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.

The Nuremberg city beer - the Rotbier or red beer - you'll find at the Hausbrauerei Altstadthof

Nuremberg likes to call itself the "Home of Rotbier" although no one is certain if it was really someone from Nuremberg or a Belgian who first brewed a red beer. In Nuremberg, the original Nuremberg red beer has been brewed according to local brewing regulations since the Middle Ages. The special type of beer is bottom-fermented - slowly and at low temperatures.
