It could be the Bavarian embassy in Hesse: the Königsalm at Nieste, Germany. Green meadows, good views onto the little town, two large alpine cabins with a large outdoor area. It is a place many hikers, bikers and cyclists get to. The friendly team serves Schweinsbraten, Grillhaxen, Leberkäse, Obatzter and Weißwürstchen to give you the feeling of being at Bavaria – but afterwards you need to do some sports to burn calories.Continue reading “Königsalm”
Maybe the Rondell is today the best beergarden at Kassel, Germany. You can sit on an ancient turret with thick stone walls and sip your drink while having good views on river Fulda. The former tower dates back to the year 1523 and is a rest of a castle standing at this place from 1466 on.Continue reading “Rondell”
Many people ride their bicycles along the river Fulda – on longer routes throughout Germany or just as a day trip from Kassel to Hann. Münden, Germany. Therefore you will find some eateries, beer gardens and restaurants next to the water. A special beer garden can be found close to the watergate at Wilhelmshausen, belonging to Fuldatal.

It is a brewery, but a special one. At Schinkels Brauhaus at Witzenhausen, Germany they produce beer from ecologically produced ingredients only. You can taste it there and the restaurant doesn’t serve the traditional high-caloric, unhealthy brewery-food normally served at these places. Continue reading “Schinkels Brauhaus”
The Irish Pub is one of my favourite bars in Göttingen, Germany. In the summer a nice beer garden invites you to enjoy a Guinness, Strongbow or Cider under the trees within the center of the town. When the weather conditions are bad or in the evenings, there are two floors inside with a dark but very hospitable atmosphere.
Well, Offenbach isn’t the most beautiful place in the world. But if you need a beer or a coffee close to the river Main, have the children entertained by a big sandbox and a playground with a ship, the Hafen 2 might be right. The place offers a café, a bar, an outdoor cinema and a concert stage.
The ‘Waterloo’ is a beergarden quite close to the city center of Hannover, Germany – next to the river Leine, the market hall and the parliament of Lower Saxony. There are three reasons why you might visit this place: (1) You are in need of fresh air and a good beer, (2) you want to watch soccer games of the Bundesliga on screen, or (3) you are on your way to the Niedersachsenstadion for watching live soccer and have a break. To get there you can take the tramway to the station also called Waterloo.
During my stay in New York the quarter and semi finals of the FIFA World Cup 2014 in Brazil where held. That is why I was looking for a bar showing the games of the German soccer team (“Die Mannschaft“, as it is called in the States). Easily I found the “Zum Schneider“, a Bavarian beergarden and restaurant in the East Village of New York.
Within the district “Wilhelmshöhe” of Kassel, Germany, you can find the brewery “Zum Rammelsberg” – a small brewery with good food and a nice beergarden. In fact they are serving beer of Kassels Hütt brewery which is only available in nortern Hesse. A “Hütt naturtrüb” (unfiltered) is always a good choice!
