Hop on Hop off Bus
We had tickets to the hop on hop off bus which was a great way to get around Cologne. It gave us a clear understanding of where everything was and how to get to different places. I would recommend this as a first stop when you arrive in Cologne.
Busses run around the entire city and cover a large area. They run every 30 min so very convenient to get to most places.
The bus is a big red bus, you can't miss it and it has the top roof rolled back for people to enjoy a better view and usually the sunshine, apart from when it started to rain and the driver stopped under a bridge to pull it over.
The bus was comfortable and people were supplied with headsets and an ongoing commentary of the area, buildings and history of the city. The information was available in many different languages through the channel that was selected.
