The self-proclaimed highest Biergarten in Bamberg is just that, sitting adjacent the Altenburg, surely the highest fortress in town. The excursion to the Altenburg is a worthy endeavor and as with most things in Bamberg, there is a beery reward to boot. The small but atmospheric Biergarten has some leafy trees and close up views of the castle along with a fine selection of beers on tap and some food if hungry from your efforts.

Mahrs U on tap & up close Altenburg

It took me quite some time to finally make my way up to the Altenburg but the views on the way up are even better than the views from the top. It’s well worth the effort and the beer tastes especially good after making it.

Beers: Weyermann Lager Hell, Mahrs U, Mahrs Pils all on tap. Bottle Maisel Weizen.
