The largest concentration of breweries in the world


**PLEASE CONTACT ME FOR AVAILABLE DATES AND TIMES**

You've probably already been on a beer tour or two in cities like Munich or Prague. Now it's time to try a beer tour that takes you out into the countryside where nearly every pathway leads to a brewery.

The countryside that I'm referring to is the Franconian Switzerland region near Nuremberg. It is world famous for its high density of traditional breweries. Case in point: in Germany there are 1, 284 breweries and more than half of them (618) brew their beer in Bavaria and 201 of them in Upper Franconia. And. . . 73 of the 201 Upper Franconian breweries are located in the Franconian Switzerland region which makes it the largest concentration of breweries in the world. But wait, it gets better. . . according to the Guinness Book of Records, the small village of Aufsess in Franconian Switzerland, as measured by its number of inhabitants (1, 400), has the highest brewery density (four breweries) in the entire world!

My Franconian Village Beer Tour takes all afternoon and is never the same twice because, with 73 breweries and hundreds of beer cellars and beer gardens to choose from, I like to mix things up. Besides, there are numerous events taking place in the area throughout the year and I like to take them in when possible. In any event, the tour is a lot of fun and an opportunity to learn about the history of beer and take in the Franconian countryside.

For parties of four or less, pick-up and drop-off with my personal vehicle from locations within central Nuremberg is FREE. If your party is larger than four people, please let me know so I can give you a quote for the additional costs involved. ​

I can also customize my Franconian Village Beer Tour to take your individual wishes into consideration. Just let me know and I'll be happy to give you a quote for any tour variation that you want. For example, if you want to spend more than one day in the area to discover
