The Belgian Quarter

Cologne's Best Spot

Restaurants, Bars, Clubs, Boutique-Shopping and so much more; “Das Belgische” is the heart of the city for many Cologne residents.


“Das Belgische” (The Belgian) has been the liveliest neighborhood in the city for years. Boutique shops from second-hand to fair trade and great restaurants for every budget and taste are just as much at home here as many of Cologne’s best bars and cafés. Galleries, free theatres and lots of cultural spots round off the huge offer. For Cologne residents, the district is therefore not the secret centre of the city for nothing. This is where you go out, shop and spend your summer evenings on one of the numerous outdoor terraces and above all away from the tourist miles of Cologne’s old town.

You can find out which events take place in Cologne on this day on the Cologne Stadtrevue website. But there are also almost daily concerts with local and international artists, readings, shows and much more in the flat-sharing community. You can find an overview on our events page. Of course, our reception team will always be happy to advise you with the best and most up-to-date tips.

From Cologne Central Station (HBF) and Köln/Deutz

Generally our guests arrive at Cologne’s central station or at Köln/Deutz with the ‘Deutsche Bahn’ (EN: German Train). From there you can either walk (about 25 minutes) take the subway (about 15 minutes & 1,90 per person) or take a cab, which costs about €10-12 depending on the time of day and traffic. From the central station: Take the line 5 in the direction of ‘Ossendorf’ and get off at the second stop (‘Friesenplatz’). Follow the signs to the subway line 15 (in the direction of ‘Ubierring’) and take this line to ‘Rudolfplatz’ (it’s just one stop). From Köln/Deutz: Take the line 1 and get off at ‘Rudolfplatz’. You will see four possible exits, from which you will take the one in the direction of ‘Hohezollernring / Aachener Straße’. Walk past the ‘Steigenberger Hotel’ and into ‘Richard-Wagner-Straße’.

You can find paid parking lots in the garage of the ‘Steinberger Hotel’ for 22€ per 24h (Habsburgerring 9, 50674 Köln – 5 minutes walking distance) or at the garage ‘Car park Friesenplatz’ (Alte Wallgasse 31, 50672 Köln – 10-15 minutes walking distance) for 9€ per 24h. Click here to see a map where to find them.

Even cheaper are some Park’n’Ride spots. You park your car outside the inner city area and then take the metro to our place (Line 1 / Moltkestr.). You can find them here.
