The easiest way to get from Krakow (Poland) to Cologne/Koln (Germany) is a combination of flight and ICE Train. My lovely half was in charge with the tickets this time and he found this precious plane tickets from Krakow Airport to Frankfurt, and from Frankfurt to Cologne train tickets. But not any train tickets: ICE Train tickets - if you do not know the difference, fear not! I shall explain ;) My husband bought the tickets around one month before our flight and they were quite cheap at the time - if you buy them in time they will always be cheaper ;) - so we had Lufthansa. And that was quite comfortable ;)
As ever, I was fascinated about the architecture design of the train station and snapped some shots for you lads and lasses to look upon and make up your mind if it is worth a look.
***ICE trains are the highest category (Class A) trains in the fare system of the Deutsche Bahn. Their fares are not calculated on a fixed per-kilometre table as with other trains, but instead have fixed prices for station-to-station connections, depending on a multitude of factors including the railway line category and the general demand on the line. Even on lines where the ICE is not faster than an ordinary IC or EC train (for example Hamburg to Dortmund), an additional surcharge will be levied on the ground that the ICE trains have a higher comfort level than IC/EC trains.
