Schanzenbräu Schankwirtschaft

Don’t let the tongue-twisting name put you off! For the last decade, this charming tavern has earned immense popularity among Nuremberg locals and not without reason. Schanzenbräu Schankwirtschaft has a lovely biergarten that is the perfect spot to enjoy the summer sun over chilled drinks.
