Worth going on this cute cable car ride which gives a superb view of the central cologne area and Rhine river. the charges are 4.50 Euros if we go just one side or 6 euros two way. Travel and get down in the Rhine park and take a toy train to go in the park.

Should be done really! was a little expensive but not too bad, lasted around 30 mins (there and back) interestingly you go over the spa and the nudist areas of the spa so don't be surprised to see naked men and women! there is also a zoo nearby , you need to get the underground from the main shopping area...

Well worth the 6.50 euros return cost, lovely views over the Rhine, although it was very warm when we used it, definitely worth the cost.

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
