First Franconia trip - suggestions

If it is your first trip to Bamberg, then definitely visit the breweries in town.  Spezial, Fässla, Schlenkerla, Mahrs, Keesmann, Greifenklau, Klosterbräu.  You can also pop into Ambräusianum for a quick beer just to say you did, since it is right down the street from Schlenkerla.  

Visit some bars and pubs in Bamberg, too.  Cafe Abseits, Pizzini, Galerie am Stephansberg, Stöhrenkeller, Zapfhahn, Der Pelikan, etc.

If you are in a group of 4-5 people, here is a suggestion for a Bierkeller (Biergarten) trip:  take a train from Bamberg to Hirschaid, get a taxi at the station (you might have to phone for one, ask in this forum for one of us to give you a phone number of a taxi), and take the taxi to the Kreuzberg in Hallerndorf.  This taxi should only cost €25 or so, maybe less(?).  At the top of Kreuzberg (Berg means hill) you will find 3 Kellers:  Brauhaus am Kreuzberg, Lieberth Keller, and Rittmayer Keller.  From the top of the hill, you can walk down to another Keller:  Roppelt Keller in Stiebarlimbach.  You can easily spend the better part of a day at these 4 Kellers.  To get back to Bamberg, you can ask an employee at one of the Kellers to call a taxi for you.  Or you can get the 265 bus from Stiebarlimbach to Forchheim, but check the departure times because the last bus of the day leaves Stiebarlimbach sometime around 7 pm.  Be sure to check the opening days and opening times of these Kellers when planning your excursion.  If spending a little more money is not a problem, you could even get your taxi at the Bahnhof (train station) in Bamberg instead of in Hirschaid.
