Päffgen Brewery Cologne is famous for Kölsch beer, which can be found all over the city in bars, restaurants, and cafés. It’s particular pleasing, however, to drink the lager in a local brewery such as this one near Friesenplatz, which has been serving the golden suds in traditional 0.2-liter glasses since 1884. Take a seat in the main beer hall or covered garden—both are always lively—where you can pair your brews with hearty fare such as sausages, pork knuckles, and roast chicken. Be warned: Your waiter will continue pouring beer if they find your glass empty—unless you put your coaster on top.
