Young fashioned and trendy neighbourhood right in the city center of Cologne (southern part of Old City).
In contrast to the mostly touristic places around the cathedral you may find different and more authentic places, people and pubs here in the southern part of the old city.
Close around you find plenty of restaurants and pubs. The „Ringe“ (nightlife), Severinstrasse and Chlodwigplatz are just a few walking minutes away. There is a big choice of types and taste of beer and beverages, as well as local and international food.
Different types of grocery stores can be found on Severinstrasse best.
Most relevant parts of downtown and the historic center of the old city can be easily reached by walking. You may follow streets or choose the way on the river Rhine promenade to get to the Cathedral.
The perfect place to stay for people who prefer a more quite atmosphere during nights but also want to stay centrally with easy access to Downtown, KoelnMesse (tradefair) or Lanxess Arena.
I recommend the APP „Around Me“ to check out what´s around you and how to get there.
With the tram stop „Severinstrasse“ just being within a 4 min. walking distance you will feel that you are at the right place to discover Cologne, visit KoelnMesse/Trade Fair, Lanxess Arena or do whatever you like.
You may reach KoelnMesse/Tradefair and Lanxess Arena within 5 minutes. The Airport of Cologne/Bonn may be reached within 20 minutes.
At Severinstrasse lines 3 and 4 are accessible as well as the Busline No. 132 to/from Breslauer Platz (main train station). Please use exit "Tel-Aviv-Strasse".
Within 7 minutes in the opposite direction you may also reach the tram stop „Ulrepforte“ with lines 15 and 16 bringing you to the main train station or southbound even as far as the city of Bonn.
Schedules and connections may be found under VRS.info (de) or within the coequal APP.
