Definitely an essential stop in Cologne. Pretty quintessential kolsch place.

Large and touristy. Not the best Kolsch is being served - but fresh. Professional and touristy.

Der Pflichtbesuch für Touristen. Wer nach Köln kommt muss im Früh am Dom gewesen sein. Gutes Essen, Früh Kölsch unfreundliche und überfordert wirkende Köbese in mehr oder weniger gemütlichem Ambiente. Wers braucht...

A nice stop in Cologne, very close to the cathedral and Roman-German museum. They serve one beer, straight from wooden kegs, and it is quite good. The food was some of the best we had in Germany. Service was better than most other places.

I prefer Fruh kolsch to Paffgen. I know it’s sacreligious to say this but I just do. I prefer to drink Fruh kolsch in their other pub though. Fruh en Veedel in Chlodwigplatz. Far better place. No non spending Italian and Japanese tourists frequent this one.

Got seated down in the cellar, which is all old stonework. For how little beer they serve you at a time, the service could be quicker. At least we were with a German braumeister so he knew what he was doing and we got taken care of. I only got to try a couple Kölsch beers while in town but this was quite good. Easy to put down a half-dozen glasses in a short time and then go wander around the cathedral.

So the suit next to me drank enough to completely cover every inch of his table with empty glasses, then he went back to the office. This is a one beer bar, a good example of the style.

Great terrace setting overlooking a fountain. Service was uninterested, which is common for touristy places. Food was bland as well... At least the Kölsch was pretty good; not a standout in Köln, mind you, but still better than expected for this establishment. I wouldn’t make this a priority when visiting Cologne (Malzmühle and Päffgen would be tmy top 2), but it makes for an easy stop near the Dom.

Great big bierhall with extremely professional staff running fast to serve everybody. The Früh fresh from the barrel was good and so was the food.

Even though I wouldn’t rate Fruh in the same category of Pfaffen or Paffgen, it’s still very enjoyable. How can you not like a place where the Kobes bring glass after glass of kolsch until you stop them by putting your coaster on top of your glass? There’s a large landing area on the stairs between the street level and cellar level that is called the "swimming pool" because, as you look down on it from above, it appears to be a never ending mosh pit of humanity. The snob in me prefers Paffgen or Pfaffen, but the kid in me loves Fruh.
