InterContinental Hotel Cologne is a 5-star luxury hotel situated in the heart of the city, only a few minutes' walk from the historical city centre, the world-famous Cologne Cathedral and the traditional event hall, Gürzenich. The main train station, the pedestrian zones, the Philharmonic Hall, and the city's numerous museums, theatres, and nightclubs can be reached easily on foot. The taxi ride to the trade fair ground takes only five to ten minutes and the airport can be reached in 20 minutes. Due to the central location of the InterContinental Cologne, all major motorways around Cologne can be easily accessed.

For international travellers, Cologne is easily accessible by plane. The major German hub, Frankfurt International Airport is served by all major airlines and the train station Frankfurt Flughafen is co-located with the airport.
