Trains to Cologne
Travel to Cologne
Train tickets from £44.50 one way*
Overlooked by the gloriously Gothic Kölner Dom and packed with pretty houses, medieval gates and Romanesque churches, Cologne is a dream for history-lovers and architecture buffs.
Possibly the most famous building in Germany, the cathedral’s a must for any visit. And the top of the tower is the perfect vantage point from which to plan your next stop.
With a busy calendar of festivals and cultural events, there’s never a dull day in Cologne – from the Weiberfastnacht with its parades, masked balls and Rhenish-style partying, to the beautiful Christmas market with its twinkly lights and festive aromas of lebkuchen and glühwein.
With tickets from £89, you can be in the heart of the city in a little over four hours, with a quick change in Brussels, you can plan the perfectly timed German getaway.
