This was the best place I ever ate in Germany. The atmosphere was outstanding. The food was nearly perfect, and the beer was a classic complement. I had the Schweinehaxe with Knoedel and Red cabbage, and paired it with the Rauchbier straight from the tap. Pure heaven on earth. Try it, you won't be disappointed.

This is one of the oldest brauerei in Bamberg; home of the Franconian biers. Selection is dependent on season however I went here to experience the Rauchbier (smoked beer). My German colleague explained they tap one cask of this bier each day and I watched as the gravity fed pour drained into the stein. Since this was my first experience, the smokey smell of oak wood was evident and the taste resting on my palate was delicious! Food selection was modest and the pork went well with my bier. Aecht Schlenkerla is the real deal! Sadly the Franconian biers are falling to the wayside and I encourage you to do a web-search of these brews. Those who hold on still apply the old ways of doing it right!

Simple to anyone that want to visit a unique place and sample the beer and food, Its a must visit.
Its really depends on your mood and what you expect. Its old and wood every where, every review tell you that.

I go for the company and the history. Not really the beer as smoked beer is not my thing. and lucky you are not forced to drink it if you do no want to. also there lots of better places for the "onion"

Love the beer... Honestly, I love the hallway here, but it is quite cramped. I have spent many an hour enjoying my beer and watching tourists come zooming in and then running out - totally different atmosphere here than the Faessla (which gets fewer tourists). The beer garden is pleasant when it is open. Enjoyed the restaurant, generally good service, but once we came on a shift change and waited a long time for service (almost left). I ordered the (famous) Bamberger Zwiebel (onion) as I had never had one before, while my wife ordered something meaty encased in a dough wrapping (with gravy)(the name of which escapes me). The onion was good, but hers was great (just about the best meal of our trip)! Great bathrooms, as well, freshly refurbished and well kept. Highly recommended! If you visit, come in a small group or alone, order in German, keep quiet and watch the tourists.
