The Lichtung café-culture offers a welcoming counter and comfortable sofas. In general, loans to current exhibitions appear on the walls and this small area is the stage where legendary concerts have been heard. Here, there are also lectures, cabaret shows and all sorts of festivities.

A refuge for city dwellers who know what living is all about

It is appropriate that Michael Kaffei and Michael Steinrücke, the owners, have named their café "Lichtung" (clearing). This is a culture café that doesn't shout at you: "Here it is!" but, on the contrary, asks to be discovered by its public. An encouraging alternative for all those who are lost in the cultural jungle of the big city. One obvious benefit: the space is designed to give you the impression of entering into the artists' family circle. Add to this a good coffee, a glass of wine, or a bottle of Kölsch at fair prices and you have all the ingredients for a pleasant excursion to La Clairière.

I've always loved Cologne. The city is industrial and romantic at the same time. I love my city for its galleries, classical concerts and elegant restaurants and its traditional and very trendy bars! My little extra: I love words, the arts and literature!
