About Hohenzollernbrücke:

Buildering is the name of the game. You will be climbing on the rock walls that make up the eastern side of the Hohenzollernbrücke, that means... the hohenzollern bridge right smack in the middle of koeln (cologne).
There are anchors set up at the top of the walls and you may use these and only these for toprope fixtures. You also MUST obtain permission before climbing on the routes and must be in a list of those who have permission to climb in this area. The rock is hell on the hands.

you may climb here between march and november, the winter months put this area off limits.

dificulty of the routes is between 5 and 9 on the UIAA scale but most of the routes tend towards the higher difficulties because of small crimpers and overhanging stone.
