Located high above the town of Bamberg, this biergarten is excellent with typical but good Franconian dishes. Very nice atmosphere on a nice day because the better seating is outside enjoying the gorgeous scenery looking at a panoramic view of Bamberg. It is a nice walk (all uphill) from the center of Bamberg (about 10 minutes), but it's well worth your effort to get here. Enjoy!

A group of over a dozen in Bamberg for AGM of Bieres sans Frontieres CAMRA GBBF section.
As I was staying at Brauerie Spezial Gastehof in town and the sun was shining. it was good tto visit Spezial Bierkeller effectively a beer garden to the south of city.The service, beers and views were great.
If you prefer perhaps a taxi may be booked for journey out.But go "zu fuss" for journey down to view architecture.

We first visited 'The Special' in August '86 and we re-visited in '13 we are pleased to state that nothing has changed. The standards of food and drink are still as high as ever, the location is beyond reproach and the view is still the best in town. Parking and access is a pain, get a cab but you still have to walk up the hill but you only have to do it once and it is worth the effort. Go there and relax.

I just finished reading some of the other reviews. First of all this bier garten wasn't built to make it easy for you to find nor is it a 5 star restaurant. Bier Gartens are for people who understand the German Tradition of relaxing & being social with friends & family. What some of you consider "rude" is normal and professional for them, they do their job and are not there to entertain you. The menu is basic German Bier Garten food. It is also allowed for you to bring a picnic basket with your own food as long as you order your beverages from them. We are Americans & lived in Bamberg for 6 years, loved going here and relaxing under the big old trees, enjoy a fresh pretzel with our fresh bier or having a full meal with brats & sauerkraut. My advice is: Go for the Bier, the view and RELAX! This is only one of many lovely Bier Gartens in Bamberg (one of the most beautiful cities in Germany).
