If you want to experience a real beer house this is the place to be. They brew their own beer and serve a variety of foods at very reasonable prices. A real fun place.

Beer in small 0,2 glasses at €1,70. If you are looking for classic German food thats a good place, they have mostly pork dished, classic bratwurst with sauerkraut is also on the menu. Nice rear garden, perfect to enjoy a cold drink in a shadow.

Nice genuine brewery and restaurant, just 200 meters from the Mercure hotel. Cologne's oldest brewery house. Päffgen has 135-year-old ancestry. It was severely destroyed during World War II, but since 1949 you have served Päffgen-Kölsch vom Fass and other beers. For dinner you could go...More
