Köln HBF (Cologne Central Station) → Köln-Messe/Deutz
Depending on where you are travelling from you can just stay seated, for many trains arriving at the central station in Cologne Köln-Deutz is the next stop (or the stop before the main station). Be sure to check your train schedule though. If you really have to get out at Köln HBF to take a look at the cathedral, try this to get to Köln-Deutz: Take the S6 or S12. After two or three minutes you will arrive at Köln-Messe/Deutz and exit there. The tickets for this trip are called “Cityticket 1b”. You should have coins handy.
Köln-Messe/Deutz → Partyplace
Once you arrived at Köln-Messe/Deutz go down to the subway and watch for signs that advertise lines 1 or 9. Take one of these Trains (direction Bensberg or Königsforst) and exit at Kalk-Kapelle. Exit the station on the right in direction of travel, take a sharp right turn and go straight ahead into the Wiersbergstraße. After a minute of walking you should see an iron fence gate across the street, pass through it on the left side to enter the industrial area, where the Abenteuerhallen (“AH” over the entrance) is located on your right side.
Another option is to take the bus line 150 (direction “Heinrich-Bützler-Straße”) and exit at the stop “Christian-Sünner-Straße” right in front of the Abenteuerhallen. The bus leaves every 30 minutes and you only have to get a short trip ticket (Kurzstrecke).
Mobile & Apps
The local transport association VRS has a mobile version of the timetable online. In addition they offer Apps for both iPhone and Android devices.
