How to get to Cologne

Cologne is served by three airports: Cologne/Bonn (CGN), Düsseldorf (DUS) and Frankfurt (FRA). Düsseldorf and Cologne/Bonn airports both have train stations with
frequent local trains to the Cologne main station (Köln Hauptbahnhof). From Frankfurt airport you can take a fast ICE train to Cologne. If you arrive with Lufthansa
or StarAlliance, note that the train connection Frankfurt Airport <-> Cologne has a Lufthansa flight number. You can very conveniently check in and out at Cologne
Main Station (Airport code: QKL), and you will often get the train ride for free as a "connecting flight".
