Poor service, a gruff server, overcrowded and a middling kolsch does not make for a pleasant experience. Whatever.

Very nice, traditional place. Cologne had the shit bombed out of it so there are not many places like this. I did not try the food but sat outside and had a few kolsch. The beer is average at best but the ambience is great.

On a warm summers night this place is cracking.
Great atmosphere, great service.
I’ll guarantee you’ll love it.
Do make sure if youve finished drinking place your drip mat on top of your glass otherwise it’ll keep coming.
Not exactly a problem though is it?

Giant, but still typical Brauhaus. The beers come unfortunately from mock-wooden barrels and are not the best, compared to the other Cologne brews. Nevertheless a good place for a quick stop, because the Hauptbahnhof and the Dom are very near.

I think this is one of the best beer places I visited in Koln. The beer was perfect and the roast was great. Service was prompt and I did not have to wait long for my next beer. The beer was so good I am now on a quest to recreate it in my homebrewery!!

As you enter, the Kolsch barrel awaits you sitting on it’s stand, a Köbes standing by for another to show up with his empty crown to fill. 3 Floors with different ambiances. Going downstairs you get to see the Bierkeller, the souvenir stand that sells everything from T-shirts to keg stands and even the actual faucets they use for the kegs. Our waiter was exactly what we expected from a Köbes, not a very chatty guy - he didn’t speak english anyway - but efficient and to the point, so in no time I had a stange filled with the local brew. I certainly did enjoy it, in fact my first one I downed almost immediately, but it wasn’t my favorite in town. Obviously, selection is pretty limited, however my girlfriend did get a glass of wine, although a pretty generic one. Our food was good, fairly large portions and well presented. Prices are higher than everywhere else. But it’s still well worth checking out, and the Beer is good.

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.
