Weltenburg Travel Guide: 20 reviews and 58 photos

Weltenburg Abbey ariel view

The Benedictine Abbey has been on the river since early 1700's. It was built over 1713-36 and paid for by the wealthy Asam Brothers, who also built Asam Church in Ingolstadt.

Entry into the drinking courtyard

A brewery became famous from the hard work of the monks. It is said to be the oldest monastery brewery in the world. Now the people come and drink; some also eat and do not even pay attention to the church and the reason the abbey was erected--religion. It is time to get drunk for most.

Pros and Cons
  • Pros:Still a great church inside
  • Cons:A down right shame to not recognize religion-not drinking
  • In a nutshell:A short sto here to see the rive rviews
