  • Unfortunately Weihenstephan is becoming more and more for tourists, so the prices are somewhat higher than anywhere else.

  • I went there one evening moving towards Nuremberg. Very good beer which I believe is made by themselves, I've seen exiting the factory behind the restaurant. Very large with two rooms, a dining room and a just for beer-tasting. Costumed staff and good food. Recommended.

  • Definitely a place you should visit if you are in the vicinity. Got a guided tour, which was really good. Super beer and good food at the restaurant. Control has just too busy.

  • Take the brewery tour and top it off with lunch or dinner and a good fresh beer or 2. The tour is informative and fun - with a tasting at the end. For a beer lover, this is a must do! The oldest continuously operating brewery in the world. Established in 1040 AD.
  • Really nice place, atmosphere and food. If you want to live typical Bavarian experience with food and beer this is the right place. Thanks to the staff
  • Really good place, nice stuff, food is good the stuff is nice, everything petfect
  • Awesome beer garden serving not only one of the best beers but also tasty food. The menu lists smaller as well as full-fledged lunch courses and seasonal dishes. Close by is a shop selling beer crates and merchandise.
  • Love the beer, come for the education of beer making, stay for the loss of memory after drinking so much delicious beer.
