taxi transfer costs

Hi folks

Going to Cologne for the Chrismas Markets in December. Anyone give me the cost of Taxi transfers from airport to centre, 4 people travelling with 4 pieces of luggage. Anyone give address of company where we can pre-book transfers.

Thanks

EUR 25-30

I would not prebook, just use one of the taxis always waiting at the airport for customers. If you prebook you have to find "your" taxi. And if this takes longer or your flight is delayed you also have to pay for the waiting time.

If your hotel is in the city centre you can take as well public transport. Will be faster (shorter route as the Hohenzollern bridge is only for trains and pedestrians) and cheaper (EUR 2,30 pp).

Train station is directly in the basement of the terminal buildings.

The tickets are good to reach any train/tram/bus stop in Cologne.

Maritim is at the Heumarkt (Hey Market). Approx. 1 km from the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station). Maybe 2 km by taxi (the more direct streets are pedestrian zones).

You could also go there by bus from Hauptbahnhof. This is covered by the same ticket you need to go to Hauptbahnhof. Last S-Bahn to Hauptbahnhof is at 01:34. Than there is a break of 2 hours.

Hi Abalada

Thanks for taking the time to reply. I think the train to the city centre then taxi to hotel will be a good option.

Thanks

Viv.
