General information about Cologne

1.) Pollution Badge
Since January 2008 some of Colognes districts are located in an “Enviromental zone”. Our hotel is centrally situated in such a special area. Thus it is important to get a pollution Badge prior to arrival, to pass such a zone legally. Otherwise the police is allowed to press charges in variable amounts, if they pull you over.
For further information how to get this badge and other details, please follow this link (and change the language to English):
2.) City Culture Tax
Since October 2010 the City Culture Tax exists in Cologne. The hotel is obliged to add 5% to the Logis-Price which the guest will also have to pay.
There are recent discussions about this Tax, but until now there haven’t been made any definite decisions, which prove otherwise.
3.) Local public transport
Cologne’s traffic connection is very good. If you want to go by bus, taxi or train – all of these public transports are reachable. Our hotel is located next to the train stop “Rudolfplatz”.
