The ‘Frühschoppen-Kölsch’ Tour is offered by Cologne Tourism and invites visitors to the city as well as local residents to enjoy an entertaining walking tour through the city. The local way of life includes much more than the famous ‘Kölsch’ beer, of course. In a city where many convents and institutes were located, well-heeled citizens lived and many pilgrims came to visit, the demand for ‘Kolsch’ was, understandably, great. But, the true meaning of what it is like to have a freshly tapped Kölsch in front of you is best conveyed through personal experience, rather than explanation. And whilst you are enjoying the experience, don’t forget to try the local specialties of ‘Himmel und Ääd’ (Heaven and Earth) or ‘Cologne Caviar’!
