Many great places like the traditional beer brewery taverns ( Uerige, Füchschen, Schlüssel ...) , but als places and too many of them where teenagers drink their first beers and cocktails - with the expected effect

There was full of people, of all ages, and a very good place to socialize. We drunk some old-beer and we enjoyed being here. Also the view is nice to the Rhine river.
