Enjoying the tradition of beer.

Red Beer in Deep Cellars

Nuremberg's rock-cut cellars – early brewing tradition

As early as in the year 1303, the council of the city of Nuremberg passed a „Reinheitsgebot“ requiring that only barley malt may be used for brewing. This „purity law“ marks the beginning of Nuremberg's beer history as it is still known to us. Ever since then, the brewing of beer is part of the city's history – be it in good or bad times.

Thus, homemade beer is the big theme at the start of this tour through the rock-cut cellars beneath Nuremberg. It ends – you bet – with a beertasting and a visit in the craft brewery "Hausbrauerei Altstadthof".
