With more than one million inhabitants, Cologne is one of the largest metropolises in Germany. Located on the banks of the Rhine, the major city looks back on almost 2000 years of history. Since the founding of the FRG, Cologne has been assigned to the federal state of North Rhine-Westphalia. Due to numerous historical sights, many tourists are attracted to the Rhine metropolis year after year. Of course, every visitor to Cologne wants to visit the city's landmark, the cathedral with its two nearly 160 meter high towers. Many tourists then explore the historic Old Town, stroll along the Rhine promenade or visit the numerous existing museums.

Worth knowing about Cologne-Bonn Airport (CGN)

View of Cologne and the Rhine

Increasingly, many people are choosing to travel by plane, as the few kilometers from the center, Cologne-Bonn Airport has optimal transport connections. The international airport CGN Koeln is located in the southeastern district of Grengel and is about 15 km away from the center of Cologne. It is 16 kilometers to the northeastern city center of Bonn. The airport, also known as Konrad Adenauer Airport, has only been used as a civil airport since 1957, although at that time it was only geared to national operations and had a simple terminal with no car hire facilities. About 13 years were to pass before the small airfield became a pretty international airport with a radar center and an air traffic control tower.
More than 10 million passengers were handled at Cologne-Bonn Airport in 2015, putting the airport in seventh place among German airports. The passenger volume, which has been constant for years, is also attributed by experts to the presence of low-cost airlines since 2002.

You usually pick up your hired car at any car hire company at their pickup station already full with gas and must return the car accordingly with a full tank. The refuelling regulation is used by most providers and requires a gas station nearby, which should also be open continuously. To comply with the refuelling regulation, drive to the Total gas station on the Cologne airport grounds shortly beforehand. This is less than a kilometre away from Car park 2 in Nordallee at the roundabout near Car park four and is open around the clock. If you do not return the hired car with a full tank of fuel, even though you have selected the "fair refuelling (full/full)" option, a small portion of your deposit will be retained to cover the cost of a full tank of fuel.
