Can’t miss this joint; right by the cathedral. Visited three times, "97. ’02, 07). Selection is limited to the tasty, soft Kolsch. Food was solid; I remember eating wild boar in game season. A classic beer hall.

Lots of people inside.
Great food. Have to say, that Kolsch is far more tasty, when you drink it here. It’s all because of atmosphere around, I guess.

Visited on a Wednesday early afternoon. Large touristical place very close to the train station. Nice interior. Service was ok, but nowhere near friendly. Only one beer available (Früh Kölsch) and it’s probably the worst Kölsch in Cologne so it can’t score high for the selection. We didn’t try the food. Price (1.80 euros / 20 cl) were a bit higher than other Kölsch places in town. Unless you want to try all the Kölsch brewpubs, you can skip this one.

Where all the tourists go to drink kolsch. Very busy. I find kolsch to be pretty bland and Fruh’s is perhaps the blandest. Certainly worth a look but nothing special.

Very big terrasse and indoor which was almost completely full when we got there. Service was a little slow. Pretty much the worst Kölsch in town.

Sat out side and enjoyed the beautiful October sunny afternoon, watching people, and of drinking Kolsch beer. A wonderful experience!

Very busy, noisy, and touristy. Spacious inside with outdoor seating in the shadow of the Kölner Dom. Fast and nonchalant service. Their Früh Kölsch was served in 200ml glasses and tasted alright, however, there are far better Kölsch beers and bars in other parts of the city. Not recommended (visited 22.07.2014).

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.
