Why Owner chose Höhenhaus
The house is located in a quiet environment. The street is a dead-end street, all the houses are located along small lanes (3 on each side), which are branching off from that street and of course they are dead-end streets as well. Behind these lanes there are fields from a farm - the immediate surrounding is well-suited for short walks. In a couple of minutes by car or bicycle one can also reach a golf course, the banks of the river Rhine and a forest (both nice for walks) and in summer an open air bath, the only one in Cologne located in a forest. Furthermore, thanks to good public transport (see above) the city center and other towns and cities in the area are easily accessible. On the other hand public transport is also easy to reach: to the next tram station it is quite exactly 750 metres (about 10 minutes on foot). From there a tram leaves every 10 minutes to the international trade fair (takes 13 minutes) and to the absolute center of Cologne, the Newmarket (23 minutes). For the Cathedral/main railway station you would have to change trams once, driving time is 18 minutes. On the way to the tram station (after approx. 600 metres) there is a big supermarket, where you get everything you need for daily life. It is open Monday through Saturday from 7am to 10pm. In case you should come by car, but don't want to drive into the city: 2.3 km from the house is a suburban railway station with plenty of park & ride available. From there you would be at the main railway station in 13 minutes (faster than by car!).
What makes this House unique
Nearby the house there are fields from a farm - the immediate surrounding is well-suited for short walks. In a couple of minutes by car or bicycle one can also reach a golf course, the banks of the river Rhine and a forest (both nice for walks) and in summer an open air bath, the only one in Cologne located in a forest. Furthermore, thanks to good public transport the city center and other towns and cities in the area are easily accessible. In summary: a good combination of the advantages of a location in a suburb and at the same time fast accessibility of the absolute city center of Cologne.

Outstanding hospitality, quiet location
We arrived for a one month stay here as we transitioned during a permanent move to Germany. We are convinced that what could have been a daunting and overwhelming period in our lives was made much easier by the owners of this rental home. We were in a high-end, beautiful, contemporary, full service hotel for 2 days, but having multiple bedrooms, a living room (w/ fireplace!), a full kitchen, two full baths and a laundry room (washing machine) at this home was far better. The house is located in a quiet area very close to an elementary school and public park so our kids quickly found places to play. Additionally, there are vast fields with walking paths that lead to neighboring villages that we walked or ran along almost daily with our dog. You can walk to a grocery store, bakery, and train station within 5-8 minutes (less than a mile). While we were there the grocery store was temporarily closed for renovations but the owners kindly offered to take us to the store-which was incredibly helpful since I couldn't read some ingredient lists or tell what some items were. The owners came over regularly to help translate items that came in the mail, etc as well and occasionally would even drop by with something she had cooked (always delicious). Although the furnishings in the home are somewhat disjointed and a can feel perhaps a bit overcrowded, having a fully stocked kitchen and place to relax, hang clothes, etc made it easy to settle in. The house was very clean. The only minor issue that we had was a little bit of trouble accessing the internet at times, as it is really only available in one room via wifi and sometimes the signal would not be strong enough, but usually a call or quick visit to the owners next door who would reset it, would get it back up and running. We have recommended the property to others and would do so again. If we had the need to stay in Cologne again, we would very likely stay here.
business stay in Köln
