How to find us

by car: take interstate A3 as far as intersection „OST“ (east) and follow the signs for „Köln-Zentrum“ (Cologne-Center). While crossing the „Zoobrücke“ (Zoo Bridge) head towards exit „Rheinuferstraße/ Zentrum“. After having passed approximately 4 km on Rheinuferstraße you will see the Bayentower on the left-hand side. There is a long underground car park which stretches over a length of 1,600 meters under the area of the Rheinauhafen.

by train: get off at Cologne Central Station. Take the underground No. 16 (final destination „Bonn“) up to stop „Ubierring“. From there cross the street and turn left to the Bayentower. Alternatively, it is a 30-minute walk along the Rhine river promenade from Central Station to the Bayentower.
