Im Goldenen Kessel - The Schumacher Brewery, Dusseldorf

Im Goldenen Kessel - The Schumacher Brewery, Dusseldorf

Im Goldenen Kessel, or "The Golden Kettle" in English, is a restaurant in Duesseldorf's old town. The former brewery has retained its old-world charm right down to the golden kettle that rests above the entrance. However, it has not retained the actual brewing of beer. Instead, beer is brought to the restaurant and put on tap for patrons to enjoy.

Im Goldenen Kessel has been owned by the Schumacher family for over 100 years. It was purchased by Joh. Matthias Schumacher from Carl Joseph Kurten in 1838. It was taken over by Schumacher's nephew, Ferdinand Schumacher, in 1871. It has been passed down through the generations ever since. The Schumachers also operate the Schumacher Brewery, which is the provider of the beers available at Im Goldenen Kessel.

The building was destroyed in 1942 by air raids but was rebuilt in 1948. It has been renovated and expanded many times over the years. The brewery has continued to innovate its beer while the building has enjoyed success in both brewing and gastronomy.

Im Goldenen Kessel is open from Tuesday through Sunday. Hours vary.
