Early in the morning we cycled to Osterath train station to catch the train to Cologne main station.
We reached Cologne main station on time around 8 am.
Our train EC 7 to Basel was scheduled for 8:53 am. But unfortunately there was a break of the catenary near Düsseldorf which lead to major issues for Deutsche Bahn.
