Travelling to London with us is simple, smart, and speedy. After a quick change at Brussels-Midi/Zuid, you’ll be there in no time. And whether you’re going for work or play, we’ll get you there feeling relaxed and rested. Read on to discover why taking Eurostar from Cologne to London is the only way to travel.

Departing from Cologne

Departing from Cologne's main station is as easy as it gets. The station is located right in the heart of Cologne, next to its unmissable cathedral and the Rhine river.

Inside the station you can find plenty of shops to stroll around while waiting for your train. Fancy a snack before departure? Then you're in luck, because the station is bursting with culinary options: from typical German sausages to healthy salads. Guten Appetit.
