    Anyone planing on going?

    I plan to, just trying to sort out a hotel that doesn't force me to take out a mortage :p

    I'm looking at going as well, but for the full week hopefully ;)

    For hotels, try this http://www.venere.com/

    You can set a limit on how much you intend on spending per night, location to where you're going and what not. Very useful site. I used it to find a B&B right in the heart of venice for less than a third of what other places were charging.

    Just had a look at that.

    Hotel Berg is literally a stones throw away from the centre.
    1 person/room is ~£300, but 2ppl/room is £425 (5nights, 21st - 26)

    I planned to go to that with a few friends on a camping, but my parents won't let me. Even if I pay myself. "But dad! I'm going for the games, not the beer!"

    I'm looking at going from the Monday - Sunday (maybe even the monday), so that I get a few days to hang out in Köln proper. I miss good german beer, pretzen and würtz.

    I will be going - literally. ;) If you are looking to stay somewhere cheap don't book a hotel in the center of the city. They are very expensive and the service is bad. Try to get a hotel a bit outside of the city center and get a bus ticket.

    Don't drink the beer from Cologne though, it's awful. :nono:

    I'd be happier if it was in Freising as I know that's the best available :D
