English Guided Tour - Historische Felsengänge

Southern Germany's biggest rock-cut cellar maze

Through many centuries, the citizens of Nuremberg have built vaults and corridors into the bright red sandstone below their city. In 1380, the widespread cellar system was mentioned in a document for the first time. In all those years, the cellars were primarily used for the ripening and storage of beer – mostly the city's famous red beer.

Today, the craft brewery again uses a small part of the widespread maze-like cellar system to ripen and store specialty beers and beer schnaps.

Of course, visiting the and the whisky distillery will be part of the tours. Afterwards, there will be time to taste the local specialties in the brewery tavern. Just come around, it is worth a visit!
