They specialize in “Karpfen blau”** steamed in an excellent Vegetable-Wine marinade, Filet Mignon from Angus beef with fried potatoes, mixed salads with a sweet-sour house dressing and we also have to mention “Kronfleisch”** another local specialty.

“Brauerei Nothaft“, one of the many excellent breweries in the region, the history of brewing beer at their location dates back to the year 1540. Otto Nothaft founded the brewery in 1882 and it is still in this families ownership (4th generation). According to their website, they conduct brewery tours but they might be only in the German language.
Karpfen blau (carp blue), is a famous dish in Northern Bavaria, the fish is cooked in a vinegar based brine, which gives the skin of the fish a bluish color, hence the name “blue”. A recipe for this with a rainbow trout can be found at Inge’s Kitchen.
