“Hospitality is their focus”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed October 2, 2010

My wife and I recently stayed at the guest house and brewery. We stayed in their new building that is just a few months old. The room was very clean and comfortable. The owner's son Matthew was very helpful on our arrival, helping us plan our sightseeing for the next day. We expressed an interest in the brewery and Matthew said he would talk to his father about it. While having dinner at the restaurant, which is also where they serve breakfast that is included with the room, the owner asked us if we would like to tour the brewery that evening. After dinner, which was delicious, we recieved a personal tour of the brewery. What a treat, definitely one of the highlights of our vacation. They have been brewing beer there for over 350 years, snd it is some of the best I have ever drank.

Small gasthof belonging to Schneider Brewery in Essing, Bavaria ("the small
brewery in the Altmuhl Valley"). Schneider makes the best Weitzen (Weissbier)
on earth and this was the original brewery.

The Altmuhl Valley is a Blue Ridge sort of long valley with the Amsterdam to
Black Sea canal running through it, as well as the Danube River. The area is a
couple hours from Munich and an hour or so from Nuremberg and less to
Regensburg, as well as close to the Bavarian Wald and premier hops country in
the Hollertal.

The guest house is fine if you are staying in the area, which has a lot to offer
for outdoors people and lovers of the baroque churches and monasteries
around--and except for the occasional Dutch tour bus, few tourists. The rooms are fine and less than $50 for a single or
$75 for a double. Clean, although mine smelled a little musty (that's what
travel candles are for).

The best is the area: Essing is a beautiful village with huge Juraissic cliffs.
And the ability to sample almost a dozen beers with fish, game, local meat
(especially lamb) at the restaurant overlooking a small stream and walk or crawl
next door to your room.

And when the bells ring to call you to the lovely church.....

  • Liked — The brewery attached and the scenic area around
  • Disliked — Smelled musty
  • Tips/Secrets — Great value, great area
  • Stayed November 2006, traveled with friends
