Name of Olive Oil shop in Cologne?

by Senoritasmile

When I visited Cologne 2 years ago, I remember seeing a wonderful shop where there were many different kinds of empty bottles that you could fill up with different olive oils.

Can anyone tell me what the shop is called and if they have a website?

Thank you

If it is not the mentioned shop you can always try the chain "Vom Fass". They have oils, vinegars and liqueurs which are filled in the bottle you choose or bring into the shop.

Just google and type in "vom fass" plus the city you want.

They are in all major cities and have several outlets in Köln.

Travel Tips for Cologne

When you are there you must go...


When you are there you must go upstairs at 'der Koelner Dom', the cathedral of the city. It´s very easy, more than 500 steps :) The view up there is great, you can see the whole city, the river (der Rhein).
You can also get a boat and travel through the romantic Rhein, and stop in smaller cities, and also more typical ones.

Explore the Other Side of Life

by Eurasian68

Whoever would like to get to know the city in the gay and lesbian sense should seriously consider a guided tour from the Centre of Gay History, who organises such tours in the historical homo-city of Cologne.

Whoever is more inclined for a little shopping, then Ehrenstrasse is exactly what you need. From clothes to decorations to books and sound equipment, everything is here on this street for all price levels. A little more expensive, but somewhat more exclusive is Mittelstrasse between Rudolfplatz and Neumarkt.

Whoever is afraid to take in all this luxury can be warmly rewarded with Cologne's biggest pedestrain zone on the Hohe Strasse, Schildergasse and Breitestrasse. Cologne's longest shopping street extends over many kilometres between the Cathedral and Neumarkt.

CGN Airport

by jayhawk2000

We used the no-frills airline HLX (now TUIfly) to fly in from Manchester. They were building a train station at the airport plus another new terminal, so it was a bus ride up the motorway to either Koln or Bonn.

Before you leave the terminal drop in at the tourist info desk for a city map and the tourist card which gives you lots of discounts and free transportation throughout the region. It started at 9 euro per person for 24 hours.

It's only about 15 minutes by bus from the airport to central Koln and you'll be dropped off outside the huge city centre train station in the shadow of the cathedral.

NEWSFLASH: As of summer 2004, there is a train station at the airport offering direct services into Koln and around the country.

A taste of German food

by Cristian_Uluru about Klaaf Bistro & Restaurant

Klaaf Bistro & Restaurant is located in the square in front of Eigelsteintor. During the summer season you can seat on the terrace in front of the Medieval town gate and relax yourself with a good beer, or a good cappuccino or with a delicious plate of food. Good music and a friendly staff allow to pass a great evening. My experience in Klaaf Bistro & Restaurant was very positive. Here you can taste German and International dishes with a touch of Italian style. As starter I can suggest to taste one of the best tomato soup I ever eaten (with mais and fresh basil). As main dish I can suggest to taste a delicious Argentinisches Rumpsteak (ca.200 g) served with Kruterbutter, stove potato with sour cream and salad. Another good dish was Penne mit Hähnchenstreifen: Penne (pasta) with chicken strips in spicy tomato.
As drink I suggest to try the Kolsch Beer.

House #4711

by Peterodl

#4711 started making cologne in the late 1700's and made it 80 proof. you were meant to both drink it and wear it. Nowadays, you just wear it.
A fountain in the lobby continuously pours free samples of cologne to try.
The staff are helpful and friendly and there is a free display on the 2nd floor giving a history of the store.
