As a major German city, Cologne is well-served by public transport. Here are some of the best ways to get around:

At just a 10-minute walk away, the nearest tram station to the hotel is Koelnmesse, Lines 3 and 4 will drop you here. 

The Intercity-Express (ICE) is a high speed train known throughout Germany. It’s a great option if you’d like to travel further afield than Cologne. You can catch it at the S-Bahn train Köln-Messe/Deutz station, which is just 800 m from the hotel.

Köln Hauptbahnhof (Cologne Central Station) is Cologne’s main train station, and just 3 km from the hotel. It’s Germany’s 5th-busiest train station, with around 280,000 people traveling through daily. 

 Cologne-Bonn Airport (CGN) is only 15 km away. You can take the ICE directly to the airport’s own railway station. Düsseldorf Airport is only 45 km away, and Frankfurt Airport is just an hour away on the ICE.
