Great tender schnitzels with doggy bag option if you do not manage. Meat from eco-produced "happy animals" is a definite plus! This is a must go if you are in Cologne!

I was thoroughly impressed by this place. The schnitzel was bigger than my head (and I have quite the big head), and the taste was very enjoyable as well. This place proves that both quality and quantity can co-exist. I would fly back from Canada to Germany to have this again, and the staff members were very friendly (and good... More

Place looked a little rundown, but once you wen inside ... completely different story. The staff was more than welcoming. The food was absolutely phenomenal and perhaps, the biggest schnitzel I have seen, ever. The waiter was attentive, helpful and expedient. We got shots on the house at the end of the meal - awesome! Overall, a great dining experience.... More

Don't be fooled by the graffitied exterior of this bar restaurant which is in a slightly less salubrious part of Cologne. Once inside, if you can get a table, the welcome is excellent and the food incredible. The schnitzel is beautifully done and probably the biggest anywhere in the city. You won't get better for the price, which starts at... More

Not the easiest place to find.... but don't give in and make sure you give this place a go. We didn;t book and turned up at 8pm, after 30min at the bar and couple of beers we got a seat for the two of us. As mentioned previously, the portions are huge. But the quality is superb, and the taste... More

you can't go to "Oma Kleinmann" with just a little appetite for traditional German food: you have to be really really hungry!!! or you'll end up with a "doggy bag": the legendary schnitzel at this beautiful old restaurant don't fit on the plate. they are toooo big for any plate! and, guess what: they even taste yummy. very, very yummy!

They serve the best Schnitzel in Cologne and the biggest. This is a cozy place to go to with your friends or Family after a busy day, but make sure to time your Arrival! Usually there is a line halfway down the street by opening time, the Food is just so good. If you Visite Cologne don't miss this experience!

Oma Kleinmann is simply an institution in Cologne! Direct on Zulpicher Strasse, in the middle of the university party area (many cocktails bars just meters away), it is a very small restaurant. Expect to stay seated very close to other customers, as the place is always really full: it might take quite a while since you can sit down, but... More

This is probably the best place in Germany to have a Schnitzel. The cosy place was PACKED with people longing for doormat-sized delicious Schnitzels. A new Cologne beer was served automatically as soon as one finished its glass. Don't miss it!

After spending a day walking around in Cologne this was a great little place to end the day with. I am not usually the biggest schnitzel fan, but I have to say the schnitzel here were good.. and massive would be an understatement. I ordered the Salatteller and my boyfriend, the Wiener Art. After reading about the size of the... More
