Rudolfplatz is a major public square and transportation hub located in the Innenstadt district of Cologne, Germany. In addition to being a major junction between the Cologne Ring and Aachener Straße, Rudolfplatz also has an interchange of the Cologne KVB, so it is a very busy area. It is most known for is its large collection of entertainment venues, and features many of the restaurants, cafes, movie theatres, bars and nightclubs that make up the nightlife of Cologne. This gives the area in and around the square a distinctly youthful vibe.
- Explore the Hohenzollernring entertainment district, adjacent to Rudolfplatz, and grab a coffee in one of the many street side cafes or dance the night away in some of Cologne’s most popular discotheques.
- Catch a lowbrow comedy at the nearby Volkstheatre Millowitsche, a historic theatre that has been putting on bawdy shows in Cologne since the late 18th century.
- Get a feel of what the city was like in the 12th century at Hahnentorburg, the ancient city gate that stands at the centre of the square, and once guarded the western entrance to the city.
Since Rudolfplatz acts as an interchange station and hub of the Cologne Stadtbahn lines, it is very easy to use the city’s amazing public transportation to get here. The KVB station at Rudolfplatz has an over ground track for lines 1 and 7, as well as an underground section for lines 12 and 15. The Rudolfplatz station makes it convenient for travellers to arrive here from nearly anywhere across the city. Once there, the square has plenty to see within walking distance. Visitors can also take a taxi to any location in the city.
