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.

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!

  • "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.  
  • "Quick and easy"    
    We travelled from Paris to Cologne, the tickets where easy to book from Australia online, The train was comfortable and fast with food and drinks available onboard, staff where helpfull, and plenty of multi language information announcements.  
  • "Thalys"    
    The carriage was in great condition with plenty of leg room. The train left on time and arrived on time. My only critism is that at the Brussels station, the departure times and platform were only displayed 20 minutes before departure. There were many anxious people waiting to see their train come up on the board. The crew were very friendly and would definitely travel with Thayls again  
  • "Brussels to Cologne"    
    It was over crowded in our carriage. With that, we had little room to store our 2 family size luggage. To improve our experience, we would've appreciate more room for storage for all.  
  • "Amsterdam to Koln with ease"    
    Great trip. No problems with booking.  
  • "An Ok trip "    
    After having trouble trying to identify which train exactly we were catching, we finally got on the train carriage for them to change carriage numbers when we were in them. So incorrect carriage. Finally made it to the correct carriage and it was no different in comfort than before. Still got our own meals from the meal carriage as there was hardly any staff anywhere. the trip was ok but first class it was not.  
  • "Travel from Koeln to Paris"    
    Convenient and comfortable train. However the train was very full and there was limited space for large luggage and it was located in an area you couldn't keep an eye on. Staff not very helpful and brusque. lovely way to relax and see the country side. We had no problems using Rail Europe and it was an easy process and the service we received was excellent - thank you!  
  • "Travel from Hamburg- Koeln"    
    Very convenient overall. Staff at the Hamburg train station were very helpful but from a traveller with luggage perspective it would have been helpful to have had one of the escalators going down instead of both going up! If it wasn't for the help of a very kind young man this may have resulted in disaster as I nearly fell down the steps. Train was very clean and comfortable, plenty of space for luggage (but the train wasn't full). A lovely relaxing trip and a great way to see the country side.  
  • "Pleasurable Trip"    
    A pleasant journey in a clean, comfortable train. The staff checking tickets were friendly and helpful.
