  • Great stube, in authentic setting. The Weihenstephan brewery is still authentic and not run over by tourists. It is placed on top of a mountain. The beer garden and restaurant offer a very nice selection of local foods. Unfortunately I cant recommend the schnitzel as it was very buttery and fat. Rest of the food was of good quality and for reasonable prices. Staff is very friendly. The last rebuild was in the eighties and this shows a bit in the interior.
  • Great food and great beer at the oldest brewery in the world. Loved the sausages! Don’t miss it if you’re around Freising!
  • Nice atmosphere and ambient, great food, friendly staff and amazing beer!
  • One of the best beer gardens and breweries you might ever visit! Truly good food and beer. A great view of the Alps from the hilltop above the brewing school on a clear day. Enjoy!
  • WOW, thank the Beer God's for this place and the great meal I will consume... This hilltop location is fantastic! To top things off, it widely considered​ to be one of the oldest continuous operating brewries in the world.
