Old, dark basement that feels like you’re entering history. A nice setup. Obviously being so close to the cathedral, the patrons were mostly a bunch of tourists (so was I). The Kölsch is frankly thinner and less tasty than most, but being right by the Hoptbanhof, you may want to stop by anyway.

Visited this place some time ago with Alexander and had a very nice time here. Service was okay und der Stimmung war besondere gut. Locals and foreigners talked nice together and all in all very recomendable. Will never forget this place. Got the Früh-glace, 20 cl, for a good price as a souvenir.

The best kolsch in Koln. along with Mahzmulle. Yes it is touristy and very smoky, but quite friendly and it was a wonderful atmosphere in the maze of rooms. Still waiting for the waiter to give me my change!

Tons of tourists, bad waiters. Pretty much the tourist trap of Köln. Sampled some Früh am Dom Kölsch here.

’Early for church’, odd name for a pub but suiting. This is just shy of the world famous Kölner Dom. Without so many clothing stores in between you could toast that massive, majestic and haunting Gothic structure literally anytime of day. Enjoyed wurst und anstachehlt mit Kölsch (-sausage and egg with beer-) ahh, for breakfast. 9:30am, most backpackers are peeled out in bed at this hour but, here I was, early to church?, early to drunk! This Brauhaus is too clean, it is cut to fit the traffic with the lovely toiling dwarf’s water sculpture out front and chocolate factory next door. The beer vom fass is not the greatest of the many Kölschbrau’s, but it is refreshing. Inside it is immaculate, but a warren of boroughs makes it weave back in from the pale facade and lowly doorway with which it presents itself. Certainly popular, no orange juice here, I had just swigged my last mouthful to be replaced. A quarter to ten in the morning, another tray of Kölsch to the table beside us. Ohh, sweet as. Found heaven amongst the breakfast menu!!!! A lovely stop off.

The interior of this building is so neat. Down a few flights of stairs and through a few oddly shaped rooms you arrive at the grotto bar, as I was calling it. Looks like you’re sitting inside a cave or a bomb shelter, but there’s a nice big flashy bar next to you, serving the Fruh Kolsch out of a barrel. Waitresses were nice (and cute), and the atmosphere was jovial. Here’s a tip: don’t use the pay toilet downstairs, just go back to the front door and go upstairs and use the one near the dining area.

Tons of tourists, bad waiters, alright food, good koelsch. Pretty much the tourist trap of Koeln Brauhauses it seemed to me. The best part was the people watching and business of the area.

Ooh, forgot to rate this place. Have been here three times, including for bfast. Interesting layout, they jam a lot of different rooms into a vertical, winding space, yet the main hall is a cavern - rightly so, for a beer hall. Wood everywhere, lots of dark mixed with light, old atmosphere, snarky service, and even a touch of hunting lodge aesthetic. Rightly an experience, and one of the reasons the drinking culture in Cologne is famous.

I must’ve drank about 90,000 1/2 liter bottles of Früh Kölsch between late 1999 and early 2002 ... and I lived right down the hill from the Bitburger brewery. This was one of my favorite brews. Unfortunately, the tap room right in the center of the crowds in Köln is always super crowded. But you gotta go if in town.

Great place to grab a Kölsch after climbing the 509 steps of the Dom. Smart-ass waiters, good beer, and great people-watching opportunity. Souvenirs, food. Went both days while in the city.
