Beer and Castle Road
The Beer and Castle Route combines glorious scenery, fascinating history and warm hospitality. It runs along the B85 from the Kyffhäuser hills in Thuringia to the Bavarian Forest, with Kronach one its many stops. Around 500 kilometres in length, the route passes through varied and unspoilt upland scenery, giving you a real taste of Germany’s heritage. Magnificent monuments of a bygone age – mighty castles, lovingly restored residences and historically significant ruins – bring history to life. And, as taking a break is part of any journey, there are many traditional inns where you can stop for a bite to eat in cosy surroundings. Lovers of good beers will have the opportunity to sample from a vast selection of German specialities – dark, full-bodied beers, fine varieties of lager, refreshing wheat beers and eminently quaffable bock beers. All are produced by breweries that are situated either side of the B85.
