Cologne city guide

The city by the Rhine River is famed for its massive Cathedral and its sense of fun. The Carnival and Christmas markets in Cologne are not to be missed.

As well as the legacy from Roman times and the Middle Ages, Cologne has an extremely lively arts and culture scene. Besides being a centre of carnival activity and the capital of Rhenish joie de vivre, the city is home to a great variety of art museums and the Cologne Chocolate Museum with its legendary Chocolate Fountain. The typical local breweries serving local dishes as well as the local brew Kölsch, a unique beer speciality served in special glasses are very popular. The local people love to welcome guests. Open, friendly and uncomplicated: Cologne is a feeling!

Customer reviews

  • "Brussels - Cologne"

    This was my second stage of a four stage journey that day. It took 1 hour and 50 minutes and was good.  
  • "Paris to Cologne 16/4/15"

    I bought my ticket online in Australia and printed it out before I left. The ticketing page was easy to use and I was offered many options to choose the time, date and class of carriage. The train itself (Thalys) was clean and comfortable with ample luggage space (for my large suitcase) left on time plus there was also usb plugs for laptops etc. all in all an easy and positive experience.  
  • "A great trip"

    We thoroughly enjoyed our trip on the Thalys, travelling from Cologne to Paris. Very friendly staff, comfortable trip.  
  • "Relax and enjoy the view."

    We enjoyed our trip which was stress free. We were staying close to Cologne HBF (Station) and walked over with our suitcases, checked the departures board and boarded our train. 1st class was comfortable and we had reserved seats next to each other. No traffic or driving on the wrong side of the road to worry about. We took our own refreshments and arrived in Bern on time to catch our next connection to Geneva.  
  • "Everything worked well"

    The whole process of booking on-line worked well. The travel experience was all we hoped for. Availability of free wi fi was an aded bonus not always available with other rail companies. I would recommend Rail Europe and Thalys.  
  • "Train return Paris-Cologne"

    Travelling from Paris to Koeln/Cologne for the day to visit friends was a most enjoyable efficient way in which to travel. After an early start one could catch up on sleep before viewing the rolling countryside once in Belgium and Germany. The diner car provided all that was necessary for a breakfast meal. Cologne has the advantage of being a beautiful city situated very close to the central train station and tours originated from near the Town Square right near the station. Not far away was the River Rhine from which boat tours depart frequently. The retail area for tourists and restaurants are plentiful around the Square, beer houses included. Return to Paris after a full day in Cologne was most pleasant in Thalys, where again a wholesome snack was again available from the dining servery. Again one could catch up on sleep after a tiring/rewarding day in Koeln. Thalys was an efficient service for the purpose of a having a day in Cologne, while visiting Paris.  
  • "First Class all the way"

    Have never travelled first class before and it was brilliant. The service we received both getting on the train and during the journey was exceptional. Loved the food. The only disappointing factor is that there are often barriers and/or trees blocking the view if you choose this option to see the countryside.  
  • "scenic"

    the pre-purchase tickets are great to save time in counter lines.if you see how many people are in these stations All the tickets I bought worked perfectly. THANKS  
  • "1st time in Europe"

    I arranged all my bookings before leaving Australia on the inter net and all went perfectly well. All on time and very comfortable.  
  • "1st time in Europe"

    I arranged all my bookings before leaving Australia on the inter net and all went perfectly well. All on time and very comfortable.  
  • "Did the job"

    Did the job, comfort in sleeper was average, service very good. Nice views on morning part of trip to Praha.  
  • "Wonderful trip"

    We travelled on 22 May 2014 and were thrilled with the comfort and service - dinner with wine was even included in the fare.  
  • "Disaster Avoided"

    I was travelling 2nd class from Paris to Cologne and the trip was great, except for one thing. I was travelling 2nd class, and when I found the start of those carriages on the platform, the guard at the first door told me I could get on and sit anywhere as it wasn't actually a Thalys train. Fortunately the ticket inspector on route took better notice of my ticket and informed me that the section of the train I was on wasn't going any further than Brussels, and that in fact I should have got onto the train further along which was the one going through to Cologne. How was I to know there were actually two trains? Fortunately when both the trains pulled into Brussels together I was able to sprint up the platform and get onto the right one. SO the lesson is, make sure you are on the right carriage number written on your ticket, and don't rely on the platform staff.  
  • "Beats flying "

    Was a great way to get to Cologne from Paris, very fast, comfortable and great value.  
  • "Hamburg to Koeln"

    This train arrived 10 minutes late in Hamburg and kept getting later and later. I was getting worried about my on connection to London and was 30 minutes late by arrival in Koeln.
