Why locals love it
This little oasis surrounded by some of the most beautiful houses from historic Cologne is the perfect place to escape to on a busy summer day or night. The beautiful surroundings, lake with paddle boats and biergarten make this a perfect place to spend the afternoon. Even in the colder months, the park keeps its beauty.

If you've had enough of busy city life, take a little walk through Volksgarten for a little piece and quiet. A good connector between Barbarossa Platz and the bustling south of the city, this gem holds everything you need for a relaxing afternoon, be it a beer next to the lake, a walk around the old fort, or just a relaxed picnic.
Volksgarten is at its best during summer, so grab a one use barbecue and act like a German.
