Room for flying high
The Bel Etage is at the heart of our venues. With amazing views over the roofs of Cologne you can celebrate in any style you wish and for every occasion. Because of the maisonette like structure with a gallery you even have an extra vaulted room, used as a wedding chamber for your civil wedding or as a playroom for the kids.
The view of the Rhine and the Dome impresses in all weather.
Rhine, as far as the eye can see.
Would you like to celebrate directly next to the Rhine?
With our 30 m long panorama windows all your guests will have the pleasure of views along the Rhine, and enjoy warm summer nights on the river terrace.
After a busy day as the CHOCOLAT Grand Café, the place converts into a fantastic event location for festive celebrations or business events, tailored to your event.
