Cologne Visit June 2012

Confirmed visit to Cologne in late June. Six nights at the Pullman Hotel. Hope this is a decent choice.

As noted in an earlier post we intend to visit the Floriad 2012 Festival over the border in Venlo, Netherlands.

Probably intending to make our own arrangements by train from Cologne if not too difficult.. As an alternative will there be organised excursion to the Floriad from Cologne or is it not that big a deal?

Cheers.

There are hourly train connections with 1 change of trains in Mönchengladbach. You can use a SchönerTagTicket NRW (HappyDayTicket NRW) for this trip. EUR 37,50 for 2-5 persons travelling together. SchönerTagTicket NRW is valid

Mo-Fr: from 9am till 3am next day

Sa,Su: from midnight till 3am next day

You don't have to "arrange" anything. Just by the train ticket on spot. You can buy however your Floriade tickets in advance.

Don't know. I see not much sense for offering such a service from Cologne.
