“Great German food and beer”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 29, 2012

I loved Brauhaus Alter Bahnhof. It's a brewery, bar, and restaurant housed in a fairly grand old building and it serves very traditional German food and beer, done simply and well. My favourite dish was the schnitzel, asparagus, and potatoes with hollandaise sauce - as asparagus was in season on my visit they had a special menu for it. Also good was gammon, mashed potatoes and sauerkraut, as well as the bratwurst.
I also have to mention the alt beer served here - small glasses of cold, fresh, delicious beer which complements the food and surroundings perfectly. This place isn't fancy or refined, but it does great, simple food and veer very well indeed.

“The jewelry of Oberkassel !”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 6, 2011

Overlooks in one of the key areas of this quality neighborhood as Oberkassel.The building as it's own "Alter Bahnhof" due to it's unique architecture and style attracts you to get it.The interior is as classic German with the middle of the restaurant a beer distillery.
Outside there is also a very tidy and well decorated,with plenty colorful plants, garden when you can also enjoy your stay mainly in the summer period.
In terms of food and drink:
I really do not exaggerate but "Gulash Brau" is definitely ranked among the best 5 beers I have ever drunk in my life! It is very difficult to say,I don't want more or I don't like it!
For food always check the "Tages Karte" and everything recommended by the waiter but salad with turkey,saurbraten and Haxen are always among the best choices!
