"Franken has the feel of an old English pub with a punk attitude and the prices of a Berlin dive._x000D_

Franken has the feel of an old English pub with a punk attitude and the prices of a Berlin dive.

A huge wooden bar, complete with a boar’s head hanging above it, dominates the front of the pub, where posters and stickers for punk bands cover the wall and give some legitimacy to the bar’s reputation as a punk hangout.

Toward the back, red leather booths provide some contrast to the pub’s dark décor and are often filled with Franken’s loyal local patrons – although the Guinness on tap and a good selection of ciders also pulls in a sizable crowd of British expats.

While the music naturally tends toward rock and punk, it’s never overly loud and blends in with the patrons’ voices to create a boisterous pub atmosphere. And it is precisely because of that festive environment – and the cheap drinks – that Franken fills up and stays full almost every night of the week.

Tip from Jonah:

Head to Franken for some of the cheapest beer and cider in town. Not all of the options are listed on the menu, so if you don’t see what you’re looking for, just ask – chances are they’ll have it.

    Punk crowd in jeans and leather jackets. Mix of locals, British expats, and travelers, 20s and 30s.

  • Entertainment / Music

    The bar plays a mix of ska, punk, and alternative music from their impressive CD collection. Occasional live music. Video games and pinball machines in the back.

  • Prices

    Beer and cider €1.80–€3, wine €2.80, cocktails €5+, mixed drinks €4–€5, shots €1.80.

    Anything goes.

  • Hot Nights / When to Go
