Flying to COLOGNE (CGN) Airport

The most convenient airport to arrive at is the Köln-Bonn Flughafen, known internationally simply as Cologne(CGN).

There are many direct flights from European cities, especially from budget airlines (Ryanair, Air Berlin...), but also from Lufthansa and other national carriers. There is a BUS service ( #SB60 ) to the Bonn Central Railway Station (Bonn Hauptbahnhof or Hbf). The journey takes about 34 minutes. A single ticket costs ca. EUR 8.00; the ticket is also valid for the onward journey from Bonn Hbf to the IGG (see below).

The cost of a TAXI to Bonn or the IGG is about EUR 45-50.

Flying to DUSSELDORF (DUS) and FRANKFURT (FRA) Airports

The Dusseldorf Airport offers direct train connections to the Bonn Central Station, which takes just over 1 hour.

Frankfurt Airport and Bonn are linked through a high-speed train connection (ICE) via the station Siegburg/Bonn. It takes about 40 minutes and often can be included in your air plane ticket if you book your flight via Frankfurt to Cologne (QKL). At Siegburg/Bonn you just go down the stairs and board the tram ( #66  ) to Bonn Hbf (about 25 minutes). A tram ticket (Preisstufe 3) for EUR 5.00 is needed. Some trams have vending machines inside. However, these do not accept notes.
