Simplest way to get here is by tram to Zoo/Flora station. Easy to follow signposts that lead across the road and to the entrance of the cable car station. The other end of the cable car is in the uppermost north eastern section of the Rheinpark with a bus stop nearby. Great views along the Rhein, however not recommended for... More

Cute old cable car system, originally erected 1957 - but no need to be afraid, security standards are up to date! Great view at Cologne skyline while crossing the river Rhine, also nice view at the river banks and nice park heading to the other direction. Tiny cabins (4 seats), each one decorated individually. I love the one with famous... More

For a very reasonable price you can get an exciting look at the city from above. Even with long queues you get a ride pretty quickly. Definitely worth the while!

At the park there is health spa with indoor and outdoor pools, treatment rooms etc. immediately outside there is a water pipe from which you can drink... More

This is a great opportunity to see the city and surroundings. You can ride one way or roundtrip. If doing the roundtrip you can get off on the park side and enjoy the park then hope back on to go back across the river. Recommend for all ages. Round trip is 14.50 euros if I remember correctly.

A magnificent way to view Cologne over the Rhine. We chose a fantastic day with clear skies that gave a wonderful view of the river, the really beautiful park beneath that we had just walked through and the major landmarks such as the Dom. Couple this with a trip to the zoo, from where the cable car starts, and you... More

The rope car takes you over the street traffic, over the river Rhine and the green park, all of these in just a 6 minute ride. It is really really worth to ride on this rope car. We rode 3 times back and forth and enjoyed the views of this beautiful city.

This is a short trip across the Rhine and a really fun thing to do.. We went from the Zoo to Rhinepark.. I suggest the same.. Maybe after you are done with the Zoo and then do the cable car across to Rhinepark and go relax at the park.. While on descent into Rhinepark look below and u will see... More
