Cologne-Bonn Airport is the main airport for both Cologne and Bonn, and is one of the few 24 hour airports in Germany. The airport is around nine miles out of Cologne, and just ten miles away from Bonn, hiring a car at Cologne-Bonn Airport is ideal for getting to either city. Cologne is one of the oldest cities in Germany, and Bonn is the official residence of the President of Germany, so both have plenty of history and culture to offer. Bonn sits on either side of the river Rhine, and is the birthplace of Beethoven, so it's well worth a visit for music lovers.
Cologne also sits on the banks of the Rhine, and has over thirty museums, such as The Ludwig Museum, dedicated to a range of subjects. As both Bonn and Cologne are easily accessible from the Cologne-Bonn Airport, you should hire a car as soon as you arrive to ensure you can visit both cities. Cologne is one of the most important cultural centres in Germany, founded in 38BC, it still contains a lot of ancient artefacts. The inner city is very modern having been rebuilt after the Second World War, and the views from the river are spectacular.
As both Bonn and Cologne sit on either side of the Rhine, take a day trip, drive away from the city and board a river cruise. Hiring a car at Cologne-Bonn Airport will mean that you can travel slightly down the river and board one of the many tours that operate on its waters. Not only can you see Cologne and Bonn from the banks, but also the cities of Koblenz and Mainz, and the wonderful scenery of the Rhine region. The tour will take you back to where you started, so you can pick up your car, while a guide explains that sites that can be seen along the banks.

Please note that from 15 Nov to 15 Apr many cities are required by law to restrict the circulation to only vehicles equipped with snow chains or winter tyres. For a summary of the orders, please visit www.poliziadistato.it. To comply with the regulations, in specific locations subject to this requirement, vehicles are equipped with snow chains - the price is included in the rental charges through the cost of "Winterization Fee". At pick-up if you decide to bring your own snow chains or do not intend on driving on the roads subject to this requirement, you may decline the equipment by signing the appropriate release form. This change will be reflected in the rental charges. For more information on the fees, please click here. In all other regions, we recommend that you check before renting if your journey includes one of the roads subject to this requirement and therefore request the snow chains, if necessary.
