On DB Bahn look for the journeys which have '0 in the chg. column and 'ICE' in the Products column.
Use the earlier/later buttons to search for the cheapest ticket prices.
Departures at different times can be cheaper than others leaving on the same day -so you may need to look through the day's departures to find the cheapest fares.
Book 1st class ticket journey tickets and your seat reservation is included - but they're optional when booking 2nd class tickets, or if you will be travelling with a 1st or 2nd class rail pass.

Final Destination: Munchen Hbf or Basel SBB
These trains travel on the high speed line between Seigburg/Bonn and Frankfurt Flughafen,
The timetable is split, so that in even hours the train to Mannheim will be continuing on to Basel, but in odd hours the trains from Koln to Mannheim will be heading to Munchen/Munich.
Hence many of the journey options for train journeys by ICE between Koln and destinations to the south of Mannheim, involve making a transfer between trains in Mannheim.
