Em Altertürmche

The welcoming restaurant in the heart of Cologne. Nomen est omen is what the old Latin would say. Altertümchen, because that's exactly what has been built here. In the knights' hall (up to 50 persons) you sit partly on legacies of the Romans. The remains of Roman buildings were found here and integrated into the furnishings. Of course, everything has been archaeologically registered. The fountain is in operation when it rains, it is filled by rainwater. Diverse stove plates and doors, old tiles and the other antiquities (Altertümchen) are waiting to be explored. They have been in the house for generations and must not be removed during renovations.

Ein sehr uriges Lokal mit tollen Wirtsleuten. Mittwochs gibt es selbst gemachte Kartoffelpuffer ab 18:00 Uhr aber nur wenn es nicht so heiß ist. Ohne Anmeldung alle Plätze belegt. Aber auch an anderen Tagen ist die Küche wärmstens zu empfehlen. Ist immer ein Ausflug dorthin wert.
