I picked out this beer garden as something to try before we left, and we were most happy with it. The setting is perfect. The staff is efficient and friendly and the food and beer were high quality and great value.

There is hardly a better location for eating / drinking outside in Nuremberg Old Town than Kupernikus. For a beer garden feeling (sharing tables, more energy) there is the courtyard, if on a date I would prefer the seating area towards the river. Either way, on a nice sunny day, Kupernikus would always be my number one choice. Food is... More

This place was awesome! We liked it so much we had dinner her twice during our stay in Nurnberg. My only advice, don't eat too much before you go here as the portions are huge and delicious!

We ate at this place on a whim and I am glad we did. It is on the third floor of the Krakauer house so a little bit hard to find. We went on a Wednesday night and had no trouble being seated. There is a bier garden and also an area on the wall that has many tables for... More

A little bit difficult to find on one of the Pegnitz's small islands, but look for the sign saying 'Krakenhaus' on the Hintere Insel Schutt and you'll see the Kopernikus's menu underneath on the wall. Go up about two flights and you'll discover the most lovely biergarten under the trees on top of the Medieval walls. Choose any beer, but... More

We saw the reviews on this place as great German food and set out for it. We couldn't find it. We went up and down the street, around the block-probably 30 min additional walking before we realized its 3rd floor of a building with another name on it! Krakauer haus building-3rd floor. There were NO tourists there-apparently a hidden gem... More

Have to admit portions are huge, no need for appetaizers. Had salad which was nothing special just average salad. Also tasted schnitzel from colleague and that was goooood. Fresh raddish. Very tasty.... More

The place is really lovely but not signalised. When we founded it we tried to dine there although it was full. Starting from the fact that no one considered us or indicated us where we have to go (considering that there are two or three floors and a biergarten inside), we decided to wait in spite of everything because the...

If you want to combine Polish and local cusine you should visit Kopernikus. We have had lunch there and the food was really good. Thanks to the nice weather we have had the possibility to sit outside (3rd floor - biergarten) which mad it even nicer. Service is fast and really nice. If you're not sure about your choice, they...
