The Tour

Beer tour in Bavaria - Nuremberg

This round trip will lead you through the famous medieval towns of Nuremberg, Bamberg and Rothenburg, as well as “Beer Franconia” - where you’ll find more breweries than anywhere else in the world. Along the route which mostly leads along rivers and canals, you’ll see countless castles, chateaus and beer gardens. However, you should have a certain level of baseline fitness for this Beer tour in Bavaria, or consider using an e-bike.
