Guided Tours and Tastings for Groups

Let the experts show you the hidden treasures along Fünf-Seidla-Steig!

If you want to hike along and don`t want to organise the tour by yourself our partners will provide you with the necessary plans. They can acquire the reservations for meals in the restaurants and accompany your group on chosen subjects you want to experience. For some breweries guided visits can be booked directly when requesting a tour guide.
Some of our partners can also arrange a day tour or even short holiday in the region  – „Fränkische Schweiz“ (Franconian Switzerland) and offer qualified travel company for e. g. bus tours. Those contacts are noted at the BOTTOM of this page.
Please take into account that not all of our tour guides are multilingual – in most cases you would need a translator.

Big groups – please note that making a reservation is hardly possible on the weekends because of the other groups hiking. Please change to weekdays if possible! Friday is the best day for visiting all of our brewery inns – usually all of them are open.

Ausflugs-Special für geführte Gruppen

Für Betriebs- und Vereinsausflüge ist der Fünf-Seidla-Steig bestens geeeignet. Allerdings schafft Ihr mit Eurer Gruppe meist nicht die ganze Strecke mit allen 5 Brauereigasthöfen, v. a. wenn Ihr eine längere Anreise habt und nicht schon früh morgens startet. Unsere Wanderführer*innen bieten für die jeweiligen zeitlichen Möglichkeiten die optimale Tour an – und Ihr könnt bei einer Einkehr z. B. in nur drei Gasthöfen entspannter den Tag genießen. Unseren Krug erhaltet Ihr in jedem Fall am Ende der Wanderung, egal wo sie endet!
Bitte sprecht mit der Tourleitung, ob es eine Möglichkeit gibt, auch die fehlenden Biersorten an diesem Tag mit nach Hause zu nehmen.

Here some subjects to choose from at a guided tour:
