Welcome to the WDR Funkhaus Café! Having undergone recent renovation, the stylish cafe in the heart of Cologne’s city centre has now regained its former splendour. Located near to the Cathedral and just a few minutes away from Cologne Central Station (Hauptbahnhof), we have the pleasure of welcoming and spoiling our guests from all over the world on a daily basis.
For people who enjoy breakfasting, the Funkhaus Café is the perfect place to start the day. When the weather allows, a comfortable seat outdoors with a view of the Cathedral spires is an added joy. At midday, offering a choice of salads, soups and other delicious dishes, the Funkhaus becomes the ideal Restaurant for a light lunch. And, of course, instead or as well as these savoury options - including a wide selection of vegetarian dishes - you can naturally also enjoy our coffeehouse classics and delicious cakes and pastries. In the evenings, the Funkhaus transforms itself into a stylish modern Bar to meet every wish - whether something to eat before or after a concert, a glass of wine to toast a special occasion, or the pleasure of simply sitting at the bar and enjoying a cocktail with friends.
The proximity to the WDR, one of Germany’s major radio and TV broadcasters, is reflected not only in the location, but also in the programme. On a small stage in the guest area, the WDR organizes readings, concerts and discussions or interviews that go out live on radio. To find out more about this, please go to the “Termine” (What’s on) section. So the new Café / Restaurant / Bar also offers the WDR Funkhaus at Wallrafplatz a small new venue. And for special occasions, large monitors can provide a direct link-up to the broadcasting studios.
