The history of Nuremberg's rock-cut cellarsSouthern Germany's biggest rock-cut cellar mazeThrough many centuries, the citizens of Nuremberg have built vaults and corridors into the bright red sandstone below their city. In 1380, the widespread cellar system was mentioned in a document for the first time. In all those years, the cellars were primarily used for the ripening and storage of beer – mostly the city's famous red beer.Today, the craft brewery Hausbrauerei Altstadthof again uses a small part of the widespread maze-like cellar system to ripen and store specialty beers and beer schnaps.Of course, visiting the craft brewery and the whisky distillery will be part of the tours. Afterwards, there will be time to taste the local specialties in the brewery tavern. Just come around, it is worth a visit!

An alternative way to learn about German life! An interesting way through subterranean Nuremburg! Our guide was very informative and made the tour interesting for us to enjoy every minute of it! An ideal option for those rainy days!

A labyrinth of tunnels carved out of the Rock on which Nuremberg sits for storing beer sounds ridiculous - but it is true! The tunnels are actually not that impressive but the effort to create and adapt them is. The history and information provided is...More
