Köln-Weiden West tram station

Köln-Weiden West is a railway station situated at Weiden, Cologne in the German state of North Rhine-Westphalia on the Cologne–Aachen railway. It is classified by Deutsche Bahn as a category 5 station.[1]

History[edit]

The station was built before the 2006 FIFA World Cup to relief the Stadtbahn trains from RheinEnergie Stadion (part of line 1) to the center of Cologne. When Weiden West was opened, people coming from west of Cologne could change there to the Stadtbahn instead of going via the Central Station of Cologne and use the westbound Stadtbahn to the stadium. It was opened on 28 May 2006[3] on a section of the Cologne–Aachen railway that was opened by the Rhenish Railway Company between Cologne and Müngersdorf on 6 September 1841.[4]

Services[edit]

The station is served by Rhine-Ruhr S-Bahn line S13 between Sindorf or Düren and Troisdorf and line S19 between Düren and Hennef (Sieg), Blankenberg (Sieg), Herchen or Au (Sieg). Together these lines provide a service every 20 minutes on weekdays and every 30 minutes on the weekend. During the peak, line S12 also provides services every 20 minutes between Horrem and Hennef (Sieg). It is also served by line 1 of the Cologne Stadtbahn.[5]
