My husband and I stopped here for lunch in Dresden and were not disappointed! I had this amazing wurst with potatoes and carrots inside. The beer was great too! We were able to sit outside and had great service. Still dreaming about that wurst!

It is essential to book a table at this restaurant as it is very popular. The decor is typical Brauhaus - dark wood, large tables, with unusual large portraits on the walls. The staff are friendly and helpful even though they are very rushed and...More
