Cologne (Koln) Apartment Rental Photos and Description

2 roof terraces, view of the Cathedral, 2bedrooms, 4people, Full equipment, WLAN

The sun-drenched 3-room penthouse in Cologne’s “Sülz” district in the vicinity of the university, which is particularly popular with students and young families, makes you feel like being on vacation right away.

Panoramic windows with large sliding doors provide for a gorgeous view of Cologne Cathedral and the environs of the city.

On the two roof terraces not overlooked by anyone, you can enjoy the sun all day long.

Due to its massive construction, the penthouse always has a pleasant temperature.

The roof terrace with a view of the Cathedral can be accessed from both bedrooms.

With comfortable seating accommodations, the terraces are perfect for relaxing high above the city.

The flat’s individual furnishing is a mixture of sophisticated collector’s pieces from the 1970s and modern retro-style furniture.

Its creative atmosphere is perfected by the works of a Cologne art photographer.

Restaurants, bars, pubs and shops are in close proximity; the city centre is only some 10 minutes away.

Having stayed at this apartment in the summer of 2014, we were so happy to have the opportunity to return again in 2015! We like the fact that there are a variety of shops, cafes, and markets in the neighborhood within easy walking distance, but that the area feels quite peaceful and safe. It's a snap to explore other parts of the city since the tram stop is nearby. It's also a great spot for families with kids, as there is a fun park across the street. The hosts are welcoming, responsive and helpful, and even made sure that the apartment was stocked with some age-appropriate toys for our two young boys. The apartment is clean, spacious, and comfortable, and we would not hesitate to recommend it to anyone visiting Cologne.

Great Apartment!

  • 5 of 5

This was our second visit to the apartment and it was even better this time as we had some sunshine so we could enjoy sitting on the terrace with a glass of wine in the evening!

Great location, very easy to get into Cologne by tram. The local area is very nice with a variety of shops and good restaurants and bars to explore and enjoy .

Friendly , helpful owners! A great place to stay, would defiantly recommend to friends and will stay again on our next visit to Cologne.

3 Days in Koln

  • 5 of 5

We chose this apartment because of the reviews, the terrace and the location. It was everything we had hoped. The owner met us when we arrived and gave us all kinds of help with directions, restaurants, etc. etc. We arrived in a lucky sunny day so we drank a beer ( the owner gave us beer to welcome us :-)) outside on the terrace. The apartment is very spacious, clean and well maintained. If we decide to return to Koln we would definitely choose to stay here again.

A Wonderful Place to Stay!

  • 5 of 5

If you want to discover the charms of Cologne (and there are many) but without the hassles of staying downtown, then this is the apartment for you. Located just a few paces from a streetcar line (and a five-minute walk from a second line), the apartment is light, clean, spacious, relaxing and just plain a delight. You soon feel right at home in the neighborhood: cafés, restaurants, grocery stores, bakeries, book stores abound (and the best places noted for you by the owner). A place where "real" people live, and not those catering to tourists. The building dates from the 1970s and cannot be any quieter. And an almost 270° degree view of Cologne and its surroundings!

Your host is charming, more than willing to help you get your bearings. He certainly made us feel very much at home. My family and I can only hope that the apartment will be free when we next come to Cologne (because there is still so much to see and do) because we plan on coming back!!

We loved this apartment, and felt very comfortable right away.

Firstly, the owner was a pleasure to deal with throughout our stay; Helpful, attentive, and very knowledge about the immediate local area, as well as Köln and surrounding areas. If we had a question, it was quickly and accurately answered.

Secondly, the apartment is in an excellent location. A train stop is only a few minutes walk, as are many restaurants, cafés, shops and grocery stores. There was a playground just across the street, and a short walk to many nice parks which were both enjoyed daily by our two children. We enjoyed regular visits into Köln, specifically the Dom, the Lego store, and shopping, as well as the Zoo, and the gondola ride across the Rhein river.

Thirdly, we were impressed with the attention to detail in all aspects of the apartment. It was very well equipped with all conveniences of home. It is neat, clean and very well kept. We appreciated the interesting decor. The wireless internet was a bonus, and worked very well.

We would absolutely recommend this apartment to anyone, including those with children.

This place is a gem!

Fantastic apartment

  • 5 of 5

We really enjoyed our stay in the apartment. The apartment was clean, spacious, the beds where very good, the kitchen fully equipped and two large balconies! The owners are very friendly and gave us good tips about the city, but also about the direct neighborhood.

There are supermarkets and restaurant just around the corner. You can also get the tram into the city center. The center is nice near the river, lots of restaurants and squares with terraces. We also walked along the northside of the river, very beautiful! There is a large city beech with nice bars and a lovely parc, Rheinpark. From that parc you can go on a cable car and cross the river. The view is fantastic!

We enjoyed our weekend very much, thank you Stefan(ie)!

The 1970s penthouse is located in close proximity of the University of Cologne.

At the very door, there is a park with a playground and sports facilities. A number of shops, among them organic supermarkets, organic fashion shops, galleries and well-known chain stores such as Rewe, Netto, Aldi, dm and Rossbach are located within a walking distance of 1 to 10 minutes.

You need only 2 minutes on foot to reach the stop of tramline No. 9 that will take you to downtown Cologne, the historic district of Cologne, the river Rhine and breath-taking Cologne Cathedral in about 10 minutes.

To get to the fairgrounds, the Rhine Park or the Lanxess (Cologne) Arena will take about 15 minutes with tramline No. 9 – with no transfer at all.

Tramline No. 18, at a walking distance of 5 minutes, will take you directly to the Media-Park, to the popular Agnesviertel, to the Cologne Zoo and to the botanic garden.

The university, the university clinic and the planetarium are only a few minutes’ walk away.

The inner green belt with the Aachener Weiher (Aachen Pond) is a popular meeting point for those living in or visiting Cologne – and is only 700 meters away from the flat. This is the place for a barbecue and for chilling out – in the city’s most famous beer garden or organized by you in the meadow.

Cologne’s lively outer green belt, the city’s green lung, is ideal for a walk in the forest, a visit to the game enclosure, snacks and drinks in cafés and beer gardens or a boat ride. You can reach this resort in about 15 minutes, for example, by bike or tram.

Cologne nightlife takes place in the many discos, clubs, restaurants and pubs of downtown Cologne and the Ehrenfeld and Südstadt districts. A taxi will take you to any of the popular locations in about 10 minutes for 7 to 10 euros.

Busses and trams run day and night in these trendy parts of the city.

If you wish, we will be glad to give you personal tips on where to get the best of Cologne.
