Gaffel am Dom

Visit the most impressive brewhouse in Cologne!
With the renovation and reopening of our restaurant in spring 2008 we have given back a piece of urban tradition from the “Wilhelmian-Period” to the people of Cologne, as well as to the visitors of the city.

Enjoy the  relaxed brewery culture in cologne. “Gaffel am Dom” is a brewery of typical Rhenish character: Bourgeois, hearty and cozy. Our waitors are positive, cheerful and attentive.

You can feel the sunny cologne spirit everywhere. This is where the metropolitan flair of the European hub of Cologne meets the village-like tranquility of Cologne: Spacious, bright areas with long counters, benches and tables on the one hand, cozy corners and retreats on the other.

We look forward to your visit!
