Gürzenich Cologne

The "good Stube" Cologne

The Gürzenich is a popular and traditional Cologne venue and looks back on a more than 550 years history. It is today after the Town Hall the most important medieval Profanbau of Cologne, and at the same time is the Gürzenich-St.Alban of one of quality most demanding 1950s years-monuments of the city construction ensemble.

In the Ballroom on the top floor were received at Cologne guests of honour, celebrated festivals of emperors, Kings and citizens but Coronation celebrations, Gerichtstage and a general election held. The ground floor of Gürzenich used it as department store. In the 17th century he acts solely as a department store.

The Gürzenich shows today modern architecture both harmonic and deliberately intensive with the Gothic wall of Gürzenich and St. Alban.
