We love this place. We are always here after business in Karlsruhe. Always pretty crowded, good atmosphere, good snitzel and a lot of very nice beer. A good choice for a laid back evening

Always pulled out of the place at lunch as well as in the evening. Reasonable prices and the beer is really good: always two different beers, home brewed whiskey, Schnaps and other delights depending... More

As a Brewhouse the Vogelbrau offers food also, some of it is really good in the brewhouse style, but what really makes the difference to other similar places is the BEER, which is simply one of the best in the world! (And the five points are for the beer) Rudi Vogel, owner and brewmaster, studied in University in Germany how... More

I like this place. Have visited a couple of times with friends and we definitely will go back there again. It takes a lot of time to receive your food, go there when you are in no hurry.

Nice terrace, nice location and nice bier but very bad service. The food is not specially good, but you would anyway mostly visit the place to drink :-). The service is slow and rude. The waiter give you order, would not listen to what you ask. It was really incredible and nobody at the table could believe that such a... More

While the food was not great it was tasty and filling. It was nice to try out the unfiltered beers. The staff was very friendly and the service was super-fast. It was good to sit outside in the cool garden at the shade in the hot of August. There were many locals- which is a good sign in my opinion-...

On a baking hot day it was a relief to find some shade in this beer garden, have a couple of half litres of the super beer brewed on site and sample some of their hearty German food. More vegetarian options than most German places. Just make sure that you sit in the correct seats in the garden as the... More

Typically German food, not bad, not great. However, this is the go-to place for exactly that. Have some beer or even local German redwine. Good atmoshpere!

Amazing Biergarten in Durlach, Karlsruhe, with a little playground. It is possible children enjoy while their parents drink homemade beers. In my opinion the Durlach unit is better than the one in downtown. Good germany food.
