Wanderer and Bieramt at Tiergärtnertorplatz
Franconian beer culture in a spectacular setting
In the Castle District there are a lot of great spots, but none better than Tiergärtnertor Square. Those who find their way to this place on a warm summer evening will fall in love with Nuremberg immediately – if they haven’t before.
Here, young and old, families and singles, tourists and locals meet below the Nuremberg Imperial Castle to share a drink or two and enjoy the view of the Nuremberg city wall and the old half-timbered houses. One of the most beautiful and best preserved places in the city, Tiergärtnertor Square vibrates with life like a piazza in the south.
Café Bar Wanderer captivates you with excellent coffee specialties and cake, stylish and served with the traditional small glass of water. If you are lucky enough to grab a table, you’ll be absolutely spoiled: Sitting outdoors and watching the locals and tourists stroll by, soaking in the sun and letting your soul relax ... that’s true enjoyment. The renovated former workshop that is today a café bar has a fabulous view of the Albrecht Dürer House and serves espresso specialties, wine and long drinks – their Aperol spritz is one of the “must haves” during a visit to Nuremberg.
From November to January 6, you can warm up with hot mulled wine at the Wanderer. Located directly on Tiergärtnertorplatz with a view of the Kaiserburg, the popular winter drink tastes twice as good when mixed with fine spices.
Focus on regional products
Next door, the Bieramt, a beer pub in a former coachman’s house complete with watering trough, draws locals and guests from all over the world. Here, you’ll only find regional, Franconian beers. Eighteen to 20 varieties are always available and every week there are two special kegs, a helles and a dark. That adds 80 more beers each year – what more do you want?
Tiergärtnertorplatz is a great location not only because of its absolutely outstanding location at the highest point of the castle wall, but also because of the unique selection of regional beers and delicious coffee specialities. A visit is simply part of the city feeling - get a delicious drink, take a seat somewhere on centuries-old cobblestones, strike up a conversation with your neighbour and enjoy the exuberant atmosphere... together with dozens of like-minded people. And that is how it becomes evident that this is about much more than local beer culture, but rather a meeting place with centuries of history that makes a piece of Franconian identity come alive.
