This place was slightly more crowded than all other Kölsch brewpubs I visited that August noon. Still, service was good and it was quite quiet and cosy. The Köbes seemed a little annoyed when he wanted re-fill my glass after the first beer and I said no (I had too many other beers to drink that day). Still, the Kölsch is very good and one of the best ones.

Typical german Kolsch bar: loads of wooden tables, small wooden seats. One of the better Kolsch available. Dont order anything but beer here, cause the Kobes will be rude. We had to leave a table inside, as we didnt want to eat anything, although there were hardly any people inside. Silly and stupid.

Small touristy traditional Kolsch house with pretty stained glass windows. Further away from cathedral therefore quieter. 3 brewed beers on tap. Satisfactory service.

Nice looking place near the Weihnachtsmarkt (in Winter of course). Very friendly who even had some time to talk to us which is rather rare in Köln. Tried their Bock which was pretty OK although I’m not a Heller Bock fan. The food was pretty good, certainly for these prices.

Not the most fantastic ambiance but for Germany standard ok. Friendly staff though. Same goes for the selection: small but good beers. And it continues in the food: cheap but decent.

Lovely place & the outside looks pretty to boot. The inside is full of interesting decorations, lots of dark wood, cosy atmosphere and something essentially German (in a great way).They were a bit packed since were looking only to drink, they guided us to some tables upfront where we could stand and drink which was fine for me. Service was very fast & good, clearly speedier than the service we encountered anywhere else in centre Cologne. They had two beers available, I think if I didn’t specifically ask for options, I would have gotten only Kölsch but that is just how they roll in Cologne so that is fine. Both beers were very interesting, good & unique. It was neat to get half a litre of Heller Bock after doing only small Kölsch glasses prior to coming here. My favourite easily of the Kölsch places we hit in Cologne unless if you count Braustelle a Kölsch place which I do not.

This was the rudest and most unpleasant stop on our tour, and the beer was not so good either. I would give it a miss given how many other nicer spots there are..

Visited in July 2009 and again September 2012.

In 2009 we spent about 2 minutes here. We were walking through the old town and trying some kolsch beers as well as site seeing. We walked in here around 4pm and looked for an open table. A few seconds later someone came by to tell us that we couldn’t stay here unless we wanted to eat as well. We said we just wanted a beer and the guy got rude and demanded that we make room for dining customers. There were plenty of open tables. Whatever. Sroll vorbei.

2012: This was one of the very early stops of the day. In fact this may have been the first. We got the same table that I was trying to get on my first visit. This time however, since it was still before lunch time, we got service and they were even friendly. They also had several beers that were not a kolsch as well and they weren’t as upset that we tried to order a non-kolsch as the people were in Dusseldorf. My first experience left a bad taste in my mouth but the second was pleasant.

Hard to rate selection. They had a Weissbier along with their Kolsch when I went. Nice atmosphere, a nice tasting Kolsch, plus a weizen and bock, rare in these parts. A must stop in Cologne.

Inside looks cozy and typically decored, but we sat outside in the small biergarten. WHile the front looks (is?) old, the back place doesn’t. Not a problem though. Speedy service, almost ’American’ even. The Kolsch is not the best but drinks well. The food is, well, weird. Tasty ingredients but odd or een bizarre compbinations. Fruit everywhere and quite salty and creamy. The special mushrooms were great though - yeah a bit mixed feelings. Not the cheapest place eather but okay. I’d suggest stopping for a glass (which isn’t kept on your coaster, here) but then continue your journey. No payment with cards here, only cash! And you have to pay for the toilets. :(
