Founded in 1533, this is Bamberg’s oldest brewery and an atmospheric one it is, too. Tucked away on a small cobblestone street,  sits this charming old half-timbered brewery with limited outside seating out front but a larger and perhaps even nicer one to the side on the river.  Of course, it’s best in winter as the interior is a true traditional pub with numerous large tiled ovens for warming.

Charming interior & duck breast

The food is excellent though it’s not always exactly the same. We’ve had the best Schäuferla in our lives and though it’s always great, that one was the most amazing. To be fair, we’ve never had a bad meal and we’ve had quite a few different things.

Schnitzel with asparagus & potatoes, Schweinebraten & Sauerbraten

Beer range is larger than most Bamberg breweries with a Bock on at all times. Though the Hellerbocks is good, keep an eye out for their spectacular Schwärzlabock, which is only out for a short time between Christmas and January 6th. We’ve gone up the last three years specifically to drink nothing but it. It’s that good.

Massive gorgeous Schäuferla & amazing Schwärzlabock
