Auerbachs Keller — one of the world’s most famous restaurant and wine bars — most likely dates from the early 1400’s. It was already an institution in 1765, when the German poet Goethe started patronizing it as a student. In his play Faust I, Auerbachs Keller is the first place Mephistopheles takes Faust on their travels. The restaurant and adjacent wine bar — still located in a cellar — is right in the historic city’s center, in one of its renowned arcades/passageways. You can’t miss it, if only for the throngs of tourist groups who stop by en masse.
