Festival shuttle

For easy access we’ll offer a daily shuttle bus service between Cologne/Monheim and Düsseldorf/Monheim, both before the event starts and after the event ends. This shuttle is included in the ticket price.
For the festival Saturday, 25 June, we offer a ship shuttle from Cologne to Monheim. The ship "Stromer", which will take you to Monheim, is moored at the covered pier in Cologne-Deutz (near the Hohenzollern Bridge). Access is possible from 1.30 pm. Departure to Monheim is at 2pm. Arrival is expected at 3.30 pm.

(The main programme on Saturday starts at 5 pm on the MS Rheingalaxie, with an introduction to the evening programme at 4.30 pm.) We have invited the Teri Roiger Trio to the shuttle ride on the "Stromer". We will announce the arrival and departure times of the bus shuttle here shortly.

In order to get a better overview of the demand, we ask for a short registration for both the boat and the bus shuttle by e-mail: info@monheim-triennale.de.
