Arrival & Mobility

Cologne is just around the corner!

With 17 million people living within 100 km of the city, Cologne is situated in Germany’s most populous state, North Rhine-Westphalia (NRW). Another plus is NRW’s proximity to the Benelux countries of Belgium, Netherlands, Luxembourg. Accounting for 27 percent of foreign direct investment (FDI) into the country, NRW is also Germany’s biggest destination for investment capital. Likewise, nowhere else in Germany is home to as many international companies, not forgetting the huge number of small and medium enterprises that also call the region home. And that makes for very good prospects indeed!

With the event ticket from the Deutsche Bahn railway company, congress participants can travel to Cologne and back home comfortably for a fixed price. For traveling inside the city, the local public transportation network KVB offers the CongressTicket Cologne. With this ticket, your event participants can travel flexibly within Cologne and in the selected zone of the regional VRS public transportation system at special rates.

You can also reach Cologne quickly and easily by car via numerous motorway connections and the train takes you comfortably and environmentally friendly directly into Colognes city centre.
