A beer tour of Bamberg

This city bike tour will introduce you to the brewery museum, a malthouse and seven of the nine breweries which still exist as working breweries in Bamberg. The best path to get to know this beer town beyond the immediate city centre area is the bike path. In addition to classic locations like Sandstrasse, with the most famous of all of Bamberg's traditional breweries, Schlenkerla, you will also discover the Königsstraße and Wunderburg areas with their lively brewing traditions and the Hain quarter with the villas built by hops merchants in the late nineteenth century.

You will hear the story of the Bamberg Beer War and find out more about the town's brewing and malting traditions. And you will discover why Bambergers go “up” (and not down) to their beer cellars.
