Die-hard Europeans might find Alteburg a little disconcerting these days – as you walk in, you can’t miss the prominent original London Underground sign on the wall. Although one is quickly distracted from Sloane Square and any nasty Brexit aftertaste this may have triggered by another kind of island at the centre of this colourfully illuminated space: the bar serving a continuous stream of on-tap Kölsch. A generous space for around 170 guests, Alteburg is a prime spot to soak up some real Südstadt atmosphere. This is where Cologne’s cosmopolitans congregate of an evening to chat with neighbours and strike up new friendships.
