Nice spot in nice park in Cologne. We were 6 friends and it was such a nice day (wheater) so want to drink some kolsch in the park. This biergarten is really recommended. Right next to the water, relaxed atmosphere.

This establishment is open on warm days with fair to nice weather. It is a self serve beergarden meaning the personell will offer you drinks and bring them to the Table (cash only) however the food is ordered seperately. It amidst the Volksgarten Park which has playgrounds paths and ist used by locals for grilling.

Pretty much everything you'd expect to find in a city park. Trees, a little lake, beer. Because of the lake the center is a little bit below the edges, so it cuts off some noise and blocks the view, so it feels more private and green. And it's free!

This place is in a park, on a lake. Beer and the atmosphere were great. Prices seemed reasonable. We went at dusk, and it was a nice place to spend the evening. It may also be a little far depending where you stay, but there was a public transit stop near the park.

Lovely open air restaurant in the middle of a beautiful park and next to a tiny lake which offers boating. Just love the ambience in this place! Sit on your table and enjoy the pretty green view around you. The food is nice too at reasonable prices.

A great place for an evening walk or to sit with friends. Small park for children and lots of people about playing frisbee, football etc. Dogs welcome. Bar/cafe was open although we didn't visit on this occasion. A good find only a 30 minute walk from the city centre.

This was really nice on a sunny summer evening and the service was quick. It had more of a bar feel than a restaurant, and was filled with people of all ages. All of the food is listed on boards above the bar - this proved slightly tricky for us as our German is poor...

My other half was a little dubious when I said I wanted to take the tram out of town to the beer garden but as soon as we were there he quickly realised the attraction! The beer garden is situated in the middle of a beautiful park surrounded by greenery and lovely and clean, it's on the lake and you... More

My wife and I were taken here by her aunt, uncle and their family. It's an excellent location just by a little lake. The food was savory and yummy while the Kolsch from Hellers kept coming (where can I get a good Kolsch like that in Vancouver). Service is straightforward and prompt. For families, if you want to keep your... More

Looking for a park for the kids, we ended up here. There's a boating lake which kept the children amused while the grown-ups enjoyed a beer or two. Seemed popular with locals and visitors, many eating vast bowls of chips! The Heller's Kölsch is one of my favourites and they do a really refreshing Rhabarberweisse (rhubarb-flavoured beer). Ended up spending... More
