Cologne Bonn Airport

51147 Cologne, Germany
17 Kudos
Cologne Bonn airport was a lot bigger than I expected, though I don't know why I felt like it would be a small airport. Upon arrival you see that there are a ton of parking options, with the cheapest option only being a five minute walk to terminal one. There are two terminals in the airport and terminal one is the more modern of the two. With plenty of places to shop and eat, you will not have a hard time making sure you have everything you need before your flight takes off. One thing we did notice was that even though we were at the airport at 8am, there were quite a few restaurants that we not open yet and we found that to be surprising. Overall, it's a super nice airport, security took less than five minutes and parking looked easy (we returned a rental vehicle and that was easy as well.)

The train will take you to the airport so you don't have to worry about rental cars.

The airport was absolutely empty when we arrived and we breezed right through security. They do have a full body scanner.

Points of interest

Terminal 2
This terminal seemed to house most of the discount European carriers, such as Ryan Air. It's obviously the older of the two terminals.
SIXT Autovermietung Köln/Bonn Flughafen
In my opinion, this is the best place to rent a car if you fly into cologne/bonn. They always have great rates and the staff have always been friendly.
Bonn is a pretty great city. I recommend you go in the spring to view the cherry blossoms.
A great city with a ton to do, if you want to visit from the states, use the cologne bonn airport.
