Dating from 1752, this brewery-cum-tavern was the home of Dorothea Viehmann, the famous storyteller and the main source of many of the fairy tales later published by the Brothers Grimm, including "Hansel and Gretel," "Little Red Riding Hood," and "Rumpelstiltskin." Today the old road that runs by the inn is now Autobahn A49 between the Baunatal Mitte and Baunatal Nord exits. The local brew is still served here, alongside regional specialties including Biersuppe. Expect old-fashioned German dishes such as tender veal and roast pork with dumplings and cabbage. Schnitzels fill the platters and herring is always a feature, as is rumpsteak with fried potatoes.
