Set back from the Rhine in the Altstadt, this 17th-century step-gabled inn with a black-and-white timbered façade is a good choice for atmospheric dining—especially if you are interested in trying the traditional dishes of Cologne. How about Himmel und Ād (fried blood sausages with fried onions, mashed potatoes and apple sauce), the Sudhausteller (grilled pork knuckles in brown beer sauce, cabbage and fried potatoes), or Rhenish sauerbraten (braised pork with raisin sauce and potato dumplings)? There are vegetarian dishes as well. No credit cards accepted.
