  • Beautiful outdoor square, near to the Dom, shopping and the Rhine river. Filled with great small places to eat and drink Koelsch. All have outdoor seating to dine or drink al fresco, weather permitting.
  • Well worth a visit, as are most areas of Cologne. There are a great selection of bars and restaurants around here.
  • Right near the church and the river front..beautiful weather and people around..you can relax here for hours :-)
