Beer and Nuremberg

Discover Nuremberg's beer tradition and diversity. For centuries, Nuremberg has been an important city for brewing beer. Whether light, dark or the traditional red – you’ll find something for every taste here. The most famous and popular breweries are the Tucher Traditionsbrauerei, Hausbrauerei Altstadthof and Schanzenbräu. Linked to this beer tradition and a special highlight of the city are the historical rock cut cellars, which are cut up to four stories deep into the sandstone hill beneath Nuremberg. Today, as in the past, they are a cool storage place for tasty specialties made from hops and malt.
