A small educational holiday with many tasty culinary facts follows to stimulate your appetite. During the guided tour around Chlodwigplatz you will learn a lot about the old building sites as well as the entire range of the current scene pubs. Then it's time for the first starter.

Afterward, you will listen to the entertaining and exciting stories of the city guide about Cologne's curiosities from this part of the city. With so much information the small hunger will be satisfied again with an international gastronomy visit. Continue past cool second-hand shops, comic shops and the Lukas Podolski Mangal Döner (which we only see from the outside). At the Severinstor it is time to visit a Cologne highlight, a traditional brewery. Make a stop here for a typical Cologne snack!

Now you are optimally strengthened for the many further data, facts and insider knowledge, which our city guide can tell including stories of the house Balchem, St. Severin and the wrong Rhine side. During the tour, hear about the advantages and disadvantages of this district and what Südstadt means to the people of Cologne.
