The Showpiece of the Klosterschenke
Possibly one of the most beautiful and well-visited beer gardens in Bavaria can be found in the courtyard of the baroque monastery buildings. The old tree population, consisting of chestnut and linden trees, some of which hail from the 19th century, provide soothing shade for guests. When all of its chairs are in service, the beer garden can host about 1,100 guests. Such a special beer garden must have a special beer! Our Weltenburger Barock Dunkel is as famous as its home. Visitors and townspeople alike delight in the dark beer, which has maintained its authentic flavour for generations. It is based on our own Jurassic spring water and an ancient brewing recipe in the Benedictine tradition. Master brewer Ludwig Mederer knows just how important such continuity is. After all, the Weltenburg abbey brewery the “oldest abbey brewery in the world.” After a precisely controlled brewing process, the beers are stored in our rock cave at the rear of the brewery building until they have aged. The Weltenburg master brewer can proudly claim that he brews one of the best beers in the world. Multiple national and international prizes speak for themselves. The beer is fresh, only slightly filtered and not pasteurized. Thus, it retains its incomparable, original taste, which is best enjoyed in the atmosphere of our abbey beer garden.
