Welcome to Fässla Brewery and Hotel

It all started for the Fässla brewery back in 1649, the first year of peace after the thirty year war. The impressive facade is reminiscent of that of a typical brewery in the 50s, when the beer would have been delivered by horse and cart. One sees this by the size of the entrance with its large doors which lead to a covered courtyard the "Schwemm".

This area is not actually in the pub so the business men can go for a quick pint or two after work and then go home to the wife and if he is then asked "have you been in the pub?" he can answer "no" without having a bad conscience. The walls of the "Schwemm" have been decorated with two murals, one depicting Bambergs beautiful original town center and the other giving a historical view into the brewing process.

Our coat of arms shows the dwarf, that can also be seen on our website, rolling a barrel of beer. For twenty years we have been training young people in the art of brewing, keeping the family tradition alive.

Lounge, bar, and guest rooms

Fässla is to be found in the specially selected "Unesco world heritage town" of Bamberg.

Our opening times for the pub are: Monday to Saturday 8.30am until 11.00pm Sunday 8.30am until 12.00noon

In our rustical, wooden panelled dining-room one can partake in a snack or tuck into a solid Franconian speciality like e. g. roast pork with dumplings between 11.00am and 2.00pm and then in the evening between 5.00pm and 9.00pm. The kitchen is closed on Sundays.


Glasses, beer-mugs and a selection of our beers packed in a special carton. Please note that all kinds of souvenirs including beer label, bottle tops etc are for collection in the brewery only and won't be mailed.
