around the world – part 25.5 (rauchbier)

December 09 2007:

About an hour north of Greding, and approximately half an hour north of Nurnberg lies the town of Bamberg at the junction of the rivers Regnitz and Main and also a UNESCO world heritageSchlenkerla Rauchbierimg_0046_edited.jpg site.  It is a gorgeous little town, often overlooked by those crowding into img_0046_edited.jpgimg_0046_edited.jpgRothenburg o.d. Tauber, and just as well.   Among its more well known attractions are the seat of the ErzBishof (ArchBishop) with its residence and cathedral, and St Michaels monastery.  Perhaps a lesser known attraction is the Schlenkerla Rauchbier or Smokebeer.  On occasion, colleagues of junior are known to haul cases of Schlenkerla Rauchbier through town on their way back to Greding…. 

 How to to get there:

  1. By Car from: Munich:  A9, north to Nurnberg – follow signs for Erlangen, then A73 to Bamberg.  Most of the car parks are on the east bank of the Regnitz river and a short walk over some quite picturesque bridges into the old town.
