About our home

Our apartment is located in lively, trendy city quarter (Agnesviertel) with a wide range of coffees, restaurants, bars and shops. It is 3 minutes away from 2 subway stations and a 10 minutes walk to the main train station and the city center. At walking distance you can reach the Cologne Zoo or a recently modernized, public swimming pool which also holds an ice skate park in the same facility. Twice a week (Tue, Fri) you may want to buy fresh vegetables, fruits or bread from the weekly market across the street.

Our sun-flooded top-floor apartment provides about 120m2 on 3 floors with a great view on the Cologne cathedral. An elevator will take you up to the 4th floor, leaving only 1 staircase for you to climb. Entering the apartment will bring you to a small entry space leading to a small guest bathroom with a separate shower on the left, the main living room and a staircase providing access to the other floors on the right. The wide, spacious living room holds a flat screen LCD-TV and home-cinema equipment on one end and a fully equipped open-kitchen with a dining table on the other end, from where you may also access the sunny, southwards-oriented terrace. On the same level, you can access a small, weather protected loggia with a sandbox for your kids. On the first floor you will find a master bedroom with a huge waterbed. The boys-room is on the other roof-site with tons of toys and a pirate, loft bed. The main, modernly designed bathroom has a huge tub for 2 adults and a wide at-grade rain-shower. On the top level a guest-room provides another sleeping occasion on a comfortable sofa/bed for up to 2 persons. We have a house-clearer coming to us weekly, every Friday morning.

Where is it?

Neighbourhood

Cologne is a vibrant cultural and media city with about 1 million habitants. It is most famous for Carnival, its beer (Kölsch), the Roman roots ranging back more than 2.000 years and its gothic Cathedral (UNESCO world heritage). Furthermore you will find a wide range of museums, theaters and other entertainment offers. You may want to take a boat tour on the Rhine, relax in one of many green spaces/parks around the city or visit some castle or palace in Colognes surroundings. Or you may choose to drive 45 Minutes to Düsseldorf with Germanys largest Japanese community and enjoy excellent Sushi. Or you drive 30 Minutes towards Bonn, the former German Capital, to start a wine tour in the famous Rhine valley… up to you to choose. People in Cologne are generally very friendly, outgoing and open-minded.

During winter-season all sorts of Christmas markets can be found in the city – from classic to alternative and gay-lesbian, inviting you to stroll around between the booths or to have a cup of hot grog (Glühwein). About 1h30 from Cologne, you can enjoy Skiing in Winterberg offering 74 lifts and 62km of ski-fun.

Cologne provides a great home base for your travel plans across Europe with great connections by train & planes alike. By train you can reach Brussels in 1h45, Paris in 3h15 or Amsterdam in 2h30. Cologne Airport is a Hub for several European low cost airlines, taking you to Berlin, Munich or Hamburg in less than 1h for the price of a cab drive (Deals start from 20-30¤ p. person). So even day-trips are possible!
