Great place to enjoy the skyline of Bamberg! in summer, it is perfect to have a delicious beer at the tables in the garden. The typical bavarian food has good prices and it's good.

Not a hard walk though up hill worth it for the beer and views. Didn't try the food though it looked good. And remember its all down hill going home! Used self service which was quick and painless.

Everything was excellent. The food was fresh delicious, the beer also, and the service was very quick. And I also loved the location: green and peaceful.

Met Bamberg local friends here for dinner. We had a reserved table outside under the awning, which was good because the rain really started coming down before even drinks arrived. The lightly smoked beer is wonderful. A real local treat! The dish to try here is called: rindfleisch mit kren (meerettichsosse) preiselbeeren und kloss. That's a mouthful of words that... More

Located high above the town of Bamberg, this biergarten is excellent with typical but good Franconian dishes. Very nice atmosphere on a nice day because the better seating is outside enjoying the gorgeous scenery looking at a panoramic view of Bamberg. It is a nice walk (all uphill) from the center of Bamberg (about 10 minutes), but it's well worth... More

We first visited 'The Special' in August '86 and we re-visited in '13 we are pleased to state that nothing has changed. The standards of food and drink are still as high as ever, the location is beyond reproach and the view is still the best in town. Parking and access is a pain, get a cab but you still... More

I just finished reading some of the other reviews. First of all this bier garten wasn't built to make it easy for you to find nor is it a 5 star restaurant. Bier Gartens are for people who understand the German Tradition of relaxing & being social with friends & family. What some of you consider "rude" is normal and... More
