Updated: 15 September 2017
Ice cream lovers will be pleased to know that Cologne is dotted with places that will help appease your gelato cravings. On the menu are not only all-time classics, but also vegan sorbets and bold, exotic flavours. Here are eight of the best ice cream parlours in the city.

Eisfeld

Ice Cream Parlour, Ice Cream, $$$
Save to wishlist

The three owners and ice cream enthusiasts only opened their ice cream parlour a year ago, but it’s already hard to imagine Ehrenfeld without Eisfeld. The girls create flavourful ice creams and fruity vegan sorbets without using any additives. If you’re feeling like something more substantial, take a seat and order one of the fresh waffles with a scoop of your favourite flavour on top.

Bar Schmitz

If you stroll down Aachener Straße on a sunny weekend, you will notice the queue outside Bar Schmitz. People happily wait in line for 15 minutes for a couple of scoops of the innovative ice cream and sorbet flavours. On the menu is caramel fleur de sel, chocolat au lait with salty popcorn, or pear with marzipan sorbet and a lot more. The café uses only organic ingredients, and all their sorbets are vegan.
