What always strikes me about Weihenstephan is the ambiance of the place. Apart from all the first-quality equipment that sits around the enormous brewery, I do feel as if I were traveling in time back to the pre-Middle Ages. Combining a Brewery visit with a...More

Weihenstephan is where you find what is recognised as the oldest brewery in the world in Freising. Presently this is the grounds of a brewery university and it can be a bit tricky to find the famous beerhall and beer garden. As such, best to...More

A lot of reasons to visit this biergarten. Apparently, it is the oldest "continously operated" biergarten in the world. Even so, it has a pretty modern touch, and the environment is quite upscale as far as biergartens go. For a night out with friends, or...More

Lovely walk through the gardens. Great views of Freising and Munich with the countryside beyond. Must stop at the beer garden to sample a Wienstephaner beer!

We had limited time for a visit, so we opted to taxi to Weihenstephan instead of bus/train. The plave has great beer and food available. Being a beer geek, this was a must stop for us on our way home from a great Amsterdam/Belgian vacation.

Weihenstephan got their license, to legally brew beer, back in the year 1040. You read it 1040! This makes the brewery the oldest in the world and they are still located at the same hill, with no attention to leave....ever. The brewery do tours but...More

The tour was all in English - You should not have any difficulty at all! We did not spend a lot of time in the town as we were coming for just the tour from Munich.
