i arrived in Germany in early May, and was just in time to sample Vetter’s Maibock - not my FIRST beer in Germany, but it was quickly my favorite... until they sold out and the season passed us by. Nice ambiance, with hops hanging from the chandeliers and the copper kettle sitting against the wall - they brew in the AMs before they open for lunch, so you won’t get to see them in action lest you come REALLY early and peek in the window. Located just up the street from the famous "walking bridge" in downtown Heidelberg, I’ve found it to be a GREAT place to wait for my spouse as she ponders the tourist shopping area known as the Hauptstrasse. Food is good too, but come for the beer!! The only downside is the selection; usually 2 on tap, plus maybe a seasonal...
Uriges Brauhaus mit kleinem Biergarten im Herzen der Heidelberger; nette Atmosphäre, Service okay; die Küche bietet traditionelle deutsche Brauhausgerichte in ansprechender Qualität; im Ausschank sind 2-3 Standardbiere ergänzt um saisonal wechselnde Biere
La migliore birreria di Heidelberg, il posto è molto caratteristico, tipico locale birrario tedesco. Alla spina ci sono alcune fisse e una stagionale. Possibilità di comprare la bottiglia di helles e 33, ma prezzi elevati. Il cibo è di buon livello.
Super busy and full of Chinese tourists on a Saturday afternoon. Service was rather fast having the place such full. Four beers available... from decent to good. Quite nice prices compared to other Heidelberg places. Heidelberg is not exactly a beer mecca so this place is definitely recommended.
Located in old town with indoor and outside seating. They had four of their beers on tap. Solid service for being a tourist area. I visited between lunch and dinner to avoid the crowd. The food was good too. Visit if in Heidelberg.
Visited september 2010. Easy to find being in the city center. Traditionel city brauhaus, cosy and very busy. The staff seemed a bit tired / busy as if we were just another tourist coming for a beer. The beer was served in good condition. They do traditionel german brauhaus food, but we already had eaten. But for sure worth a visit being in Heidelberg..
Beautiful location by the pedestrian street leading down to the Alte Brücke, the view will be best enjoyed at the pub’s outdoor seating. Four of their own beers were available at our visit, including Vetters 33 and their seasonal Heidelberger Frisch. It’s a rather large, airy pub with their brewing plant located next to the bar. Service by the table, fast and polite. Clean toilets (visited 25.07.2014).
