Rendezvous timetable for the optimum connection at night

At the Rendezvous at the Neumarkt, the trains from routes 9 and 18 converge from both directions and wait until all of the passengers have changed trains.


Before this Rendezvous, routes 1, 3, 4, 7 and 16 take you to the Neumarkt stop, and after the Rendezvous, to your destination. This allows for the maximum possible number of connections to be made.


Connections are also available at the Ebertplatz and Barbarossaplatz stops: This Rendezvous offers you journeys on routes 12, 15, 16 and 18.


In addition to the rendezvous at Neumarkt, Ebertplatz and Barbarossaplatz, the stops at Rudolfplatz, Friesenplatz and Wiener Platz are other important transfer points where many connections are offered.

Rendezvous service at 30-minute intervals runs daily from about midnight until about 1:15 a.m. and until 9 a.m. on Sundays. On weekends, services in the Cologne city area run every 30 minutes after 1:15 am. Outside the city limits, night service continues at 60-minute intervals for the most part.
