The sun-drenched 3-room penthouse in Cologne’s “Sülz” district in the vicinity of the university, which is particularly popular with students and young families, makes you feel like being on vacation right away. Panoramic windows with large sliding doors provide for a gorgeous view of Cologne Cathedral and the environs of the city. On the two roof terraces not overlooked by anyone, you can enjoy the sun all day long. Due to its massive construction, the penthouse always has a pleasant temperature. The roof terrace with a view of the Cathedral can be accessed from both bedrooms. With comfortable seating accommodations, the terraces are perfect for relaxing high above the city. The flat’s individual furnishing is a mixture of sophisticated collector’s pieces from the 1970s and modern retro-style furniture. Its creative atmosphere is perfected by the works of a Cologne art photographer. Restaurants, bars, pubs and shops are in close proximity; the city centre is only some 10 minutes away.

The 1970s penthouse is located in close proximity of the University of Cologne.

You need only 2 minutes on foot to reach the stop of tramline No. 9 that will take you to downtown Cologne, the historic district of Cologne, the river Rhine and breath-taking Cologne Cathedral in about 10 minutes.
To get to the fairgrounds, the Rhine Park or the Lanxess (Cologne) Arena will take about 15 minutes with tramline No. 9 – with no transfer at all.
Tramline No. 18, at a walking distance of 5 minutes, will take you directly to the Media-Park, to the popular Agnesviertel, to the Cologne Zoo and to the botanic garden.
The university, the university clinic and the planetarium are only a few minutes’ walk away.
The inner green belt with the Aachener Weiher (Aachen Pond) is a popular meeting point for those living in or visiting Cologne – and is only 700 meters away from the flat. This is the place for a barbecue and for chilling out – in the city’s most famous beer garden or organized by you in the meadow.
Cologne’s lively outer green belt, the city’s green lung, is ideal for a walk in the forest, a visit to the game enclosure, snacks and drinks in cafés and beer gardens or a boat ride. You can reach this resort in about 15 minutes, for example, by bike or tram.
Cologne nightlife takes place in the many discos, clubs, restaurants and pubs of downtown Cologne and the Ehrenfeld and Südstadt districts. A taxi will take you to any of the popular locations in about 10 minutes for 7 to 10 euros.
Busses and trams run day and night in these trendy parts of the city.
If you wish, we will be glad to give you personal tips on where to get the best of Cologne.
