Checking out Google, we discovered that Cologne’s best pub Lommerzheim, serving the local brew Kölsch, was right behind our hotel. From the moment we arrived we were welcomed with open arms. A man next to us at the bar noticed we were strangers and introduced us to the barman. The barman then pushed us through the crowd and plonked us onto a table which was already occupied by Margreet and Bernd. We became instant friends as like me they loved beers, fast cars and not working.
