Cool place to relax after a long day. A place to chill and have few drinks while watching the majestic beauty of the Cathedral. Good cocktails and cold beer, the only thing needed on a hot summer.

Located literally under the train station, Wartesaal (the Waiting Room) is very central and convenient. Unfortunately, even though the restaurant was half full, at best, our waitress seemed preoccupied with other matters. She was short with the guests and tried to hurry ordering and eating....More
