Full description
If you are you looking for a fun way to explore the beautiful city and history of Cologne, this renowned brewery tour is a great choice. On this tour, the guides have the freedom to choose which breweries to take you to. This allows them to make decisions based on the group dynamic, ensuring that everyone is entertained and satisfied. If you'd like an even more personalized experience, select the option with a private guide. The 2-hour tour begins near the cathedral's grand entrance by the Kreuzblumen monument. After a couple of fun facts about the cathedral and the Kreuzblume, you start the thirst-quenching journey to three different breweries, where you will taste three delicious local beers to find the one that best suits you. You will not only learn a little bit about the breweries and the local brewing culture, but most importantly, you will taste the result of hundreds of years of brewing experience. The tour covers some of the most traditional breweries Cologne has to offer, such as the 700 year-old Brauhaus Sion, as well as younger breweries such, as Früh am Dom, Cologne's largest brewery.

    We recommend. Our guide has led us with a lot of knowledge and a very sympathetic way through the Cologne breweries and the old town of Cologne. The Kölsch was delicious. I would particularly like to mention that the guide has managed to bring us the "Cologne lifestyle" close. Thank you very much and see you next time

    Fun way to get to know the Kölsch beer culture.

    Max did a good job as a tour guide. He knows a lot about the breweries. We've visited three. It is fun to more about the establishments and the Kölsch beer culture. I would recommend this tour, although 29 euros is quite a lot of money, to be honest. We've spent 21 euro 50, which is reasonable in my opinion.

    Weekend trip with friends. It was a cool group, totally relaxed and a nice togetherness. The guide responds to requests and briefly tells you interesting information about Kölsch and Cologne.
