This hidden gem has 24 breweries - more than any other city in the world and over 3,000 restaurants, bars and cafes. The local brew, Kolsch is served in cool cylindrical glasses and costs just €1 per glass! Even better, special Kolsch waiters will just keep filling your glass unless you tell them otherwise!
We recommend you check out the bars on Rudolfplatz, in particular Goldfinger for a mix of R&B and pop or Hemingway's for a cocktail and a dance to cool modern tunes. If you have the stamina to stay out till the wee hours try Das Ding, a fab student club with fantastic cheap drink deals, like Whiskey/coke night on a Saturday where this tipple is just €1!
With cheap flights to Düsseldorf (just 35mins from Cologne by train) for only £7.99 and a night out for around £10, whats stopping you??
