Welcome to the "Herings"




Fischmarkt 9

50667 Köln

Opening Hours

Every Day from 12:00 open

Kitchen from 12:00 throughout

We are closed on Tuesdays

Since 2009 we offer our guests classic German seafood in a casual atmosphere at one of the oldest and most beautiful places in Cologne. Herring in different variations, rollmops and of course our mussels make the “Herings” a popular meeting place for Cologne and tourists from around the world. All dishes are freshly prepared by us, of course are also meat lovers at their expense.
With a fresh Mühlen-Kölsch or a glass of wine, you can
admire the photo chronicle of the long history of our house. Thanks to our homeowners who have provided us with the photos and postcards, and the photographers Hermann and Clärchen Baus from Cologne-Delbrück.
We look forward to welcoming you as our guest in the
“Herings” and hope that you feel at home with us.

Dear guests and friends,

due to the present situation, there are currently some changes that we must comply with.

We ask for your understanding that we will not always have our usual menu in stock in the next few weeks and that our opening times may differ from the usual ones.
