“Cologne's Cable Car”
Reviewed October 3, 2013

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 can combine the best of both visits.

“it was a wonderful experience”
Reviewed September 3, 2013

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.

“great view and easy access”
Reviewed August 29, 2013

4 people per carriage on the cablecar. 18 euros for the trip but able to get a family of 4 ticket but one way for 12.20 Euros. Can get to it easily on the UBahn and then walk back to the city via the park and railway bridge with all the locks to show the love between couples. Well work a look on the way back.

“One of the FUN things to do in Cologne. Short but fun.”
Reviewed August 7, 2013

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 a beautify spa.. see if you notice anything special about the spa..

“A must do”
Reviewed August 6, 2013

On a stunningly clear day we travelled on the cable car. No queues so very quick. Interesting sights even the nudists! The nearby park gave us awesome break before we travelled back. Highly recommended.
