Train journey from Dusseldorf Airport to Cologne Hansaring

A group of 4 of us land at Dusseldorf on Friday morning at 9.30 for a 2 night stay. Would you advise pre-booking train tickets online or is it just as easy/cheap to buy them at the station on the day?

Best ticket for this trip is a VRS mini group day ticket (VRS TagesTicket 5 Personen) price level 5 (EUR 32,60). You can buy this ticket on spot from the ticket machines at the terminal building.

DB timetable

http://reiseauskunft.bahn.de/bin/query.exe/en

Start: DUS

Destination: Köln Hansaring

and select as means of transport "only local transport". Long distance trains like IC/EC or ICE are not covered by this ticket. But it covers also the trams and buses in Cologne.

There is a direct S-Bahn train from the airport to Cologne (Köln) Hansaring. But it will be faster to take a RE train and change trains.

Thanks for the quick reply.

So the 4 of us will be able to use that ticket for the journey to Cologne and then on the local transport in Cologne city for 1 day?
