Kuchlbauer-Turm, Abensberg
(4.1/5 based on 110+ reviews on the web)
The surreal, multicolored observation tower, Kuchlbauer-Turm, graces the grounds of Abensberg 's Kuchlbauer Brewery. From the top of the gold-plated observation ball, Austrian architect Friedensreich Hundertwasser wanted to treat visitors to panoramic views of the surrounding countryside. The organically shaped tower houses a collection of 4,200 Weissbier glasses, along with exhibits on the brewing process and the Bavarian Purity Law.

  • Long time ago we had to visit before even the brewery Kuchlbauer and Hundertwasser Tower in Abensberg. In the late afternoon we arrived and got just the last guided tour of the brewery. The culture and the philosophy that stand behind brewery and Hundertwasser object have impressed. We liked very much the leadership that have explanations and the subsequent beer tasting. After the visit of brewery and Tower, the atmosphere in the tasting area was however disappointing. There we found a combination of beer tent and fast-food restaurant before then. Would be nice if the Hundertwasser culture there would continue. Nevertheless, we can recommend a visit there

  • There is a certain hunt for weird and quirky architecture aimed to give a unique 'spirit of place' and identity. The Abensberg tower is actually a very interesting structure in a tiny town. Very late ...  more »
  • My not understanding how a town of minimum dimensions has a tower of an artist so proven. A Brewer is to 'blame'. Is true that the Tower not paste anything with Bavarian sobriety, but perhaps in that same lies its charm. Its colors, its apparently unconnected shapes make estrictamentr necessary to climb to the top and discover the many secrets. Visit to the brewery is a both surreal but at the end you gave with a beer, which is certainly rich veery.

  • After the visit of the Hudertwasser Haus in Viena I was really wondering about his next buildings. So I really enjoyed that stop on the way from Munchen. Nice biergarten.
  • Brilliant trip round the brewery followed by a memorable trip up the tower and a beer in the Biergarten! Good value: great fun, and tasty variety of beers. Hat geschmeckt ☺
  • Artistic valuable place to visit. Landmark of Abensberg.
  • Muß man gesehen haben!
  • WHAT A MESS! €17 for a cheesy would-be Brewery tour with only a pretzel and a tiny beer! What is this please? Hundertwasser would erbosen that a beer tent is on a horizontal surface. Also, what are these electrically missionary dwarfs here! Full coffee ride! I am not pleased! The Guide has nothing but don't have anything to do with beer and Hundertwasser! The Museum is very nice and the beer tastes good.
