Everything german food with sauerkraut

The place has very authentic german food but they serve almost everything with sauerkraut (sour cabbage). But if you're looking for a typical german food and you re close to the Altebrüke Heidelberg, you should try this place.

This was a great place to visit, not only when you happen to be in the area but for special events as well. I spent several birthdays here with friends and it was never a disappointment except for maybe the shnitzel which was not breaded as I normally expect it to be which made it a bit dry.. but the...

We went for lunch at a restaurant called Vetter’s, which had been recommended and where we had a very disappointing meal comprising bratwurst, grilled potatoes and sauerkraut, Anne had schnitzel which was OK, but my bratty was luke-warm and tasteless; and this the only day during our tour, for food in Germany! The only good thing about Fetter’s was the... More

Not every day you can incorporate a line from your college fight song into a restaurant review. After a short wait for a tour group to clear out, we ordered lunch. Nothing fancy. But on a sweltering hot day it would have been nice to have ice for our drinks, and apparently they don't have an ice machine.

We stumbled upon Vetter's during our time in Heidelberg. Traditional pub like atmosphere with a good selection of beers. Large menu and everything that went by looked excellent. Our meals were all tasty. Service was excellent as well. Overall made for an enjoyable evening.

When we arrived many tables had already been reserved for the night but we were able to snag a table and were so glad we did. We all enjoyed our beers and rieslings as well. For dinner we had an enormous cheese spaetzel, bratwurst, and sauerkraut and potato dumplings that could have easily fed three. We had sauerkraut leftovers for... More

We heard about the great selection of beers on offer here so we visited. My husband enjoyed his beer but I don't like it so wanted a glass of wine, but I was told 'but we are a brewery', I explained I didn't like beer and wine would be fine. The wine was good, but when I asked for some... More

Beer, good. Nuremberg sausages, good. View and atmosphere, good. Perhaps my favorite restaurant in Germany so far.

I love the location, it's very cozy! I love sitting outside so the heat doesn't bother me at all. I really like the weisswurst and am getting addicted to it! Very busy restaurant and usually takes a few minutes for the staff to come back to you... but it was OK.
