The cable cars are lovely and give you an unbelievable view of the city. It's a short trip but fun! Be warned it does pass over a nudist spa but you are high up so it's not a problem!If the weather is too windy it will not operate so check first.

Ok, so I took my family to the Cologne zoo, which was nice, We decided to take the cable car over to the Rhine Park. The queue was quick and the staff were excellent. They took our pram and gave it it's own carriage, which was nice. We also had the option to leave it there. Now, it was a... More

Having walked along the river's edge to the Botanical Gardens, we decided to take the cable car across the river and walk back to the city centre on the opposite side of the river. The cable car is sited right by the zoo and gardens. It was only 4 euros 50 cents per person to cross and took about 5-6... More

For great view over the Rhine and over the city this is the best way to cross the river. Fairly long queues on the Zoo side when we arrived but the line moves quickly (perhaps with typical German efficency!) so was only 10 minutes or so before we were up and away. We had a little car to ourselves but... More

For a small fee of 4.50 euros, you can take this cable car ride to get a quick bird's eye view of the city from one end of the river to the other. Worth trying!

This thing is fab, and well worth a go. Crosses you over the river and you can get a single or return ticket. No massive queue and its a pleasant mode of transport. Just be careful as you go over the park looking over the edge - their is a nudist spa which can be a bit shocking if you're... More

The cable car across the Rhine accommodates 4 adults. After walking around the city center, we decided to take a short train ride up to the zoo to catch the cable car across the Rhine to a beautiful park. The ride provides an excellent view of the Dom. I was not very excited about the confined space or the rickety... More

Read that this was a must do so I took a ride at almost 4.30pm without a queue at the counter. The ride was rather short, but I wanted to walk the park across the river and walked on the bridge back to the Dom.

Once you have visited and experienced the entire city around the Rhine on foot, the Seilbahn gives a different view that is time well spend. I would recommend spending quality time in the beautiful Rhine park in the evening once you get off the cable car if you arrive from the Zoo after spending a long time there. The cable... More
