"More about Welcome Card" Tourist Information Tip by BarryG01

Tourist Information, Cologne: 10 reviews and 7 photos

Favorite thing: Get yourself a WelcomeCard for your visit to Koln and benefit from free travel on public transport and discounts at many attractions.

Koln has a complex travel network of trains, trams and buses but with your WelcomeCard you don't need to worry about buying the right ticket.

The museums and galleries can be a bit expensive, so it's great news that the WelcomeCard offers up to a 50% discount at most places!

There are other perks, like free beer and schnapps from certain bars and restaurants!

There are different versions to suit your itinerary, but for one person the 24-hour card is 9 euro, for 48 hours it's 14 euro and for 72 hours it's 19 euro. A 'family' card for 2 adults and 2 children (OR up to 3 adults and no children) costs twice as much.

You can buy the card at tourist info offices in the city centre or at the airport plus at many hotels.
