Full description

Discover the Cologne beer scene during this guided walking tour of the Old Town in Cologne. Stop at 3 breweries to sample a selection of the city's signature brew, Kölsch beer. Admire the sights in the old town as you walk through narrow alleyway and down cobbled streets.

Meet your guide at the centrally-located meeting point at Heinzelmännchenbrunnen which is a 19th-century fountain and sculptures depicting a legend concerning gnomes. Make your way through rows of traditional houses and catch romantic glimpses of the imposing Cologne Cathedral.

Stop at each brewery and listen as you guide takes you back in time with vivid stories while you enjoy a refreshing glass of fresh Kölsch beer. Hear about the special features of this drink and its history. 

Let your host take you to breweries like Früh am Dom, Sion, Peters, Bierhaus in der Salzgasse, Pfaffenbräu, Sünner im Walfisch, Dom im Stapelhaus, or Päffgen in the Delfter Haus. End your tour near the vibrantly colored buildings in Heumarkt.

Very very nice guide. Interesting stories about Cologne and the Kölsch beer told in wonderful Cologne charm. Absolutely worth seeing, hearing and tasting, because you have to try the 3 Kölsch.
