This place is a real find, they serve great original Nürnberger Bratwurst and the interior is quite a match; rustic, original and cozy. You'll meet locals here, too, and get a sense of what life is like in the northern parts of Bavaria.

The food is very good. The atmosphere is awesome. The waitress didn't speak a ton of English, but that's my problem/fault and not hers! They were friendly, food came fast, had great beer, what else could you want? It's a great German experience.

This small restaurant in business since 1419 is located in Nuremberg's Altstadt, but is somewhat outside of the main tourist areas. It exudes a warm, inn-like atmosphere and has an attentive wait staff. I dined here solo on a Sunday evening around 6:30 pm without...More

They have great bratwurst and pork knuckles. We dropped in on a whim and had a wonderful meal. We could not possibly finish it all.

After checking TripAdvisor in my hostel, this place looked like the best to eat nearby; so I ventured to check it out. The exterior is beautiful and captivating, however I waited quite a while to actually be seated, on a wooden bench. The atmosphere was...More

You'll feel like you've stepped back into the 1400s at this restaurant. Sit down at the long wooden tables surrounded by antique mustard jars and order the traditional sausages famous in Nuremberg. Don't forget to try the beer here as it's fresh, cold and perfect...More

This place may be historical but it has lost any sense of history with it. From the moment you walk in and are greeted by Romanians in cheap garish German outfits. And then the beeps and the dings of the microwaves. The chatter of the...More
