On the first weekend of September 2000 we had our trip to Cologne to meet the "Kölner Bartmänner" (Cologne Bears). Their welcome was typical of all the bears of Cologne: cordial, warm, bearish.

On the first evening we visited the bear bars "Cox" (former "Römerstuben") and "Zipps". Also the bar "Hands" (former "Platzjabbeck") with its well known "adventure area" was very impressive: hairy, bearded and bearish guys everywhere.
