You feel the city differently when you take the Cologne cable car. This special public tranport, built for the Federal Horticultural Show of 1957, is clearly a symbol of the city. You can't cross the Rhine in a more heady way.

The safest means of transport in Cologne

I especially like the night crossings which are held on a regular basis, usually for Saint John, the long Cologne Museum night and on Halloween. Thanks to the night lighting, Cologne's urban landscape is particularly enhanced when seen from above. The dates planned can be found on the multilingual website. It's also the means of transport I prefer when I combine the trip with a visit to the zoo. You can get on at the "Deutzer-Ufer" stop and go directly to the "Zoo-Ufer" stop. The cable car has transported over 17 million passengers safely so far.

A glance will transport you!

It's pure romance when the two of you sit together on a spring evening in a harmoniously swaying cable car to admire the sunset. We know at least one couple in love who liked the feeling so much that they chose the ceremonial car to celebrate their civil wedding. Is there any better way to reach seventh heaven? Privacy is guaranteed because car capacity is limited to four people. Other than on storm days, the cable car is even fine for people who haven't gotten rid of their vertigo entirely. Bon voyage in the skies!

I've always loved Cologne. The city is industrial and romantic at the same time. I love my city for its galleries, classical concerts and elegant restaurants and its traditional and very trendy bars! My little extra: I love words, the arts and literature!
