Reply To: Cologne Airport to downtown

Back to Forum


Can anyone help me with some advice re Cologne?

I’m scheduled to go to Cologne soon and the people I am traveling with have booked an airport hotel on the basis that; “it only takes half-an-hour on the train to downtown”. I’ve tried to get them to change as I would much rather be downtown but they’re digging in and I have to stay with them at the airport.

Has anyone any experience of traveling from airport to downtown and is it as seamless as I’m being told? Tripadvisor sates the trains are every half hour and take half an hour…so it shouldn’t be hugely traumatic but I have visions of horror!

Thanks in advance.
