Do you stay in the city? There are many ways to continue your journey from Cologne Station. There are plenty of taxis and they are reliable. They can be found on both sides of the station, so both on the side of the Cathedral and of the Breslauer Platz. There are two subway stations: Dom/Hauptbahnhof and Breslauer Platz/ Hauptbahnhof. They can be reached via the A-Passage inside the central concourse. There is also the S-bahn on tracks 10 and 11. There are several car rental companies inside Cologne Hauptbahnhof and in the station's direct vicinity. You can find the car rental companies Sixt, Europcar, and Avis on Passage D opposite the DB Travel Center. Hertz is located just outside the station.

The DB Travel Center has an information desk to answer all of your questions. If you want to book or change tickets, you need to go to the DB Reisezentrum. If you fly out of Cologne on Lufthansa, you can already check-in your luggage. If you need to stay overnight, you can go to the Ibis Hotel on the D-Passage. The station also offers Wi-Fi, ATMs, luggage lockers, and a bank.
Cologne Station looks more like an airport than a train station. You'll therefore have plenty of choice for a quick bite to eat, but you can also wine and dine. Here you'll find everything ranging from McDonald's and Burger King to sushi bars, ice-cream parlors and coffee shops.

Frequently asked questions
Is EasyTerra Car Rental the cheapest?
Yes, we offer a guarantee of the lowest price - because we compare various retailers, we can always offer you the best price in town.
What do I need to do when picking up a car?
To pick up your car, you will need your voucher, passport, driver's license and a credit card. It is very important that your driver's license and credit card are in the same name as the main driver. Keep in mind that the local rental company will reserve a certain amount on your credit card as a deposit. This requires the PIN code for your credit card. If your driver's license is foreign (for example, in Chinese), you must bring a translation with you. Only your original passport and driver's license will be accepted - a copy is not sufficient.
