  • 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.

  • 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.
