“Great spot, full of atmosphere. Right beside the Old Town Christmas market.”
Reviewed December 1, 2011

Had a great schnitzel here with my husband. Not gourmet food, but a really good experience of a German pub and food. Great atmosphere, in fact it was packed, which is always a good sign ! The waiter walked around with a funny little tray full of small glasses of local beer, that you just took as he walked by and then he would mark your beer mat with a pencil to indicate how many you have had and then you pay on your way out.
Right beside the Old Town Xmas market too, so very handy.

“Nice food, good beer, great location”
Reviewed November 22, 2011

Most of the beer and food in the breweries is pretty much alike. We liked this place, on the Heumarkt square, with good service and atmosphere, a bit off the hard core pub streets.

“Wonderful place that salutes the heros of Cologne.”
Reviewed November 8, 2011

When we sat down we were greeted by a server with little glasses of beer. They have their own beer and for under 2 euro a glass it is a deal.
In the menu there are stories of heros of Cologne and this place is historic mixing the old with a lot of modern flair.
The staff was amazing and offered to show us some of the older parts of the place.
The food was also great. The winner of the table was the pig knuckle. A huge knuckle that was crispy on the outside was an amazing.
Try it for yourself.
