    ...here's a list of cologne's recordshops: https://paleblueice.com/2017/09/08/a...f-einen-blick/

    ...my personal recommendation:
    eary bird records = THE meeting place for a lot of (young and still young) hiphop heads (located near the city centre)
    https://www.facebook.com/earlybirdcologne

    drake records = not so much hiphop, but the the owner is a very nice music freak (this one is located a little bit outside the city/ in an area where you're normally not going as a tourist)

    dedicated graffiti store = another meeting place for cologne's hip hop crowd

    for hip hop early bird is the best one.
    you can try Parallel Schallplatten if you like discogs prices.
    try nunk music, it's a bit messy but they have all kinds of stuff (2nd hand) https://www.facebook.com/NUNK-MUSIC-166684900092541/
    try this one also they have a few 2nd hand records in the back of the store :

    Early Birds is def a good spot for second Hand hip-hop, very likeable owner who runs the place and also DJs around CGN. Groove Attack is still good for new Releases in Hip-Hop, Funk/Breaks reissues and Electro. Nunk is the next best Thing to "The Thing" from NY, you Need time for this one though. Make sure to grab the Cologne Record Store Map which is usually lying around the Counters of most stores.

    As for Food and drink the Belgische Viertel and Ehrenfeld are good quarters to roam around.
