TRADITION IS NOT PRESERVING THE ASHES, BUT PASSING ON GLOWING EMBERS.

With expe­ri­ence and great sensi­ti­vity for this historic, beau­tiful house in the Opern­straße, supe­rior gastro­nomy and hospi­ta­lity are provided as they have been for several centu­ries. Our guests are welcomed cordi­ally, cared for and pampered — now as they were then.
As early as the 16th century, the people of Bayreuth who appre­ciated hospi­ta­lity and good beer came to this house in Opern­straße. The history of the Köhler family, one of the oldest in the city, can be traced back to 1500, and from this time on the family was granted brewing and hospi­ta­lity rights. Ances­tors of the family were docu­mented as “butchers and free citi­zens of the city of Bayreuth”.
In the main buil­ding, the cellars and parts of the service buil­dings, which were origi­nally used as pigs­ties and for storing beer barrels, bear witness to this period.

Every year, once again, it is well worth “drop­ping anchor” as a guest at the “Anker”.
