The historical barrel cellar, where wine serving began in 1525, is, so to speak, the heart of Auerbachs cellar. In this extraordinary place, history comes alive when the master of the barrel cellar or, indeed, anyone asks for the barrel cellar ceremony, a well-known and popular spectacle.

You can follow the footsteps of Goethe & Faust or Luther. Mephisto's coffee "klatsch" is another entertaining tour that takes you to the Historical Wine Taverns and the Great Cellar.
