My husband always likes to drink a local beer when traveling. When I discovered Vetter's Alt 33, the world's strongest beer, I knew we had to visit, We had told several people from our cruise. We all enjoyed a snack and beer!! Interesting and fun place.

The restaurant is located between the old bridge and the Marktplatz. You buy a beer and watch the world walk by. The was good but nothing out of the ordinary. I had the schnitzel and it was a little dry. They take reservations. Get there early for a good seat.

Have been here quite a few times when I come to Heidelberg for work and it never disappoints. The food is authentic and their seasonal beer is delicious. The staff are quite friendly and the atmosphere is spot on. Thank you!

It can't get any more German, any more tasty and any more casually comfortable. While the menu has a wide variety of German food, the beer variety of beer is endless. Nothing beats the Beer with 33% alcohol!! That was an experience of a lifetime. So basically, excellent variety, very good food and very good drinks... But most importantly, it's... More

Stopped here for lunch. Great craft beers on tap. For food I had the schweinshaxe with kraut and dark bread. Large portion and the meat was tender and the skin crispy. Very tasty. They serve many traditional foods here. Service was very prompt and beers refilled quickly. I would certainly stop here again.

The 6 of us mainly stopped in for a couple of micro brewed beers. Nice and varied selection of house brewed beers. Hop beers seem to be the thing nowadays but, they had other good selections too.

This was our favourite pub in Heidelberg - we came here twice it was that good. It is a busy pub that brews their own beers (favourite was the pils, but they are famous for the Vetter 33). Caters towards tourists with menus in both English and German. Typical regional German food, generous serves, fair prices, quick service. We bought... More

Despite not being special, this place is worth a visit - even if just yo try their Vetter's 33, a delicious doppelbock they brew here. The other beers are not impressive, at least for me that have been traveling around Germany for a few weeks now trying every beer that I can find (more than 100 so far). Food is... More

We visited with some friends this place for a lunch without any particular reason. It was early afternoon, we saw that it was relatively full with people and decided to give it a try. Needless to say everything was aimed at being traditional. The atmosphere, the tables, the menu, the cuisine, the beers - everything was exactly what a tourist... More
