Nuremberg Sausages in Cologne, Germany
Nuremberg sausages with sauerkraut and mashed potatoes in Cologne, Germany
It was a rainy spring day, but not bad enough to keep us inside. Afterall we were here to see everything, and walking on the streets of Cologne (Köln) is nice every time of the year. At lunch hour we happened to pass by this specific colorful German restaurant, not far from the boardwalk along the Rhine River.
- They were serving Nuremberg sausages, which became one of my favorite meals since I first had them in Nuremberg (Nürnberg).
I was attracted by the reddish wooden chairs and tables and the large inviting open windows, traditionally decorated with red Geranium flowers, and of course by the menu… 🙂
I could actually see trough the window and admire how creatively the silverware and napkins were arranged inside the beer mugs – in Germany you cannot use one without the other… 😉 You could, but it would be a shame not to taste the delicious world renowned beer along with traditional German food.
… and if you are curious, this is how this casual restaurant looks like, in between the pick hours
- As a vegetarian, my husband had his beer with a traditional German pretzel (also called Bretzle), sprinkled with some grains of salt.
