Traditional brewhouse gastronomy or cross-cultural cuisine

We are proud of the unique variety of FRÜH gastronomy. For Cologne residents as for international guests from all over the world, the Brauhaus Früh am Dom is a popular place to experience Cologne's hospitality. In the historic buildings right at the Heinzelmännchenbrunnen (Brownie Fountain), we not only offer traditional brewhouse gastronomy, but also the modern HOF 18 Restaurant for superior tastes and the neighbouring Eden Hotel Früh am Dom. We offer many rooms for your events and celebrations, as well as 4 conference rooms and an exclusive event location over the roofs of Cologne directly overlooking Cologne Cathedral. But we don't only welcome you in the heart of Cologne. We also welcome you to our traditional pubs FRÜH “Em Golde Kappes” and FRÜH “Em Veedel” in the south and north districts of Cologne, as well as at the "Venlo" in the Belgian quarter of Cologne. Our range of services is rounded off by our in-house catering service “cölncuisine”.

Brauhaus Früh am Dom

No Cologne local, nor any visitor, will just pass by the Brauhaus Früh am Dom. The welcoming facade of the brewery, the special atmosphere of the beer garden and the prime location directly in front of Cologne Cathedral are a guarantee for experiencing real Cologne life. One can hardly enjoy a fresh draft of Kölsch in a more pleasant atmosphere! Discover not only the cosiness of the traditional Cologne brewery, but also many historical pictures and furnishings from over 100 years of FRÜH gastronomy history!

HOF 18 Restaurant

Far away from the hustle and bustle and the traditional cuisine at the Brauhaus, the HOF 18 Restaurant on the first floor shows itself in a modern and stylish setting. The culinary delights in the former living quarters of the founding family also are contemporary and multi-cultural. Here, Cologne cuisine is re-interpreted and skilfully combined with influences from all over the world. The peaceful atmosphere is ideal for spending some time with friends and family, or for a business dinner. Enjoy the view of the cathedral, the fine food and fine wines or a freshly tapped glass of Früh Kölsch.

FRÜH “Em Golde Kappes”

It's not only in the centre of Cologne where you can enjoy the traditional Rhineland dishes, a fresh draft of Kölsch and the hospitality of FRÜH gastronomy. Our FRÜH “Em Golde Kappes” pub in Cologne-Nippes is an institution among local Cologne pubs. The traditional pub was opened in 1913 by Nippes publican Matthias Becker. Since then, the pub, which has always been known as “Kneip op d'r Eck” (corner pub), has been an indispensible part of the Nippes gastronomy scene. The restaurant has retained its rustic ambience despite extensive renovations in 2009. Today, the Nippes “natives” and many residents from other Cologne quarters meet there to toast each other with a glass of Kölsch.

FRÜH “Em Veedel”

The gastronomic face of the Severin district is also characterized by the FRÜH “Em Veedel” pub. We have been operating the traditional pub right on Chlodwigplatz, which used to be the pub of the “Brennerei (distillery) A. Hermann”, since 1979. Here we serve traditional Brauhaus cuisine along with a fresh draft of Früh Kölsch. The original rustic ambiance invites you to stay a while for a toast with your friends. Keeping our traditions in mind, we still serve home-made spirits today as in the days of the Hermann distillery.

FRÜH “Venlo“

The Restaurant “Venlo” is FRÜH's address in one of Cologne's hippest quarters, the Belgian quarter, where individualists, creative minds, bloggers, and entrepreneurs come together. Here, you will be met with the warm hospitality which is typical for Cologne combined with a modern atmosphere. Our scrubbed wooden tables and the lead glass windows will remind you of Venlo's big sister: The brewery Früh am Dom. In the back of the restaurant, up to 22 guests can sit down for a meal in a calm setting. The bar tables and the bar counter in the front of the room invite you to stop by for a relaxed chat and a freshly tapped FRÜH Kölsch beer. While the big floor-to-ceiling windows overlooking Venloer Straße make for a beautifully light flooded atmosphere, they can also be opened completely in the summer. This gives you a front row seat to enjoy the view on the hustle and bustle of the Belgian quarter with a coffee or a long drink.
