The walls around Alte Burg are transformed into a terrace in summer time. A lively local hotspot not to be missed!

General festivities quarter

Located in Südstadt near the Rhine, Alte Burg is the site of numerous festive events. The Cologne carnival committees, wedding and birthday planners are queuing at the gates. The impressive surface area of the place, its open air space and especially its relatively isolated location offering enormous freedom for setting things up – and noise levels!

Sweet summer nights


When the good weather arrives, Alte Burg opens the doors of its courtyard to the public. The space is then shared between the guests in the two halls and the Biergarten, accessible to all. People come here for a drink, a bite to eat, to make small talk, if possible getting to know their neighbours at the table. A friendly atmosphere typical of Cologne, favoured by a varied crowd.

Terrace opening hours:
Monday to Friday: 16:00-midnight
Saturday: 14:00-midnight
Sunday: 12:00-midnight
Kitchen open until 22:00
Coralie, 31 JOURNALIST BY DAY

I'm a translator and editor for several publications and I love the hidden side of the city, its secret gardens, its discrete gourmet restaurants and its new, high-design spots. Outings with my friends end late at night. My little extra: a dynamic, fun and really trendy Cologne!
