Hallerndorf (Kreuzberg)

The Kreuzberg is a much beloved series of Bierkellers set in a gorgeous forest setting just west of Forchheim.  This is not to be confused with the Kellerberg, which is actually in Forchheim but to the northeast of the town center.  Though that is also nice, this is truly a Bierkeller paradise and well worth the journey out here, easily reached by public bus.  Hallerndorf is the main town but the bus from Forchheim makes the rounds of all the villages.
The area is compact so it’s easy to get around on foot.  The actual breweries are in various villages but all operate Bierkellers on the Kreuzberg that serve their beers. I’ve not been to the breweries as I’ve only been in the area in summer and often the restaurants attached to the breweries are only open in winter when the kellers are not operating.  Below are the kellers on the actual Kreuzberg. The Brauhaus has their brewery up there now but it was once Brauerei Friedel in Schaid.  The other two have their breweries in Hallendorf, along with small restaurants.
