Historic Rock Cut Cellars - An underground tour
At the end of the 14th century in Nuremberg, there were more than 40 breweries for a population that totaled less than 30,000 people. A regulation from the city council required everyone who wanted to brew beer and sell it to have their own beer cellar for fermentation and storing of beer. It is this medieval law that produced today's historical rock-cut cellars.
More than 20,000 m² of rock-cut cellars create the largest contiguous cellar labyrinth in southern Germany. Experience the fascinating cellars and corridors and listen to the sounds of more than seven centuries.
