  • 2. Et Kabüffke

    Belly up to the wood bar of this pint-sized Altstadt institution and ask for an ice-cold shot of Dusseldorf’s famous ruby-red liqueur, Killepitsch. Or do as the locals do and order one through the tiny bar window, then sip it al fresco standing around the high outdoor tables.

  • 5. HOLY CRAFT Beer Bar

The less formal Automatenspiel (slots) in the neighboring Kolonnade is open from noon to 4 am. To enter either, you must be at least 18 (bring your passport).

  • 9. Stadtgarten


    In summer, head straight for the Stadtgarten and sit in the biergarten for some good outdoor Gemütlichkeit (coziness). At other times of the year it's still worth a visit for its excellent jazz club. Stadtgarten also runs a beer garden with cheap, tasty eats in the shaded Rathenauplatz park, by Cologne's synagogue.

    Venloerstr. 40, Cologne, North Rhine-Westphalia, 50672, Germany
