    The Bonn-Köln (for example Cologne) airport (ie CGN) contains a train link. It will take about 15 min as a result of train (S-Bahn, use number S13) into Köln Hauptbahnhof (ie Cologne main station) for just two, 30€ as of Sept 2007. There are typically three trains per hour, so you will on average just wait 10 minutes.

    Don't forget that when you descend from the airport Arrivals level on the underground train level there are actually four ticket machines that will be (i) complicated to use, (ii) would possibly not accept the coins/notes/cards you've got, and (iii) may have big queues. You may be better to buy a ticket from the DB (Deutsche Bahn = Languages like german Railways) office relating to the Arrivals level. They can also give you a printed copy of this train timetable. If you decide to do try to use that ticket machines, find the button which includes a flag on it: this will assist you to select a language other than German.

    Be very aware that when you buy a normal ticket for just two. 3€ and then get on among the list of fast trains (IC or ICE) instead of the regular train service (this S13 service) you have got to pay a 7€ surcharge mobile. It's not worth the idea, as the fast locomotives only save you a matter of minutes of a 15-minute journey!

    By taxi, it costs about 30€.
