    Getting around

    Public Transport

    The city has an extensive bus and tram network, with various tickets on offer allowing visitors to get good value from their time here – the Cologne Welcome Card, for example, allows use of public transport for 24 hours and also grants discounts at local attractions. To cross the Rhine in memorable fashion, there’s a cable car that’s been running for more than 50 years.


    Taxis aren’t hard to come by in Cologne – both in ranks and cruising the streets – and it doesn’t generally take long to hail one. Good companies to call include Taxi RUF Köln (tel: (0221) 2882).


    Hotels in Cologne


    Cologne has a huge roster of different hotels for various budgets, but be aware that peak seasons – or major events like trade fairs – can see prices rise.

    There are lots of good options in the Altstadt (Old Town), but it can pay to look elsewhere.
