Whilst in a very touristy location this is still quite a nice Kölsch bar. Service was extremely attentive and after giving the impression that we may not have actually been tourists but locals it became even better and from our calculations we paid the locals’ Kölsch price and not the inflated tourists’ price. The Kölsch is nice and the decor is too however if you want to escape tourists I would look elsewhere.

Better to have a late lunch than none at all. Fruh am Dom has a very large biergarten in the front, but on a sunny and warm Saturday, all the seats were taken. No problem, we'll just head inside and sit at one of the wooden tables. It's roomy inside, and high ceiling also give that inpression.

Right off the bat, we were given a 200 ml of Fruh Kolsch. Don't expect to find any other beer, as it's the only beer served. Like in Dusseldorf, at Cologne's kolsch houses you are given small glasses of the house beer and are automatically served another one as your glass runs dry until you tell them to stop. Later on we decided on our lunch. I helped myself to a very large serving of boiled pork kunckle, which was so big it could have fed two people. Eike was really enjoying his asparagus soup and nibbling off of Daniella's entree.

One of many good spot in Cologne to hit for a beer in a good atmosphere. Oh yeah, the house beer is pretty good too.

Service is not bad, it's just always busy. Try to get a table on the ground floor if you can as the atmosphere is better. I find lunch to be more fun than dinner. The Fruh is always fresh and flowing - be sure to "abuse" your Cubis as local tradition dictates. Basically, be rude to the waiter in jest as that is the expectation - sometimes they dish out better than they get :-)

The steak tartar is nice and the cheese selections are very nice. There's a lot of traditional German food on the menu. I also reccommend getting a cask for the table if you group is a little bigger - or just thirstier as this is fun to tap the keg, a lot faster for refills, and just fresh as the day is long.

I think this must be most BA's first stop on a Kolsch tour, as this so close to the Hauptbahnhof.

We visited in Summer, so most of the drinkers were outside on the terrace soaking up the sun.

It was the day of the 3rd place play off in the World Cup - Germany vs Uruguay, so atmosphere was light hearted and football focussed!

Service was excellent, very Kobe-like, not much chat, just taking the order and bringing it out.

The kolsch is certainly fresh and of good quality from the wood.

I had the Halven Hahn - A slab of gouda cheese, butter, and a rye roll, with mustard - the classic Koln snack! My drinking buddy had the 3 spiegeleir mit speck, bratkartoffeln und salad. It didnt stand a chance.

Selection is of course Fruh Kolsch, but thats expected, its their pub!

Value is more pricey since close to the Hbf.

Overall, a very enjoyable visit!
