This is a nice little brewing museum. There is a lot of history in this particular region (and Germany). If you like beer and have a spot of time this museum is worth a visit to learn about the importance of Bamberg.

Bamberg is not noted for the quality of their hops, and it is their smoked beer for which the City is probably best known. The museum shows the basics that one would expect. There are so many other things to see and do in the...More
