Culinary pleasures The city has a restaurant for every taste. Lovers of haute cuisine, for example, would not want to miss the two Miche- lin star-awarded restaurant Le Moisson- nier at Krefelder Straße 25, which serves excellent internationally influ- enced French cuisine. For those of you who prefer Mediterranean, Greek restaurant Plomari at Sülzgürtel 96 in- dulges with its delightful variety of mezedes—small hot and cold dishes of many different kinds. What makes this restaurant famous beyond the city bor- ders, however, is its excellent list of Greek wines. For light meals, the Funkhaus on the Wallrafplatz near the cathedral is the place to go. In the his- toric surroundings of this stylish cafe, patrons can end the day with a freshly AD mixed cocktail or one of its coffee spe- cialities. A review of Cologne’s culinary offer- ings would not be complete without men- tioning the numerous traditional restau- rants, including the Bierhaus en d’r Salz- gass at Salzgasse 5–7, which serves a Kölsche menu and speciality Kölsch beer. Frequented by locals and tourists alike is also the Weinhaus Vogel at Eigel- stein 74, where guests can enjoy excel- lent regional food and experience life in the city. Cologne in the day and at night Among the most famous of the city landmarks is the Cologne Cathedral, which is more than 700 years old. The second-tallest sacral building in Ger- many, it was declared a UNESCO World Heritage Site in 1996 and attracts flocks of visitors from around the world each year. Besides the impressive architec- tural cathedral, are the Heinzelmän- nchenbrunnen (Gnome fountain), the city hall and the Melaten cemetery, which spans more than 435,000 m2 and has a number of impressive tombs and monuments. The night walk in the Old Town on 24 March offers a different view of Co- logne, bringing the city’s history to life through tales surrounding its many buildings and streets. Several other guided tours, held during the day too, take visitors to famous and less known, but fascinating, areas of the city. Art and exhibitions In 2017, Germany is celebrating the 150th anniversary of Käthe Kollwitz, one of the country’s most famous graphic artists and painters. During the whole week of IDS, the Käthe Kollwitz Museum at Neumarkt 18–24 is showcasing sev- eral of her works in a special exhibition. At the Cologne City Museum at Zeug hausstraße 1, visitors can learn more about the history of the 1,000-year city. In a special exhibition about the Heumarkt, organised in collaboration with the Romano-Germanic Museum, the history of one of Cologne’s largest squares is conveyed. Until 26 March, the Romano-Germanic Museum is also showing over 400 ancient and early me- dieval glass objects in the context of the time in which they were created. Multifaceted theatre IDS visitors will find more cultural of- ferings in Cologne’s theatres. For lovers of the classics, for example, the Metropol Theater at Eifelstraße 33 will be present- ing William Shakespeare’s Twelfth Night, or What You Will on 23 March. On Friday, the Theater der Keller at Kleingedankstraße 6 brings Friedrich Dürrenmatt’s crime novella The Pledge to life on stage. For those who prefer something lighter, comedian Hans-Joachim Heist through his persona Gernot Hassknecht will give his unique take on current pol- itics at the COMEDIA Theater at Vondel- straße 4–8. More venturesome types might be interested in the cross-media adaptation of Michel Houellebecq’s sci- ence fiction novel The Possibility of an Island, which will be shown at the Alte Feuerwache on Melchiorstraße 3 throughout the week. New and enduring There are many concerts taking place during the week of IDS. On Monday eve- ning, for example, trumpeter Till Brön- ner is performing his new album The Good Life at the Cologne Philharmonic Hall at Bischofsgartenstraße 1. Also be- ing held during the week is the annual Fest für Alte Musik, this year titled “Greatest Hits”, which showcases music that has been played for centuries. At the Trinity church at Filzengraben 6, vis- itors can experience the Lutheran canta- tas by Johann Sebastian Bach. The high- light of the festival, however, will be The Magic Flute by Wolfgang Amadeus Mozart, performed at the Balloni halls at Ehrenfeldgürtel 88–92. The role of Papa- geno will be played by Guildo Horn, who quickly rose to international fame by competing for Germany in the 1998 Eu- rovision Song Contest. Contemporary music lovers will enjoy the musical adaption of the film The Bodyguard, be- ing shown at the Musical Dome, right next to the train station. These suggestions cover only some of the options to ensure your stay in one of the most lively, attractive and charm- ing of German cities is most enjoy- able. 7 AD Discover the clinic of your dreams!
