This is the archetype of the Bamberg bierstube: The interior made of dark wood, the green tile stove, the beer window, the wooden cask with Rauchbier, the regular’s table, the guests drinking on the stairs or on the street outside the house, the friendly yet a bit sulky staff, the beer garden at the narrow inner court, the hunters trophies on the wall and the decorations made of dried flowers.

Yes. It is all there. And then the rauchbier, served from a large wooden cask. There might be other beers in this style and some of them even better than this one, yet it is the Schenkerla Rauchbier Märzen that the others are measured by.

The beer list is short: Schenkerla Rauchbier Märzen on cask and Schenkerla RauchbierWeizen on bottle. In late autumn, a Rauchbock is also served.

An institution in the world of beer. (828 characters)

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" (412 characters)

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. (886 characters)
