the hall only contained one restaurant, some chairs and hanging hams. The building itself is pretty. I just wish it was still a beer hall.More

This is a place to introduce local food items, incl. beer. We ordered two kinds of beer and a plate of cheeses and charcuteries. It's too bad that they do not name them and so we can't name them at shops! The business hours as...More

This place sells all the local food. Very good to bring tourists on a sightseeing and tasting trip. I love the meat. All the food is available for purchase to bring back home and for consumption within the venue itself.
