Full description
Your guide will meet you at the meeting point and bring you to 4 different traditional beer houses in Cologne's Old Town. In each establishment, you can order a different Kölsch, a local beer brewed in the city. While you rest at the brewhouse, your guide will tell you everything you need to know about Kölsch, Cologne and the local way of life. Throughout the 2-hour tour, your guide will share personal anecdotes as well as interesting facts about this historic city and its unique beer culture.
