For he satisfies the thirsty and fills
the hungry with good things. (Ps. 107:9)

In addition, we also offer varying daily specials and chef’s recommendations
Our Weltenburger Barock Dunkel dark beer is almost as famous as its home. As long as anyone can remember, visitors and locals alike have been enjoying this dark brew. It is pleasant-tasting, full-bodied and has a subtle zest.
After sufficient ageing, it travels along a pipeline from the brewery’s rock cave directly to the tap.
The abbey brewery is the oldest abbey brewery still in operation in the world. In its current form, it is a technical gem whose distinctive features – the abbey’s own Jurassic spring water and an age-old brewing recipe in the Benedictine tradition – culminate in outstanding flavour through a perfect production process.
Abbey Liqueur / Bitters
Weltenburger Klosterlikör (Weltenburg Abbey Liqueur) and Weltenburger Klosterbitter (Abbey Bitters) – two specialities in the Klosterschenke restaurant made according to old recipes – a special, feel-good pleasure!
Our Weltenburger Klosterlikör (Weltenburg Abbey Liqueur) glows in a rich, golden colour – precious saffron threads from the Orient are the significant ingredient. This is combined with centaury, bitter orange peel, cardamom, nutmeg and a few more ingredients (secret recipe) – medicinal herbs, just as they were used for ages in the monasterial pharmacies.
The 42% volume of alcohol heightens the effect of the herbs. The Klosterlikör Abbey Liqueur has a full, zesty herbal flavour and a delicate sweetness with nuances of bitter orange.
Our Weltenburger Klosterbitter (Weltenburg Abbey Bitters) shimmers in reddish-brown, primarily coloured by red sandalwood. Its macerate is prepared with cinchona bark, ginger, bourbon vanilla, angostura and unripe bitter orange – medicinal herbs that promote digestion and are said to have an anti-inflammatory effect.
The Klosterbitter Abbey Bitters also have 42% alcohol, with a flavour of exotic spices and a delicate, refreshingly bitter note.
Coffee and Espresso
The artist brothers Egid Quirin and Cosmas Damian Asam adorn the product labels, their appearance mirroring the way they decorated the abbey church with their own images. In this way, we hope that this souvenir will make you think back fondly to a wonderful day at Weltenburg Abbey, with its Asam church, the Danube Gorge and one of the most beautiful beer gardens in Bavaria, or serve as a small present to bring a smile to your friends and acquaintances.
The espresso we serve is a combination of Arabica beans from South and Central America and top-quality African coffee. Due to its strong aroma and hearty flavour, the magazine Der Feinschmecker awarded this unusual blend with the title of Best Espresso in Germany.
Our coffee is based on a balanced blend of Columbian coffee bean types. It is characterized by a mild acidity, a subtle and delicate aroma and a strong, round taste.
Our delicious, smoked boiled sausage is made according to a traditional Klosterschenke recipe by the Gierstorfer butcher shop in Pfatter, and is very popular among our guests.
Our Abbey Cheese
The Weltenburg Abbey Cheese is made today according to the Klosterschenke’s traditional recipe at a small alpine dairy in the Allgäu region.
This semi-hard cheese made from pasteurized milk gets its pleasantly delicate, spicy flavour from its red smear. It is thus considered to be an excellent cheese to eat with bread, and a perfect match for our Weltenburger beers.
Ice Cream and Cake
Our cakes, layer cakes and homemade ice cream, crafted by our confectioner Gerhard Hopfinger, are extremely popular treats.
He uses fresh fruits and excellent ingredients for his delicious delights.
