daytime event. Arriving 5pm 21st Nov Thursday evening, leaving early on Monday.Our days are accounted for but wondering if there is anything to access in the evenings apart from restaurants and bars? We are staying at Park Inn by Radisson Köln Belfortstraße which I believe is a 15-minute walk north of Cologne’s Old Town? Any Christmas shopping markets?

      by asitava Online Now Jun 15, 2013 at 9:00 AM

      Hi, we (I, my wife and my 7 yr old son) will be in Berlin the last week of July. I intended to spend a few days in Cologne (travelling by train from Berlin) and then probably go to Brussels for a 2 day trip and then back to Berlin. Wanted to know:

      (i) Has the flooding affected the Berlin to Cologne rail route ?
      (ii) Do the trains (Berlin to Cologne, Cologne to Brussels) have enough luggage space in the trains ? Will travel with a couple of reasonably large suitcases.

      Thanks for your help in advance

    • Solo Travel around the Christmas Markets?

      by BBaKiwi Online Now Jun 10, 2013 at 1:54 AM

      I have never been to Europe before, but it's a dream of mine to visit a christmas market or two in Germany. The problem however, is that I'd had to travel this by myself ~ while I don't have any fear of doing this, I just wanted to see what people thought about safety etc. I'd be 20 by the time I travel, but wouldn't be looking to see the partying side of the city (my thoughts at this stage is Cologne/Aachen) - just experience a Northern Hemisphere Christmas. Any ideas/advice would be much appreciated. should I just be looking at tour groups who do these breaks?

    • Where to eat during Christmas Markets

      by powells3 Online Now Nov 23, 2012 at 3:59 AM


      I am travelling to Cologne on Friday 7 December, in a group of 9 adults, and I would like to make a restaurant reservation for our first night. We would like a traditional restaurant, nothing too fancy, but with good food and a cozy atmosphere. I have looked on trip advisor, but all of the restaurants I have contacted are fully booked for this date.

      We are staying at the Hilton and ideally we don't want to travel too far to eat, on our first night.

      I would be grateful for any recommendations.

      Public transportation during Christmas time??

      by monica88 Online Now Nov 17, 2012 at 2:13 PM

      Hi again!

      So I also wanted to know how is the public transportation in Köln 24 - 27.12? I've been looking online for the info bt cnt find anything. I know that in some places in Europe buses etc end around midday on Xmas Eve and start on boxing day. I would really appreciate some website where i can see this info! :)

      Because I found good accomodation deals in the centre, but we want to stay near one of my relatives in Höhenburg/Kalk, so I need to know how easy it will be to move during those days from the centre to Höhenburg, or if I should just get a place closer by. Staying in the centre would have its perks though.
      Is Höhenburg far from the centre or is it walkable? :)

      Thank u!

      Cologne - 4 free hours in city center

      The bus from other place shall drop me in the city center on 11:00 for about 4 hours, until the pick-up to the airport. We are 2 adults and 3 children, age of 10 - 8.
      No knowledge of the language. First time in Germany.
      Assuming we will need 1 hour for lunch (is there any McDonald's around?), how would you suggest spend time, what to see, where to go, for such a short stop?
      please advice with basics instructions regarding streets, direction, tram line and stop etc.

      Lockers at Messe - Deutz station

      by LoSko Online Now Jun 24, 2012 at 2:58 PM

      Are there any lockers in Messe Deutz station?

      I will arrive in Koln by train and I need to go the Rheinpark zone for a couple of hours. Then I'll have to move back to an hotel in the center.

      To save time I'd like to move directly to Messe Deutz station by train upon arrival at HBF (my train ticket allows it) avoiding to have to check in first to the hotel, move to Rheinpark, and then moving back to the hotel. Since I'm really in a hurry, that would save me the time of my first movement to the hotel.

      Obviously it would mean that I should carry all the luggage with me during my short stay in Rheinpark. So I'm asking you if the Messe Deutz station provides any lockers service, and how much would it cost.

      Thank you

      Frankfort airport to Cologne express train

      by gaolei Online Now May 27, 2012 at 6:19 AM

      I understand that lufthansa airline has an arrangement where they include an express train ticket with the flight ticket. This gets you to Cologne on a train rather than air. Does anyone have experience with this?

      Where does the train go to in Cologne? Does it go to downtown near the convention center, or does it go to the airport?

      Cologne to Munich - Train, Bus, Air?

      by haysnoe Online Now Mar 20, 2012 at 8:47 AM

      I am flying into Dusseldorf early in the day (flight lands from US at 0700). From there I will take local transport to Cologne to visit the cathedral (conveniently located right next to the train station) for several hours. I then need to get to Munich either later that day or by end of the next day.

      My question: What is the most economical way to get to Munich from Cologne? A slow train or even a bus would be fine since I'll be jet-lagged and won't mind a slow pace. Most important consideration for me is price. Any help?
