Travel by plane
The closest airport to Cologne is Köln-Bonn Flughafen (CGN). The airport has its own train station. You can take a variety of trains such as S-Bahn, Regional-Express (RE) or InterCity-Express (ICE) to get to the main train station of Cologne (Köln Hbf). They all stop there regularly and the ride takes around 10-15 minutes.
Another possibility is Düsseldorf Flughafen (DUS). It also has a train station where you can regularly take an RE to the main train station of Cologne. This takes around 40 minutes.
The cheapest way to get around Cologne is by walking or taking a bike. If you want to rent a bike, there are several services like Colonia Aktiv, Radstation Köln and Call A Bike from the German Railways (Deutsche Bahn).
To use the trams and subways, you have to buy a ticket for the fare zone 1b. You can find information about ticket options and the prices at the website of the transport services of Cologne, Kölner Verkehrsbetriebe (KVB). I wouldn’t recommend getting the KölnCard for Cologne visitors which costs 9 € for 24 hours whereas the normal TagesTicket (ticket for one day) costs 8,50 € – unless you want to take advantage of the discounts for restaurants and cultural attractions that the KölnCard offers. An EinzelTicket (one trip) costs 2,80 € so you should calculate whether the WochenTicket (ticket for one week) for 24,70 € or the 4erTicket Erwachsene (4 trips) for 10,70 € are worth it.
How to get to the university
The University of Cologne can be reached from the main train station Dom/Hbf by taking the subway 16 or 18 (directions Brühl/Bonn/Klettenberg) to Neumarkt. There you can switch to the tram 9 (direction Sülz) which you take until the tram stop Universität. From there it’s a short walk to the main building of the university (see map above; you have to turn right).
If you get off the train at the station Köln Messe/Deutz, you can take the tram 9 (direction Sülz) directly to the tram stop Universität. In both cases it will take you between 15 and 20 minutes to reach the university.
If you arrive at the train station Köln Süd, you can take the tram 9 (direction Sülz) from there (stop is called Dasselstr./Südbahnhof) and get to the university in 2 minutes. (Or walk.)
You can book rooms at the Hotel Conti or the Hotel Hopper for a discount. Both are in walking distance to the university (15 minutes). Since the number of rooms for this discount is limited, you should book soon if you wish to take advantage of this.
To book the rooms, please contact the hotels directly and state the “DiXiT” keyword.
