For individuals and small groups, we offer entertaining and informative brewery tours every day through Cologne’s Old Town. Together with one of our experienced city and brewery guides, you will discover the traditional breweries of the city for two hours.
You will learn everything you need to know about Kölsch, discover the milestones in Cologne’s history and get up close with the Rheinland’s brewery culture.
Cologne not only inspires its visitors with the famous cathedral and the renowned Cologne carnival. The city’s drink, Kölsch, also draws people to the metropolis on the Rhine. On our tour through the large and small breweries, you will become an expert on Kölsch beer culture. Why is there a confessional box in every Cologne brewery? What does Kölsch have in common with champagne and tequila? And what do Jacob’s pilgrims have to do with the brewery culture?
Together, we visit three to four breweries and get to try out our own Kölsch. Visitors and even natives will definitely learn some real Cologne facts about the brewery tradition and the city’s history.
Book today and secure your place on our popular public brewery tour. Mondays to Fridays we start at 19 o’clock and on weekends we meet at 15 & 17 o’clock (Sundays only 17 o’clock) at the Kreuzblume in front of Cologne Cathedral. Since there is sometimes a big crowd, we recommend booking two to three days in advance.
After the tour, we will be happy to give you suggestions for further activities or reserve a table for you in the brewery of your choice – the perfect end to your experience of Kölsch brewing culture!
