Bamberg (city)

Bamberg is one of not only Franconia’s most beautiful cities, it’s one of the world’s wonders. With a fantastic juxtaposition of architectural styles, it never gets boring and the sight of the Old Town Hall straddling the river never grows old, either.  Even if you weren’t interested in beer whatsoever, a visit here is a must for anyone traveling in Bavaria. Of course, that it has more than its share of great breweries makes it all that much more intriguing and for those so inclined, it makes an amazing base for exploring the nearly 300 small breweries in its vicinity.

Below are the breweries in town that I have visited, most of them many times. I’ve also included four Bierkellers/Biergartens. The first two are as can’t miss as the breweries, the third is a good option in summer to the brewery’s tap in town. The fourth has great views at a major tourist attraction and fifth is the very rare riverside eatery.
