What distinguishes our restaurant

Passion for tradition


As 3rd generation landlords, we attach great importance to consistency and reliability. By continuing the tried and tested family business, we are not only able to preserve traditions, but also to live out our passion as hosts. For us, this includes a family atmosphere, good vibes and conviviality.


The tradition is also reflected in our food and drinks. Regional classics such as knuckle of pork, sauerbraten or the popular liver dumpling soup may not be forgotten on the varied menu. Of course, we also serve Kulmbacher beer from the region, which makes the classics from Upper Franconia a complete taste experience. With good taste, we bring people and tradition together in the best possible way.


For an experience of a special kind, you can book our authentic night watchman in our restaurant, who will tell you about the history and development of the town of Kulmbach in a cosy round, travel with you through the local beer world and guide you through a tasty and entertaining beer tasting - experience tradition up close. Contact us for further questions and booking requests.


Freshness you can taste


Our dishes are always freshly prepared, guaranteeing an incomparable taste experience. We attach great importance to the quality of our ingredients and source them from local suppliers over short distances.


Indulgence for all the senses


A special treat for all the senses - that is the standard we set for our dishes in the restaurant of our hotel Dobrachtal. And since it is well known that the eye eats with the body, we do not only want to pamper the palate in our restaurant. We want to offer you a taste and visual highlight that is already convincing on the plate and rounds off with a good taste.


Aesthetic food, however, goes beyond appearance. It also involves the flavours, textures and aromas of the food. Our visually appealing dishes are designed to give you an intense restaurant experience. That's why every detail is created with dedication and passion by our kitchen team - a real feast for the eyes.

The best sauerbraten I've eaten in Franconia in the last 10 years! The sauce smells really like gingerbread - dreamlike. Very creamy red cabbage, the meat so tender that you don't need a knife and very tasty dumplings.
