Bierkeller #5 - Pettstadt

Saturday, July 22. 2006

In comparison to my fellow blogger friends I’m a little behind in visiting beer gardens .. Probably I had to much barbecues and therefore no need to go to a beer garden.. Anyway – Last week I managed to visit another beer garden – The one just before Pettstadt. Although the site is not very promising (directly next to a road), it is a very lovely beer garden. It can reach easily via bicycle or inline skates (just follow the road out of bug and you will almost run into the beer garden) and the beer and food is really worth a try. The portion “Obatzda” you get at this beer garden is twice the amount you get at the Wilde Rose and it is only 3,50€. The price for a beer is 1,70€.

Running Dinner X – Expectations?

Wednesday, June 7. 2006

After having a really great time last semester, I’ve been waiting for this day for quite a while. Unluckily Katrin can’t join me cooking this time, so I had to find another partner to team up with. I was very lucky that my first choice immediately was really enthusiastic about the idea to take part at the running dinner. For this dinner Jürgen and me are going to prepare a nice dish. So if you are going to the Neuerbstr. 53 for dessert – be ready for some … ok I will keep it a surprise.
I’m looking forward for an entertaining evening, which will start at Zollnerstreet onehundredsumthing, continue at the beloved Pestheim (Block C), have its highlight at Jürgen’s place and will find its ending at the great party at the Il Centro.
As you can see – expectations are high!

Bamberg entfesselt!

Wednesday, May 17. 2006

Yesterday I finally made it to meet with Sabine (later Paule also joined us) and we started finalizing a project I initiated already about four weeks ago. So we searched for a nice Wordpress template and name for our project. Have a look at our result here:

German readers can find the “why?” here. We think that it might be a nice experience to have a blog were many people with the same interest get the chance to write down their thoughts. So it is a try. You are invited to participate!

Off topic remark: In times of sorrow it is best to seek for distraction. This is a fact, and my friends are very good support in such occasions. Thx!

Bierkeller #4 – Grießkeller

Sunday, May 14. 2006

Seems like I’m a little slower than my blogger friends Jan and Sabine, who are already at their fifth and eights visit to a Bierkeller. Well, guess I went out for barbecue more often (got to write about that later). This Friday I went out to Geisfeld to visit the Grießkeller there. It is a very nice beer garden just some 10km outside of Bamberg. But it is best to visit it already in the afternoon. Just before sunset there are only a few sunny spots there. I met Tim, Tanja, Dirk and Later Jörg there way after 8pm, so we couldn’t enjoy the sun there.. But beer for 1,70€ is quite an offer. Unluckily I went there by car, so I kept it with Radler.

Blogosphere in Bamberg growing rapidly?!

Friday, May 12. 2006

A few days ago coyote asked, whether “we” are really the Blogosphere in Bamberg. This “we” was related mainly to all of the bloggers, which are from Bamberg and currently on my Blogroll. My pragmatic answer to this question was: “If there are new bloggers – we will find out sooner or later. And now thanks to Wuschel, Coyote and Zed I found a few new Blogs:

Obviously Dr. Schmidt is inspiring people to start blogging with his seminar about blogs.. The very best to all of the new bloggers from me - I hope you can keep it up!

Bierkeller #3 – Reundorf

Monday, May 8. 2006

On Friday was my third visit to a beer garden this year. We finally managed to organize a little trip, in order to “earn” our beer. So we met at the city and started for the beer garden by bike. Markus, Julia, Nadine, Annika, Jürgen, Soli, and me took the distance by bicycle and Soli’s friend Leni joined us later by car..

MeadowOn our way to Reundorf we first crossed the Hain, had to drive up a little hill after leaving Bamberg Bug, and later entered the beautiful meadows before Reundorf. But of course we took the chance to stop here and there in order to have a break. At a little stop at the meadows, my friends got entertained by me crawling on the ground to get a few nice shots. But I think my new header picture was worth my efforts.

SchmausenkellerThe beer garden in Reundorf is called "Schmausenkeller" and it is a real beauty. It is situated on the shadow edge of a forrest up a little hill. We got us a table, in the sun and went for some Radler (which is 50/50 beer/lemonade). With 1,5€ for half a liter it is one of the cheapest beer gardens around Bamberg.

The food was also quite good, and it is even possible to get coffee and cake at the beer garden. We had a lot of fun sitting in the sun talking and far too soon it was time to start back home...

Bierkeller #2 – Ampferbach

Thursday, May 4. 2006

Ampferbach festival groundsI got to admit that the visit to the Ampferbach beer garden today can’t be regarded as a ordinary beer garden visit. Since it is the first of May, which is a public holiday in Germany, and since there is a big festival at the brewery on this day, it is definitely a place to be. Unable to convince the girls of the challenge to visit the beer garden which is located some 10km outside of Bamberg via bicycle, we went there by car. But we didn’t have a problem to enjoy the local Max-Bock beer without going through endless endeavours before ;-).

picnicWe enjoyed to picnic at the festival grounds, and had a good time meeting a lot of friends there: Everywhere, where there are huge quantities of beer involved you can be sure that there will be a lot of students, too ;-). So it was no wonder meet a few people of the USI at the festival grounds. I also met Dirk and Jörg and our local DJ God - DJ Hammer! And many many more.. But I was not able to get pictures of everyone.

So it was a very pleasant and relaxed afternoon, which was definately caused by the good weather and my friendly company. For me personal I don't regret to spend the evening at home.. I heard some stories, that the evening did end quite bad for some of the other guests at Ampferbach, who had some more beers in Bamberg...

Bierkeller #1

Saturday, April 29. 2006

The idea for this series was stolen from Jan Schmidt, but it is so nice to have some memories on those beautiful beer gardens in Bamberg that I will do exactly the same. Let’s see how long it will take until we will be reporting about the same event at a beer garden!

It was a very warm weekend, and so the beer gardens had already opened in order to take advantage of the many many people out for a walk or a little journey on Sunday. So we were quite sure last Monday that the beer gardens would be open, too. It was Christian who called and made the proposal to take advantage of the good weather and to visit the Spezi-Keller. But accidentally this beer garden is closed on Mondays. So we had to go for the nearest alternative, which is the “Wilde Rose”. There we had to notice that it is already quite expensive on beer gardens at the city. A beer is 2.10€ this year, and I had to pay 4,30€ for my dinner. You can get cheaper and better beer/food at beer gardens, which are located outside from Bamberg. Unluckily our friends, To and Karsten who were visiting Bamberg at this time couldn’t be convinced to join us. So it was just Christian, Anna and me for the start; Tim and Tanja joined as a little bit later. I had my first “Gerupften” for this year (it is a cheese-speciality) and we met some friends from university. Afterwards we visited the Stammtisch, and also had some party at the Live-Club.
