You love having a beer in a cosy and familial atmosphere, small and tiny pubs, where you can still smell the smoke from hundreds of parties from the last years? Then check out the Heimathirsch in Cologne-Nippes, where you can find all this.
A translation of the name is not really possible, as the primordial German word “Heimat” is part of it. “Home deer” is the literal meaning…
It’s the only place in Nippes where you can have a drink after 23:00…and it’s really worth a visit! The mixture of the friendly staff and the relaxed atmosphere (including shabby-looking furniture) makes it one of my favourite places in the neighbourhood.
The drinks menu is short, but excellent!
There are (jazz-) concerts, comedy shows and readings regularly. At the weekends there are (rock-) parties. See the homepage for more details. And of course the Heimathirsch is the right place to go to during carnival!
So what are you waiting for? Go and see the deer!
