Restaurant Altenburg Housed in a castle that dates back to the early 12th century, this family-run restaurant offers a decidedly upscale Bavarian experience in a vaulted room built in 1834. The menu features a range of gourmet Franconian and Bavarian dishes, from liver dumpling soup and smoked salmon with potato pancakes to veal stew, pan-fried zander, and pork medallions with smoked beer and onion sauce, all beautifully plated with elegant sides and sauces. Be sure to order one of the traditional drinks, and save room for the cheeses and desserts, which you can burn off after your meal with a climb up the castle tower or a stroll around the courtyard.
