By Train

From Cologne Central Station (HBF) and Köln/Deutz

Generally our guests arrive at Cologne’s central station or at Köln/Deutz with the ‘Deutsche Bahn’ (EN: German Train). From there you can either walk (about 25 minutes) take the subway (about 15 minutes & €2,90 per person) or take a cab, which costs about €10-12 depending on the time of day and traffic. From the central station: Take the line 5 in the direction of ‘Ossendorf’ and get off at the second stop (‘Friesenplatz’). Follow the signs to the subway line 15 (in the direction of ‘Ubierring’) and take this line to ‘Rudolfplatz’ (it’s just one stop). From Köln/Deutz: Take the line 1 and get off at ‘Rudolfplatz’. You will see four possible exits, from which you will take the one in the direction of ‘Hohezollernring / Aachener Straße’. Walk past the ‘Steigenberger Hotel’ and into ‘Richard-Wagner-Straße’. After about 300 meters you will see the ‘Wohngemeinschaft’ on your left. See www.bahn.de & www.kvb-koeln.de for tickets and timings. www.bahn.de // www.kvb-koeln.de

By Car

Journey and Parking Information

If you travel by car, we recommend using a route planner. The on-site parking situation is quite inconvenient and expensive. You can find paid parking lots in the garage of the ‘Steinberger Hotel’. Free parking is not available anywhere close to the Wohngemeinschaft. However, the cheapest parking is in the ‘Schmalbeinstraße’. If you actually find a free spot, it will cost you €4 per day.

If you do use a route planner, please remember to add the postal code ‘50674’, since there are three different ‘Richard Wagner’ streets in Cologne.
