My first altbier experience was a good one - their 1838 is a hopped-up altbier not to be missed! Friendly good service

The interior is a bit dull and makes think of the times when smoke was allowed, but it’s classic. Beer served from the barrels and very good. A special one available by the glass but from 1 liter bottles. Rough rustic German service. Good place.

A classic "Rhenish" beer-hall, not really cozy, but always busy; typical prompt service (by "Köbes"ses), execellent Alt, also available in One-litre swing top bottles. Three times a year they serve there the stronger "Latzen"-Bier.
The pub is situated not very far from the Hauptbahnhof (main railway station), ideal for a last sip on the way back to the Bahnhof.......................
They own a second pub in the Altstadt (Goldener Kessel, Bolkerstrasse), which is smaller and more "bourgeois", but also worth a visit...............

A great old building with great beer. Went in on a Saturday morning in Sept ’07. Everyone else seemed to be an older regular. Enjoyed a couple beers but somehow felt rushed and almost unwanted. Maybe they were just too busy filling liters for take-away. I definitely recommend getting one of those.

Visited for lunch on Saturday March 13, 2010.
Had Eisbein for lunch, very tasty! Both the Alt and the Jung beers were very nice as well. Good service. Not too crowded on a fairly early Saturday.

One of the worst experiences concerning beer. Yes - the regular Alt is good (Top 3 Dusseldorf) but the service is dammn near unforgettable. Whatever you do - Dont ask for their Latzenbier. I had 6 bottles set aside from the Sticke /Latzen event from a few days before but they all of a sudden refused to sell it. I showed them my email confirmation/deal I made with one of their Co-Workers and they freaked. Nearly got kicked out. Go to their tap: Goldener Kessel , instead. Better service and friendlier waitors.

Not easy to review this as it was around opening time (10), so not exactly busy and little atmosphere. Nice beer, not sure I would visit that often if I lived here though.

We had a couple here before hiking into the Altstadt. It was a good thing, because its brother pub in the center was too packed later on. By stopping here first, we got to enjoy those nice beers amid some elbow room. The place is spacious also convenient to several hotels. An oompah band randomly marched through while we were there. Definitely worth a visit, and you can take a peel at the brewing kit in the back.

Stopped in for an Altbier and to get out of the rain. Good service and good Altbier. Typical local fare.

A traditional large German beer hall with a few TVs in the bar area. Service was good as the server came by quite frequently to make sure we had a glass full of Alt. As with the other halls, only an alt available. Price was in line with other beer halls around town.
