Region - In terms of landscape, it is a picture book

There is so much to say about the “wild hill” of the “Holledau”, as the Hallertau is known locally – about hop cultivation, customs and naturally about the beer. The countryside is like a picture postcard, especially in summer when the eye wanders over the extensive fields of hops punctuated by yellow fields of rape.

The regions close to the Danube are very different: the river alternates from being a powerful current, to becoming almost a dreamy oxbow lake - and then the enchanting Weltenburg Narrows. A landscape crying out to be painted with its steep rocky cliffs on which castles perch, forested hills, meadows, lowland forests ...

Natural spectacles that provide the framework for the landscape. Wolnzach and Mainburg are the centres of global hop growing, the Roman bathing culture of Bad Gögging, the Altmühl Valley with its palaces and castles and of course the many breweries (as beer is almost brewed everywhere here). Experience among other things how hops are made into beer on a guided tour through the “Zum Kuchlbauer” brewery in Abensberg.
