Best atmosphere in Germany

It would be very difficult to replicate our visit to this pub. And it would be easy for things to go poorly there. However, with a little help from some locals, this destination became our best night in Europe. First, the place is incredibly busy. Regulars told us they try to get there right when... read more

On trip advisor this sounded like one of the best restaurants in Cologne, so we tried it and it was. The pork chops are a must. They are massive and moist. The service is friendly and the prices are very reasonable. We will definitely go again.

I had a few favorite bars in Europe, but only a very few. Lommerzheim immediately landed on my very top list, only to match my favorite bar in London and Amsterdam. This place is authentic, extremely warm in atmosphere, and reminds you to an optimistic area of modernism. The staff is super friendly and fun, absolutely made me comfortable as... More

Had a quick stop in cologne enroute to Lux from the Netherlands. After a visit to the Dom it was time for lunch before hitting the Koln Triangle. It was busy for 2pm but we found a table. The staff was friendly and new just enough English to steer us towards Bratwurst and 3 different types of potatoes ( fries,... More

Very busy on an evening. Arrived at 7 and locals were queuing (more like huddled) on the pavement waiting for a table in the garden. We were told we could be seated in the restaurant immediately but we might have to wait 30 mins for the garden. We were in no rush, the weather was beautiful and they bring drinks... More

We call it "the pork chop place" and that's what it is. Not much more on the menu than porkchops or scnitzels, with or without onions (with) and potato salad or fries (both?) Probably the best pork chop ever. Get there right at 430pm when they open for a sure seat, other times are quite hit or miss. The garden... More

A little bit intimidating when we arrived as it was packed with locals but we waited and got a table after about 15 mins. Locals and staff that we spoke to were really friendly, we got a quick tour of the pork kitchen, beer was good and the portions were large and tasty. Brotwurst was good but pork chop was... More

We went to Lommerzheim on our first night in Cologne and when we arrived it was so busy but expected on a Friday. We weren't very sure on how it worked but after going to the bar and a group of Germans explained it is a first come first served for tables. The bar man asked for my name and... More

Great bier, great food, great service. This place is a traditional Kölsch Kneipe and they are rightly proud fo the fact.
