The Heumarkt is one of the largest squares in Cologne's old town.
It is best known for its fairly high concentration of brewery cafés, where you can enjoy a delicious glass of freshly tapped Kölsch. A good way to get acquainted with the brewery pubs and restaurants.

A Christmas market with attractive iceskating area is set up on the Heumarkt during the Advent period.

Centrally on the square stands thee statue of the Prussian King Frederick William III.

Very nice place. Food was delicious, service was good. They had even a Glohwein which was a bonus on a relatively chilly afternoon. Goulash soup, venison goulash and grilled sausages were very tasty. Sausages in fact were the best I had in Germany this time around. Hightly recommend this place, will not be dissapointed.

A major tourist attraction as the former market square is in the old town and close to all the major tourist attractions in Cologne. The square is pretty much dominated by the equestrian sculpture of Friedrich Wilhelm III in the centre of the square, which by the way is magnificent. Like typical European public squares, there’s an array of restaurants and cafes around the square. The square has a lovely old town feel with its cobbled stones and traditional architecture, but still very touristy!

The square is also very easy to get to as there’s a tram stop and underground station.

It is an open space, a square in old city area. This square is close to Rhine River, less than 200m from the river where most of river cruise trips started at several wharfs. The Deutzer Bridge is also at walking distance from this square. Most of the stories and reviews of this place are related to Christmas time. Yes, this square is well known for its Christmas festive, when plenty of attractions and food stalls are performed during this time. On the other time, at normal days outside of Christmas seasons, this place just an open space bordered by rows of mixed old and newer buildings. What surprise us here was there are many choices of restaurants here, Pizza, Steak, Mexican, Thai, Argentinian, Italian, Lebanese, Bierhaus, Ice Cream parlour, and cafes, as well as German restaurants. In the mid of the square, standing tall the Equestrian Statue of Friedrich Wilhelm III. The closest Metro Station is Heumarkt U-Bahn Station for Line 1, 7 and 9. Nice place to stroll while exploring old city centre area. From this place to Central Train Station and the well-known Cologne Cathedral, just 1 km walking distance, easy.

Heumarkt, whether you're sitting on the terrasse of a coffee bar or by yourself on a stone (a few meters away from the Rhein) is a nice place to relax and admire the beauty of the view (the old colored houses). Also there's always free wifi there!

This area is very good to walk around especially when the sky is clear.
I can see locals also used this place to enjoy the sun.
I believe during summer this place will be full of people having sunbath.
The best spot will be the area along the river itself.
The ambiance is so alive because you can see many local activities going on this place.
Restaurant or bar options also are quite many, so it is a great place to hang out indeed.

Wine tasting in Heumarkt, Cologne, Germany! An absolute must visit! It begins May 18th for 2 weeks! German wineries in the region come and sell their wines for 350euros for 4 oz or by the bottle! Test them all ! Food vendors available and tables to share with other locals and travelers! So much fun!

A really lovely relaxed atmosphere with all the goodies and food and drinks (especially the gluwein). you pay a small deposit for the mugs when you get a gluwein but they are really efficient at getting it back to you when you hand it in. lots of lovely food with all the sausages you can think of, chips, pastries, waffles, mushrooms and more. friendly and the prices were very reasonable - not nearly as much as I thought. The ice rink was great fun for my daughter. It was better for me during the day as it got very busy late at night. loses at 10pm.
