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 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...More
