Social Event: Entlas Keller, Private Brewery

Since the 17th century, Erlanger brewers have dug a labyrinth of passages into the hill, with about 20 km of corridors. These cellars are conceived as perfect natural storage facilities: eight degrees Celsius and high humidity.

Over time and not least due to the invention of the refrigerating machine (1876), these storage facilities lost their original purpose. Some of them were used for mushroom cultivation other as air-raid shelters or heating systems.

After World War II, cellars seemed forgotten. The mountain began to close up again due to the pressure of the ground. Father and Son Engelhardt have decided to bring the Entlas Keller, built in 1686, back to life. We cordially invite you to dine in the Entlas Keller and take a tour through the underground labyrinth.
