Our visit to the Valzner Weiher Restaurant was part of our German Road trip (that page has links to all the hotels, restaurants and places visited).

We were staying at the Hilton Nuremberg – a hotel way outside the centre of Nuremberg and not many nearby restaurants to choose from. The Valzner Weiher looked like a good place, set in the middle of a picturesque park with a lake.


Inside was a classic German restaurant.

And outside was a great terrace, although we sat inside as the whole of Germany seemed to be plagued by wasps (August 2018) and we also wondered about mosquitoes from the lake.

The staff were friendly. A Bier Herrnbrau was 3.80 €. A Wiener schnitzel was 16.80 €.

Salmon 16.20 €.

The food was okay, nothing amazing – during our week’s road trip, I learned that German food is still trapped in the 1980s. It’s sort of quaint in a way.

If you happen to find yourself at the Hilton Nuremberg, then it’s worth a walk round to Valzner Weiher – but there’s no reason to travel from Nuremberg centre unless you’re desperate to dine by a lake.
