Dusseldorf Cologne price?

I need to get from Dusseldorf Derendorf station to Cologne/Köln Dom/Hbf and later from there to Dusseldorf airport. I do find the routes at vrr site but I can't seem to find what it costs?

Derendorf to Cologne is Sunday afternoon and Cologne to Duss Airport is Tuesday afternoon if that matters pricewise? I guess it matters at least as much that trains will be pretty full?

Betweeen Düsseldorf (VRR) and Cologne (VRS) the VRS tariff applies (price level 5). Single ticket is EUR 10,80. This is a zone-to-zone (here city-to-city) local public transport ticket covering all means of local public transport: regional trains, S-Bahn, Stadtbahn (mixture of metro and tram), trams and buses. You can travel on such a ticket from any point in one city to any point in the other city.

Thanks a lot for your quick reply, abalada!

So, I understand the price is the same, no matter whether I take S-Bahn the whole way or S-bahn+RE combo? Any idea which one is better during rush hours (if my abovestated travel times are rush hours) with luggage, little bigger than cabin size wheeler?

May I ask where you can see the prices in the internet or do you just know these by experience?

As Abalada stated, its VRS who sets the pricing here, not VRR, so you can get the prices from the VRS website, www.vrs-info.de
