The Excelsior Hotel Ernst and the Cologne Philharmonic Hall, as social venues in Cologne, are affiliated with each other for many years. They pursue the common goal to offer unforgettable memories to their guests. Expand the musical enjoyment of your concert visit with a culinary note during the new Präludium Dinner at the Excelsior Hotel Ernst. Four thematically matched components (starter, soup, main course and dessert) will be served in a box at the same time before the concert in order to get you in the right mood. You have plenty of time to enjoy these delicacies in anticipation of the concert while sitting in the exclusive atmosphere of the hotels wintergarden or on the lobby lounge.
