The pen-ultimate tourist kölsch bar with a view on the cathedral. Service is slow, the place is constantly busy and the kölsch is pretty crappy. Skip it.

Perfecte locatie voor een avond goed eten en bier drinken. Helaas wat rumoerig en druk omdat het toeristische gehalte hoog is.

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. One of the better looking interiors though. I wanted to wave my hand to attract the attention, but the Kobes just nodded and brought 2 Kolsch, although we didnt both want Kolsch. Silly german traditions.

Classic Kölsch Brewpub. Big and crowded but good atmosphere.

Great brewpub with lots of tucked-away rooms to enjoy many a glass of kölsch. Food was great, and service was good, even though the place was packed. Köbes ran here and there, refilling glasses faster than (anybody else) could drink :).

We visited Früh am Dom on our way back to our hotel. This is another huge sprawling place but with acres of wood and original historocal features throughout, despite the wonderful weather (it was wall to wall sunshine) we sat inside just to get a feel for this place, and sat by a huge wonderfully tiled fireplace. This place is close to both the station and the cathedral both of which you cannot miss, so you shouldn’t muss this either. The beer ’Kolsch’ is from Früh, service good if a little less friendly, and overall you got the feeling that this really was a less personal experience and that the place was ticking over on autopilot. Fine but much better to be found around these parts.

Large touristy traditional Kolsch bar with beer garden on square opposite cathedral. Fast but unfriendly service. Only 1 beer available. Not a great place.

Whilst in a very touristy location this is still quite a nice Kölsch bar. Service was extremely attentive and after giving the impression that we may not have actually been tourists but locals it became even better and from our calculations we paid the locals’ Kölsch price and not the inflated tourists’ price.
The Kölsch is nice and the decor is too however if you want to escape tourists I would look elsewhere.

Visited twice, once in summer 2009 with family and again in September 2012 with chinoskillzian and womencantsail.
This is right across the way from the cathedral (hence the name am Dom). It’s a very popular place but it’s also very nice. As mentioned the building is in a great spot, where you can get a view of the cathedral as you drink a beer and if you want, talk with the other patrons as you’ll undoubtedly be sharing a table with people that you don’t know. Both visits saw nice weather but on the first I had good service where as on the second one the service was bad. That’s what you get for paying your servers better by rolling the tip into the bill. If you’re young and not dressed in expensive clothes they’ll treat you like crap. Also, kolsch prices are higher than alt prices despite being served in a smaller glass. Even if you get a crappy server go check out the inside of the building, it’s neat.
