Flying from Cologne

Getting to the Airport in Cologne
You can take a bus to Cologne Bonn Airport from the city using bus route 161, or take a train to Cologne Bonn Airport, which has its own station on the high-speed line between Cologne and Frankfurt. A taxi to Cologne Bonn Airport from the city center is also available, with many taxi companies operating in the city offering fixed rates for airport runs.

Arriving in Sofia
Book your flights to Sofia with airberlin and find yourself in a charming city with an appealing atmosphere, featuring a blend of old architecture and modern European tastes. With airberlin's regular flight deals to Sofia, you can discover this Eastern European gem with ease.
First Time in Sofia
Sofia is a relatively small capital and is easy to traverse, with many of the most popular attractions making their presence known with their dominance of the city architecture. Due to the abundance of Orthodox religious buildings, it is well worth spending some of your first trip exploring local cathedrals.
Students of the past visiting Sofia will find plenty to keep them interested at the National Museum of Military History. Culture lovers will not want to miss the chance to get tickets to Sofia’s National Opera and Ballet.
Making the Most of Your Sofia Holiday
Sofia has a fairly typical Eastern European climate, with temperate summers and chilly winters, so it is best to travel to Sofia for a late spring or summer holiday. If you are looking for the best deals, however, cheap hotels in Sofia are easiest to find outside of this peak season. Expect exceptional service and quality when you fly to Sofia with airberlin.
