DLR Cologne-Porz

The DLR site in Cologne is located in the southeast of Cologne in the immediate vicinity of Cologne Bonn Airport.

He can be reached as follows:


Take the S 12 and S 13 S-Bahn trains from Cologne Central Station, Troisdorf or Siegburg to the “Porz-Wahn” S-Bahn station. The S-Bahn line S 13 also stops at Cologne/Bonn Airport. Both lines run at 20-minute intervals, i.e. one of the two trains runs every 10 minutes. From the “Porz-Wahn” S-Bahn station, continue with the KVB bus line 162 to the final stop “Wahnheide DLR”. Travel time from Cologne Central Station is around 45 to 60 minutes.


You will find taxi ranks at both exits of Cologne Central Station. Please tell the driver “Porz-Wahnheide, DLR” as the destination. The telephone number for the Cologne taxi call is 19410. The fare should be around 35 euros if traffic is flowing.


Coming from Frankfurt (A3) or Bonn (A59), please follow the sign “Flughafen Köln/Bonn” (A59) and – before the airport – take the “Porz-Wahn/Wahnheide” exit, keep to the right and follow the signs “ DLR” follow.

Coming from Cologne (A59) or from Oberhausen/Duesseldorf (A3), follow the sign “Flughafen Köln/Bonn”, but then continue at the “Flughafen” motorway junction and take the next exit “Porz-Wahn/Wahnheide”, keep left and follow the signs “DLR”.

There are two options when you arrive at Cologne Bonn Airport. Either take a taxi from there (journey time approx. 5 to 10 minutes). Please tell the driver “Porz-Wahnheide, DLR” as the destination. Or take the S 13 S-Bahn in the direction of “Troisdorf” from the “Köln/Bonn Flughafen” train station in the basement of the airport to the “Porz-Wahn” S-Bahn station (first stop after boarding).
