Cologne main station - Zollstock: how to get there?

Hi,

how can I get from Cologne main station/Cathedral to Zollstock (Herthastrasse)?I know that a tram is running but I don´t know from where? Where is the next tram stop close to the Cathedral (there is a construction site?)? And is it Nr. 9 or Nr. 12?

Thanks in advance.

Tschüss

You have to change at Barbarossaplatz.

The tram is actually a subway.

Follow the blue "U" signs in the station hall to the underground tram stop: (exit Domseite)

bahnhof.de/site/…bahnhofsplan__koeln.pdf

Go to the platform "Appellhofplatz". Take tram No. 18 and change at "Barbarossaplatz" for tram No.12, direction "Zollstock Sudfriedhof".

A single adult fare is €2.40.

From the underground Stadtbahn stop Dom/Hbf (cathedral/main station)

with the lines #16 or #18 to Barbarossaplatz

and change there to #12 direction Zollstock Südfriedhof.

Cologne Stadtbahn is a mixture between tram and subway

Thank you very much for your replies.

I thought that there was any tram that runs directly to Zollstock but now I have to shedule some more time.

Does anybody know by fortune how long this ride to Herthastr. will take (about)?

20 minutes.

Tram 12 is currently detoured because of the metro construction.

I had almost forgotten about the metro constructions...

And last year I did all the sightseeing by walk.

Thanks once more for all your hints.
