    Very well developed network, which you can use very well. Great connections. However, it is weak that you first have to go to the tourist information center at the cathedral to pick up this card. We were outside the city and it was very difficult for us. Every other city does this online. Maybe a little input :-)

    Very good deal if you are spending a day in the city. Because you can use the Cologne Card for unlimited travel on the subway, bus, tram or train and it is not more expensive than the normal day ticket of the transport association. I did not give the last star because the voucher paid for online first had to be redeemed in Cologne. That means I had to pay for the ticket myself for the first trip from my hotel to the city center.

    A lot of fun to do. we have opted for a hotel at the media park. arrival by car immediately in a parking garage. with the elevator directly to the reception (parking costs here about 22 euros per 24 hours). ideal just outside the busy center and the cathedral within 15 to 20 minutes to walk. This is also where the tourist office of koln is located where you can pick up/obtain the kolnkarte. for a family of 4 you lose 19 euros for a day. so-called group card. ideal for public transport with metro within the center. ideal and also discounts on boat trips, the funicular over the Rhine and other attractions. definitely recommended.
