How to Reach Cologne

GET IN

  • If you’re coming from anywhere else in the EU, take a train to Cologne.
  • You could also fly to Cologne as many international airlines fly to the city.
  • For travelers on a budget, taking a bus would be your best bet. It could be a long journey, but feasible if you’re traveling on a budget.
  • You could drive to Cologne in a rented car, but if you aren’t an EU citizen, it isn’t an advisable option.

GET AROUND

  • Cologne has an excellent system of public transport covering the entire city.
  • The best way to see the city is to take a tram/subway or bus to a particular stop and explore that area on foot.
  • You could rent a car and drive around the city, but unless you’re aware of the traffic laws it’s a bad idea.
  • Bicycles too can be rented and ridden around town for all those looking to exercise and sightsee.
