After cooking oil and other groceries had already become more expensive in the supermarket, the rising prices have now also reached Cologne’s outdoor pools. The fries prices are going up.
Anyone who wants to enjoy fries at the outdoor pool in Cologne will have to dig deeper into their pockets in the future. The operators of the gastronomy in the municipal outdoor pools feel compelled to make the popular poolside snack more expensive.
Reason are the increased prices for raw materials and energy. “In the Lentpark you will pay four euros for the small fries and six for the big ones,” says Cologne baths spokeswoman Franziska Graalmann t-online on request – that’s a euro surcharge.

In the Höhenbergbad and in the Ossendorfbad the prices increase by 50 cents to three and four euros respectively. “The tenants are forced to pass on the increased costs for energy and food to the guests,” explains Graalmann. When it comes to pricing, they are completely free and independent of the specifications of the Cologne pools.
At the Calevornia in Leverkusen, however, prices remain stable. Other outdoor pools in the Cologne region were unable to provide any information on changes in French fries prices.
