When in Hahndorf it is surely needful to try a German style meal. And surely nothing is more German than a beer, pork knuckle and pretzle!

On this occasion my schnitzel was overlooked on one side and my mashed potato... More

We dropped by for a cold ale, ended up staying for lunch. I ordered the Grunschnitzel, it was awesome, great taste and filling. Beware, the meals are huge but you need to take it on and have a go. Rolled out the door after that. The beer was cold and so many to choose from, fun place to dine.

We waited in line for some time to get served as there was only one person who took your order and served your drinks. Drinks were at typical tourist prices and the food was similarly priced. I'd...

What an amazing authentic meal. We enjoyed the pork and the sausages and Herman beer. I highly recommend this place to eat whilst staying in Hahndorf.
