This place was packed and popular. We ordered the Rumpsteakbrot & the Schnitzel and ate every single bite. The rumpsteak was cooked to perfection with an herb butter on top. The Schnitzel was the best we had in Germany (and we tried schnitzel on a least 5 of our 6 nights in Germany. The schnitzel had a light gravy that... More

We sampled local German favorites for lunch, along with beer and wine. Great food and service! It was a lovely spring day, so we enjoyed sitting in the outside area!

Tried the Märzen, very good Food was okay, fast and not too expensive. If you just want to have a drink, don't come at diner time.

Beer sampler and sausages with mustard and sauerkraut, exactly what's needed for the full German tourist experience. It's what we were looking for, so it was great; bit if you're looking for authentic, go to the other side of the river. Their Vetter 33 high-octane beer is an acquired taste. Not my cup of tea, but I bet it's got... More

Well situated on the street leading to the Alte Brucke, this brew pub is rather cramped inside - obviously trying maximise the seating space. They offer a tasting paddle of 4 of their own beers, though I didn't rate the beer as good as the nearby Palmbrau. It was also rather more expensive, which, coupled with the slow service, put...

If you find yourself in Heidelberg you need to stop by here. Vetter Bauhaus has excellent beer and also an excellent selection of authentic German food. Especially the meats.

Vetter's Brauhaus in the old town of Heildelberg brews their own beer, and it's very good! Their food is also very well priced and tasty. i think my husband and I have found our favorite place to stop for a beer and dinner when we are in the old town area of Heidelberg!

Traditional German menu - with large portions. Large offering of beer which is brewed on site. Rustic atmosphere - large wooden tables - give a medieval atmosphere.

There was no consensus among our group. I thought the dinner (I got the Maultaschen) was very good but a friend complained the Pfälzer Saumagen was too salty (for my taste it was just right). The Vetter 33° beer is nice, I'm not a big fan of beer but I liked this one, very concentrated flavor, and sweet. You can... More

We ate at the terrace of this place, four adults and two kids and everything was fine. We eat a sausage degustation and two special plates for the kids. Also we tasted the both natural beers and was fantastic. The location is very good, near market place and with a nice view of the bridge towers. The food was very... More
