Going out in Cologne
The high concentration of pubs in Cologne simply invites you to spend some convivial hours.
Every city has that one, that special flea market that represents the flair and color of the city. It's the same in Cologne. The Cologne Südstadt Flea Market has been drawing the people of Cologne to the parking lot of the Süd sports complex for over 25 years. Here you can literally meet the whole Cologne Südstadt and mingle with the Lück (Cologne for people) in a wonderfully uncomplicated way.
You will also find everything your junk dealer's heart desires. Rarities, second-hand, records, vases, household items, treasures from the mid-century era and much more. With well over 300 vendors, the Südstadt Flea Market is one of the big ones.
Bring plenty of time, a to go-Kölsch and a good mood. The area is spacious, but apart from that, you want to stay. You rarely get more Cologne in one area. Immerse yourself, marvel and enjoy.
And if you just can't get enough, we recommend further visits to Cologne and the many flea markets in the city on the Rhine.
