Classic beergarden nearby the old bridge. Perfect view towards the castle. Very affordable prices for beer and food. Good italian restaurant side by side.

We’ve eaten at the Alter Kran numerous times. The food is your average beer garden fare: sausages, salads, etc. In the summertime, it’s lovely to sit outside, and some seats have nice views of the Festung. Although the food doesn’t stand out as anything special,...More

Perfect place if you are looking for a german food experience. Not only the food is good (i had the pork knuckle, some sausages and we shared some other food) but the view on the Main river and the castle in the back is supernice.

Great cocktails for happy hour! Very friendly staff and traditional Bavarian food was nice. Lovely location for the summer although we were here in the snow which was pretty but couldn't make the best of the views. Would recommend. Was also recommended to us by...More

Fair prices, good portions and lots of locals. This is the place to try. Really good taste, it's also a brewery, so expect good beer too.

The haxe and schnitzel were good and the place was lively. Unfortunately we did not book ahead so we had to eat on a bar table.

The service here was surprisingly quick, especially compared to the very poor service we experienced at Locanda next door. They have lots of outdoor seating for those sunny days with a view of the city bridges, Main river and the fortress. The food wasn't the...More

With its idyllic location next to the river Main the Brauerei-Gasthof Alter Kranen has already a gorgeous setting. But if you let your eyes wander around, you can enjoy a postcard panorama view with the Alte Mainbrücke, Käppele and the fortress. Try a freshly tapped Würzburger Hofbräu beer and some of the typical Franconian specialties like Haxe and Sauerbraten. In the summer months you can sit in the beer garden Alter Kranen and enjoy the sun.
