A warm welcome
to Brauereigasthof Rothenbach in Aufsess!
Experience true Franconian hospitality while enjoying the wonderful hiking, cycling, and biking opportunities of Franconian Switzerland. The Rothenbach family has been hosting people here for six generations, and we have operated the brewery over 130 years. Our ancestors settled directly on the Aufseß, below the castle Unteraufseß, and built up this Franconian brewery guesthouse over generations. Now, its central location could not be more perfect for trips to Bamberg, Bayreuth, Forchheim, or Kulmbach.
Open from 8:00 AM to 11:00 PM
April – October daily
November and March from Wednesday to Monday
December and February from Friday to Sunday

Our cozy restaurant, our bright Franconian bar, and the shaded beer garden right on the bank of the Aufseß are the most popular places our guesthouse has to offer. The threshing floor and the Schalander pub are optimal for corporate and family events as well as for tour groups. Our regional cuisine is known for its traditionally made roasts, seasonal specialties, and locally-sourced products. Many regular guests appreciate the familiar atmosphere and the friendly service.
