Kuchlbauer-Turm, Abensberg

4.2
#2 of 16 in Breweries in Bavaria
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.

    The brewery, which he built by famous deceased architect to build a tower. Be sure to pay the check. It is beautiful from the inside and the history is also intriguing. They do also in the EN. It's on their site when study exactly. Beer is also good. The price of a ticket was a tasting. In Germany, the limit of 0.5 per mille is allowed while driving, so boldly you can taste. The path here is simple, because there is downhill from the highway (in the direction of Passau in Regensburg)

    The Brewery tour was a pure failure. This was only the Senior Director mentioned a thousand times and made advertising for him. It has nothing to do with a Brewery tour. The question could not answer the leader us after the hop! And then the Dwarfs! All the time we have asked where's the hidden camera! The tower was very beautiful, but also just after the death of Hundertwasser built. The beer was very tasty in a uncomfortable beer garden in which used beer glasses were just dipped in water. We can recommend it definitely for many popular beer and breweries in Bavaria; especially for those interested.

    The Hundertwasser to follow trail of beer at Kuchlbauer was unique. Even my wife, who otherwise never would have participated in a Brewery tour, was thrilled. We have become now real experts of hops and beer and also the wonderful art of Hundertwasser. Climbing his Tower, small has been made not to tower over the local church, was a fantastic experience. Art and the formation of a very human belong together when hundreds water. Who is in the vicinity of Abensberg, should take 2 hours absolutely unforgettable time.

  • Nice place but expensive. You need to pay for the tour and then you are able to go inside the tower. No way to do the opposite. And honestly, for that cost, they could provide at least an small fresh sample. You get inclusive a brezzel and beer but in. The tour a fresh sample would make it better.
  • This place is whacky! The tower and brewery are designed by a famous Austrian artist (Hundertwasser) and the whole complex has his influence (including little dwarves speaking about how beer is made). The tour itself is a relatively standard brewery tour, but the environment is exceptionally unique, making the fresh Weiss beer at the end well worth it.
  • A must do for wheat beer lovers! Beautiful architecture and philosophy combined with a first-in-class brewery. They have guided tours explaining their history, brewing, Hundertwasser's philosophy and it is also entertaining for kids. Around Christmas time they also have their own Christkindlmarkt.
  • Pretty interesting story and cool design. Worth a trip if you are in the area but I wouldn't make a pilgrimage across the country to see it. The kuchlbauer brewery is a bonus and makes a nice selection of weizen.
  • Krazy and smart arhitekt..
