Ingolstadt Off The Beaten Path: 11 reviews and 30 photos
Abensberg is a small town 30km east of Ingolstadt.
It has a couple of claims to fame which I know of. First, it is the northern end of the Bavarian ?hop? route - the hop growing region. The other is the local brewery. It has become famous by having its re-development planned by the famous Austrian architect Hundertwasser. The end result includes an amazing and distinctive 35 metre high tower.
You could argue about the aesthetics, but it makes its mark. I won?t bother trying to describe it - just look at the pictures.
A tour of the brewery costs ?11 per adult. It?s in German only. The leaflet which explains the tower is available in English. The price includes a free beer and pretzel in the biergarten after the tour.
The brewery specialises in weissbier - beer made with wheat - but has other types as well. I liked the weissbier better than any others I?ve tried, although helles is more my style. We also had a brodzeit in the biergarten - very good too.
The visitor centre has a well stocked gift shop.
The town is located just northwest of the main road between Ingolstadt and Regensburg.
