Welcome to our hostel

Located right on the riverbanks of the Rhine, this hostel in Koln provides a great location for groups looking for a city centre base but with a bit less bustle.

In a peaceful area with beautiful gardens this hostel – which was renovated in 2011 - provides all guests with an all-you-can-eat breakfast which is included within the price – perfect for starting your day’s activities.

With a U Bahn stop almost opposite the hostel, groups can easily get to the major attractions. And if you are a family looking to travel to this historic city make sure you enquire about the family-friendly packages at the hostel– there is one that includes entrance to the world-famous Cologne Zoo (just 1km away from the front door).

For school groups the hostel can also organise great itineraries which show off the best of the city with a mixture of culture and sports thrown in. A popular four-day programme which is organised includes visiting the Cathedral and climbing all 553 steps to the top of the tower followed by karaoke as well as a visit to the Olympic museum. Teachers can rest-assured that their students will be well-looked after both in the hostel as well as then they are out and about.

So whatever your group’s reason for visiting this vibrant city, the Riehl City Hostel is waiting to welcome you. Why not make an enquiry today?
