Visit Bamberg, the secret capital of beer, and discover the oldest tradition in the world. See the historic old town with its cathedral and "Neue Residenz" castle on a walking tour. Admire the famous rose garden and learn all about the history of beer.

Hear about the beer witches, who according to legend mixed the beers before the implementation of the German Purity Laws. From anise to oak bark, spruce chips, caraway, bay leaves, pine tree root and St. John's wort, these components later caused brewers to be burned at the stake as witches.

After the tour, decide which brewery you'd like to return to and enjoy a tasting. Choose from a variety of beers and try the popular Bamberger smoked beer.

wet from the inside and the outside; Bamberg always worth a beer tour

Despite the constant rain, our tour with the personal guide on the penultimate day of the year was very nice. Cathedral, Rose Garden, Little Venice ... are worth seeing and the view from the top of the beautiful Franconian Bierstadt has really paid off. The brewery inns were well selected with typical Franconian smoked beer and food. We are sure to come again. Thanks.

entertaining tour of Bamberg with the visit of two breweries

It is an entertaining tour of Bamberg with the visit of two breweries in the city. By stopping, you lose time for the tour and the associated explanations. Extending the tour to three hours would be an option. Since you are not on your feet all the time, this is also reasonable. One is not bombarded with historical figures.

Great City, great tour, great beer.

We stopped in Bamberg on our way to Munich from Frankfurt. We knew we would be tired from the flight and didn't want to do the long drive to Munich on our first day. We decided on a quick overnight stop in Bamberg. We are so glad we did. Our tour guide was extremely friendly, knowledgeable, and fun to be around. We sampled two different styles of smoked beer and got a run down of the city. It is a beautiful City and really gets you into the feel of Germany. It started out trip off on a great note. Can't wait to visit again.
