We bought a return trip and the price of 7€ is fair. The trip gave us a beautiful view of the river and Cologne. I don't recommend it on hot days in summer as it gets very hot in the cabins but otherwise it's worth...More

This is a cheap and fun activity that will not take too much time. Pods hold up to 4 riders and you will be able to see the beautiful Cologne skyline. However, beware that there is a nudist beach in the park below the cable...More

The price was 7 EUR for roundtrip, It's not bad, actually. We got to see how beautiful Cologne is from above. However, the cable car was a bit shaky and it was old. We were kind of scared because it felt like some knot would...More

Wonderful views over Cologne and the Rhine and Cathedral. Return trip to the park from the zoo side in a 2/4 seat cable car. Well worth doing.

For our short trip to Cologne we didn't research any tourist attractions, so we stumbled across the Cable Cars as we walked along the River Rhine. A return ticket was €7 and was definitely worth it, even if you are only in the air for...More

It is a nice thing to do as a visitor in cologne. There is a good offer if you combine its ticket with the zoo's.

The price is not bad but it was sweltering in the cars. No AC and only one window goes down a couple inches. Nice views of the river and the cathedral however, you should know that it goes right over a nude pool area where...More
