Getting there

Cologne is well connected to international airline networks through Cologne Bonn Airport (CGN) with its numerous daily flights to Europe and overseas. The international airports at Düsseldorf (DUS) and Frankfurt/Main (FRAU) can be reached by rail in less than an hour. Cologne Central Station also has airport status (QKL). In some cases it may be worth while to book flights directly to QKL.
