forchheim-bier-traveller-2Fifteen minutes by train from Bamberg, Forchheim has proved to be  popular place to visit in the daytime thus keeping the Bamberg houses for later. With three brewery taps along a fifty metre stretch opposite the Rathaus, Forchheim was a rare treat. There was also a fourth brewery which proved elusive, or never open. It has gone. The Annafest held at the end of July is a great day out.  The Kellers on the hillside (take a taxi) are certainly worth a visit outwith the Annafest days.

Sadly Greif has closed its Forchheim outlet in The Line of Three Breweries in Sattlerstostr, with the Ausschank now concentrated at the Brewery itself.
