We popped in for a look and ended up staying for hours. Despite what others have said, we found our waiter charming, friendly, funny and highly efficient. The Kolsch is deliciously fresh and keeps on coming. the building like a museum and the clientele mixed...More

I only discovered the place recently although I've been living in Cologne for over a year now. The reason why I could really recommend this place is that it's an original "kolsch" Brauhaus in the city centre, but way less touristy as the more famous...More
