Fish Market ( Fischmarkt ) is a great riverfront area of this beautiful city on the River Rhine that I always look forward to visiting on any holiday I take to Cologne.
This square is home to some great pubs,bars, cafe's and restaurants plus you have great views of the magnificent Groß St Martin and the River Rhine, its sandwiched between the Hohenzollern Brucke and Deutzerbrucke and is most definitely well worth checking out if you're in the area or planning a holiday to Cologne.

Small square with views of the impressive bridges that span the river such as Deutzerbrücke, Hohenzollenbrücke and Severinsbrücke. There are pretty coloured buildings and above all there's the amazing architecture of the magnificent Gross St Martin church.

Located on the banks of the Rhine the Fisch Markt is located in the AltStadt.

There are lots of lovely buildings to enjoy as well as bars and cafes to sit and rest in as part of your journey around Cologne.

The old fish market is one of those updated old markets filled with bars, cafes and restaurants. There's several attractions around the Fischmarkt, such as Frankenwerft, the many bridges across the river, the river cruises, or you could just sit by the riverfront and enjoy a drink or meal.

A bit touristy, but a nice walk is right opposite the fish market.

As the name implies, this was the site of the original fish market for Cologne, It is right behind the Gross St. Martin and the water, naturally on the Rhine River, perfect for the fish trade and fish industry. This area is part of the larger area along the Rhine from the Hohenzollern Bridge to the Deutzer Bridge. Along the Rhine, you will find a long promenade dotted with restaurants and bars and cafes all with outdoor seating facing the river. The fish market area with its tall skinny colorful buildings is all part of this gorgeous and inviting area. Great daytime or night. Also the area where river cruise boats dock.

This is a wonderful area to grab a drink, chat, relax on the grass or at a table in a Biergarten, or just stroll around. It gives you great local flavor.

Loved this place and the view of St Martins church and the colourful buildings - it is so picturesque and well worth some time to see when wandering along by the Rhine...
