    Very cozy guesthouse with beer garden within sight of Thuisbrunn Castle. In addition to traditional Franconian delicacies, you also get hearty snack plates here. There is the home-brewed moose brew - just heavenly. If you still have room in your backpack, take two or three bottles of your favorite beer with you.

    The inn is open all year on Tuesdays and from 10 am to Friday.

    The Thuisbrunner Elch-Bräu and Gasthof Seitz are all about beer. The multi-award winning beer specialties from the bottle with the strap closure attract visitors from near and far. Freshly tapped, it tastes best in summer in a shady beer garden with a snack, of course, best. In addition to the already mentioned beers, the fine brandy sommelier Georg Kugler also offers fine brandies and a Franconian whiskey. Further information can be found on the homepage of the Kugler family under: gasthof-seitz.de

    Great food and beer in a well-designed beer garden - but unfortunately the highlight is created multiple times

    A cool moose brew below Schloss Thuisbrunn is highly recommended.

    Delicious beer and Franconian specialties as made by mother.
    In addition a Franconian whiskey which also deserves the name Whiskey.

    Starting point (which I would recommend to avoid the often very strong alcoholized men) or endpoint of the well-known 5-Seidla-climb. In my opinion one of the best beers in the region. Very nicely designed beer garden. Also worth a visit

    In the center is the brewery inn Seitz. At half-time the round trip is the stop, with the enjoyment of delicious beer in the small brewery, a very hot recommendation.

    Beautifully designed beer garden with one of the best beers in Franconia. Great food and a better starting point for the 5-Seidla-Steig than Weissenohe (thus it is easier to circumvent the often very numerous clearly alcoholized male groups). And first the whiskey "peat from the village" ...

    The Sauerbraten was really tasty and there are two dumplings. So nobody has to go hungry 😉. The service was very nice and the price was absolutely okay. You can take beer in bottles for at home 😜
