Nuremberg is the home to arguably the most famous food export from Germany, sausage. Yet, it is not the only option offered to hungry visitors. The city is littered with excellent dining spots bearing fascinating histories, as well as eclectic menus. Here are 10 of the best restaurants in this Bavarian city.
The very first Nürnberger sausage was cooked to perfection over a wood fire back in 1313, and to this day, the tradition continues. The best place to go for authentic sausage is at the Bratwursthäusle at St. Sebald in the center of town. There’s nothing pretentious about this crowded joint, and it really is a carnivore’s heaven with all meat sourced from sustainable sources.

Since 1979, restaurant Delphi has been serving up quality Greek cuisine in the heart of Germany. Although the establishment boasts a stylish and modern setting, its extensive menu goes back to traditional Mediterranean roots. From cold appetizers of taramasalata and tzaziki to hot starters of options such as grilled oyster mushrooms, roast goat’s milk cheese and authentic dolmades. Visitors are encouraged to dive right into the plethora of fish, grilled meat and slow-cooked dishes on offer.

Another stellar German dining experience is offered by Bratwurst Röslein, widely considered to be one of the the largest bratwurst restaurants in the world and with origins dating back to 1480. Offering a whopping 600 seats, with a beer garden able to accommodate up to 250 patrons, the institution is the holy grail of beer and Franconian speciality cuisine.

Situated in the heart of the Schottengasse, Restauration Fischer is run by an ambitious, young chef that brings to the table a light and Mediterranean-inspired cuisine. A dining menu can consist of starters such as salmon tartar, mains such as tagliatelle with mussels, fish and beef filets and naturally, a delightful selection of desserts.
