    2010 World Championships in Germany

    have a look at the promotional video clip of the German Icehockey Federation for the 2010 World Championships...

    good clip, imo
    Gott mit dir, du Land der Bayern, deutsche Erde, Vaterland! Über deinen weiten Gauen ruhe seine Segenshand! Er behüte deine Fluren, schirme deiner Städte Bau, und erhalte dir die Farben seines Himmels, weiß und blau!

    Gott mit dir, dem Bayernvolke, dass wir, uns'rer Väter wert, fest in Eintracht und in Frieden bauen uns'res Glückes Herd! Dass mit Deutschlands Bruderstämmen einig uns ein jeder schau und den alten Ruhm bewähre unser Banner, weiß und blau!

    The arena in Cologne is by far the best venue in Germany for an IIHF world championship. You can get there easily with public transport (and with your car, if you can accept some delays in the parking garage), there are several bars, pubs and restaurants closeby and the city center with much more pubs and bars is not far away. One can even walk there from the arena. The other modern arenas in Germany are somewhat away from the city centers and there is not much (i.e. nothing) going on around.

    None of which appreciate you asking for an alt bier. I don't speak German, but even I recognised "p*ss off up the road to Dusseldorf."

    Graham, you were quite lucky:

    Kölsch stands in direct competition to Altbier, ... and ordering the wrong kind in the wrong city has in fact resulted in abuse and even violence in the past, although today a couple of jokes about foreigners is probably all that would result.

    Anyway, I would not expect British to know the difference. The same mishap even happened to the former german chancellor`s (current) wife.

    ... back to topic. Even if you like Altbier so much, you will appreciate the area around the Cologne arena much more than the one in Düsseldorf.
