Located Right in the town centre. Super German Food (etc.) and wide range of Beers. A real traditional Bräuhouse outlet. The best place to enjoy is in the shady courtyard behind. Friendly and efficient employees . . . Reasonably priced / great value for money...More

Great food, great location in the centre of Merano. Beautiful old biergarten with great German ‘beer’ food and equal local Forst lagers. Recommended!

Just what you would expect from a Germanic beer hall. Fantastic beer and decent food but nothing that is going to win gourmet awards. Lots of dumplings, schnitzels etc plus a few Italian dishes to reflect the fact Merano is actually in Italy! Efficient service...More

We’ve eaten in the Forsterbräu restaurant 3 or 4 times and the food and service are always excellent. There’s a good selection of traditional classics: haxen, Wiener schnitzel etc, a few Italian dishes (octopus salad, swordfish) as well as more modern and lighter fare. All...More
