Cologne cable car


Mountain railway/cable car/lift
The Cologne cable car has been in operation for over 50 years and was the first cable car in Europe to cross a river. Since 1957 more than 15 million passengers have experienced the unique panoramic view of the city of Cologne from the air and enjoyed unforgettable impressions. The crossing with the Cologne cable car is definitely the right high point of a wonderful day tour of the city.
