Dialects Hotline Rahel learns Kölsch!

What’s a Plüschprumm? And if you order a halve Hahn at a restaurant, what exactly do they serve you? Our first episode of the Dialects Hotline is about Kölsch, the Cologne dialect. Rahel hooks up with Cologne journalist Annika Witzel to learn a few words in Kölsch and find out a little bit about the dialect.
