This brauerei is located almost directly across the street from Brauerei Faessla. There is a lot to see and do very close and the food here is equal to any in the city. There is also a unique rausch bier here. Try it....enjoy!

Brauerei Spezial is only a Restaurant. I don´t know nothing about rooms. You will have a good stay at the Welcome Hotel or the Residence Hotel in Bamberg.
