Cologne Bonn Airport

Airport Car Rental

Shared between the former German capital and the largest city of North Rhine–Westphalia, Cologne–Bonn Airport serves an important part of the country. These are three of the most interesting places to visit in the area:

  • Cologne. Proud, cozy, but also very tech-savvy, Cologne mixes tradition and modernity to great effect. The city’s landmark number one, two, and three is naturally its imposing cathedral, but there are plenty of other buildings, cultural institutions, and entertainment venues to enjoy (check out the Belgian Quarter, the city’s most free-thinking area). Cologne’s city center is only about a 15-minute drive northwest of the airport.
  • Düsseldorf. The capital of the North Rhine-Westphalia is often seen as a rival of Cologne, so it’s up to you to visit both and decide which one you like better. A large city with a surprisingly relaxed atmosphere, Düsseldorf charms visitors with its elegant shopping boulevard, the market of Carlsplatz, and unique areas like the Japanese Quarter. The drive from Cologne-Bonn Airport takes only about an hour.
  • Bonn. Although considerably smaller than its two aforementioned neighbors, it was Bonn that was the capital of West Germany until 1990 and the reunification of Berlin and the rest of the country. Still maintaining some of its political importance, it is also home to attractions like the Beethoven Monument (arguably the city’s most famous son) and Poppelsdorfer Palace and Botanical Gardens. The drive from Cologne-Bonn Airport will take only about 20 minutes.
