I'm off to the Cologne show next month. Any recommendations for accommodation, preferably with safe parking for the bike? Cheers, g.
Royal Air Force managed to miss it repeatedly!Its near the catherdral type gothic looking church thingy. its big and you cant miss it.
Stayed there during a trip last year (think it is right near a BMW bike dealer / shop).Try the Ibis Koeln Centrum, it has underground parking and is an easy walk to the cathedral etc.
Cheers lads. Thanks for all the info - really useful. I think the Ibis looks like the best bet - Caprice sounds great, but probably nicer than I need on this occasion. I would LOVE to go to the Milan show Pebble - particularly if KTM and Ducati do decide to use it for their launches - but Cologne is just that bit easier for me to get to when I've only managed to wangle a weekend pass out of 'er indoors. : Another time maybe.......Have a good time in Cologne - I'm going to Milan instead - I hear KTM and Ducati will both be launching their new bikes there....................
Agreed - but it's fun riding around Milan in the wet without a map trying to find a hotel - had to ask about 5 local scooter riders to show me the way last time - they kept belting off and leaving me behind !A lot safer on two wheels in Cologne than Milan.
All drivers in Italy are mental. Fact!
