About the Cologne Hauptbahnhof:

The Cologne Central Train Station, or Koeln Hbf in German, connects passengers with more than 1,300 passenger trains each day. These trains will take you to destinations throughout the country of Germany and to European countries beyond its borders. From Cologne, it’s possible to get to Brussels, Paris, Frankfurt, London and more. As such, the Cologne Hauptbahnhof is considered a major train station in Europe. In other words, it’s a hub for short- and long-distance train traffic in Europe.

The story of the Central Train Station is one of convergence and modernization. By the mid-1800s, Cologne had five separate train stations. However, this setup created a number of transportation challenges: Eventually, city bosses made the decision to build one central station that would bring transportation together in one place.

Today, it does just that. After a long series of renovations, site changes and two World Wars in Europe, the Cologne Hauptbahnhof is in service. It’s an impressive structure, with an impressive neighbor: When people disembark from the trains, they catch sight of one of Cologne’s most famous landmarks: its cathedral.

The design of the station allows travelers to relax. A VIP lounge for first-class welcomes travelers with complimentary food and drinks. WiFi is available throughout the train station. There are restaurants and coffee shops where travelers can eat between trains or unwind after a long trip.

They begin on the last Monday before the Advent starts and go on for about a month. Even though a chill will be in the air, you won’t regret walking through the snowy streets of Cologne during the season. The air is filled with carolers and the laughter of children and adults alike.
