this attraction was found near the zoo, we found a train type vehicle that took you on the road to the zoo from a square not far from the train station I think it was near the Mariot hotel but couldn't say for sure. We loved the views going over the rhine and my daughter who was around 12 at... More

We visited Cologne on a sunny day. Ideal weather for a ride over the Rhine. Fun to do on a day without wind...

Even if you have a short stay in Cologne, I'd recommend to try and fit this in schedule. It gives very nice view of City of Cologne on the both sides of Rhine.

We were at the Messe (working) so it was only a short walk to the cable car. I loved the experience. The mechanism looked old and so do the cars which makes it a little daunting but that much more enjoyable. The cars are tiny (4 adults would be a struggle). It takes you high up over the Rhein for...

After a long walk around the Rheinpak, it crossed us over to the another side of the river. Our dog enjoyed the ride.

We used the cable car to get back to the car park after a day exploring Cologne. The station is in the park, which in itself is worth a visit. It felt quite rickety compared to some cars I've been in and they're really small so 4 people would be the maximum but the views are really good. Not a... More

Decent; waited 15 minutes in line for a 60 second ride costing 4.50 euro. Great views over the river and partly the old city, and for some looking down straight on the nude bathing pool of the local sauna complex could also be entertaining ;-) Eastern entrance is near this sauna and nice park and middle of nowhere (bus stop...
