Cuisine, drinking culture and going out — Cologne is casual in so many areas of life, and that’s especially true when it comes to creature comforts. The city’s brewery restaurants naturally have a long tradition in this regard. Cologne’s typical brewery restaurant culture makes it uniquely sociable and unconventional — even outside the Carnival season. Cologne’s vibrant restaurant scene has something to offer for every personality and every taste. It’s energized by more than 1,000 different restaurants, over 100 bars, over 700 pubs and more than ten starred restaurants, as well as several food festivals and happenings. The bills of fare range from vegan to hearty, from home cooking to gourmet dining, and from Kölsch beer to creative cocktails. Taste it — and love it.
