Brewery Food & Drink
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.

  • We need the Hundertwasserhaus and the Hundertwasserhaus in Abensberg. Both buildings are beautiful; You can book a tour and enjoy the delights of the brewery when the weather at the tower.

  • We stumbled upon by accident, heading towards the Danube ... beautiful! Hundertwasser has always been my favorite artist and here expressed his motto "beauty can save the world"! Tip: book your visit to the brewery, because it is the only way we could get to visit the Tower! otherwise you will see like me from outside and from the small beer garden below.

  • Know beer, see building, Hundertwasser building from interested and fun place to be, move to Abensberg 1 hour and a half, from Munich. Give us tour was only available in Germany, but on paper in English. Kindly guide me, or never in trouble and asking, what we had in mind. To the Tower after the building, such as onion head. Was Hundertwasser's view of the world itself. Replace the tickets with ticket pretzels 1 glass of beer, in the beer garden. Beer is very much what it is. You can eat breakfast.

  • 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..
