Haxenhaus, Restaurant & Wirtshaus in the old town of Cologne

For almost 30 years we have been serving freshly grilled knuckle of pork & homemade bratwurst. Haxenhaus still believes in the time-honoured tradition of landlord hospitality. It is a tradition that spans the centuries. We are specialized in knuckles of all kinds and homemade sausages prepared according to the recipe of the master butcher “Löwe Will”.
