Another must stop on the Bamberg beer love fest tour. Beers not as smokey as Schlenkerla. Across the street from Fassla. Food was good; service pleasant. Not as touristy as Schlenkerla.

This is conveniently located in between the train and the old downtown. It was so busy there was no way we could get in, so we had dinner elsewhere, checked into our hotel, and went back several hours later. At this point it was still very busy, but a table or two had opened up. Spezial is keeping the with the theme with long wooden tables, efficient servers, short beer list, German pub food, etc. It was so satisfying to finally have their beer fresh as it's very hard to find it in great condition stateside. We had a few rounds here, ended up talking to some tourists from elsewhere in Europe, and really enjoyed ourselves.

Visited 6.10.17 in the morning. So close, yet so far! We stayed in Fassla and our window was facing Spezial. Planned to spend Thursday night there, but ended up at the Bock tapping in Schlenkerla, letting my inner Franconian maiden do what she does best - swallowing lots and lots of Schlenkerla. So Spezial ended up being our last stop in Bamberg - and not a bad one, as there's nothing better than Rauchbier in the morning. Other than one table it was empty when we got there, and the beer is superb. Only one beer was on tap that time.

Likely to be the first place you?ll encounter, coming by train. Even from the outside the building oozes old Franconian bierstube. Inside there are several small-ish rooms with traditional long tables, wooden panelled walls and eclectic paraphernalia scattered about. The waiters are, but off course, elderly women, doing a splendid job serving beers and food. Gets busy, but not over crowded, and serves some of the best rauchbiers in the world, alongside with their Ungespundet. Nice, traditional German food, well worth trying as well. One of the absolute must-visit places in Bamberg!

The place is an original brewpub in Bavaria, so not too special with wooden furniture and too many people, but their beer is dangerously excellent and drinkable. So be sure to drop by for "some" beers.

Another Bamberg classic, famed for its rauchbier but undersung for its ’U’ or ungespundetes bier. A lot more international than it was. One for collectors more than fans of great architecture, though the façade is still pretty striking.

Get the Ungespundetes from here! Apart from that, nice cozy restaurant in a building that is kind of skewed.

Visited late on a Friday night. Nice, traditional brewpub close to centre of town. We were actually staying here (they have a number of rooms available above the pub / brewery) and can say that the rooms are very clean and spacious, well worth the money and the place is quite centrally located, continental breakfast was very good. We were slightly too late to order meals from the main menu (only available until 9pm), so we ordered from the snack menu. I had a goulash soup, which was pretty good. The only house beer that we tried was the rauch märzen, which was very good. Note that the hefeweizen that they serve here is actually from Maisels (this is one of my favourite beers but it was a bit disappointing that they don’t have their own). Service was typical German (efficient but not terribly friendly), though they did bend the rules a bit for us, so that one of our party could get a meal from the main menu. Definitely worth a visit.
