Greifenklau is located way up on top of a hill, and it's one hell of a hike from the Altstadt. Once you get there, prepare to be ignored; they didn't seem to care much for non-locals. The beer's good here, but you'll find beers of equal quality and friendlier people at the nearby Laurenzikeller zum Ösi (Laurenziplatz 2), an outlet for Reckendorf beers. Rooms are available at the nearby Hotel Altenburgblick Garni at Panzerleite 59.
