Another great option is Neumann, a cosy bar on Subbelrather Strasse in the Ehrenfeld neighbourhood. Its huge screen ensures you’ll get a good view of the game, plus fresh Kölsch beer is on tap to lubricate your discussions about the match. The big bar, occasional free table football and the garish wallpaper all contribute towards Neumann’s atmosphere. A long list of specialty drinks and good music mean the bar also stays full after the game – and even on those days when football isn’t being played.
What’s more, to line your stomach in anticipation of celebrating a win or drowning a loss, all you need do is cross the road. In Hemmer, Neumann’s big sister, you’ll find an extensive menu of tasty football-appropriate food.
