Regensburg: Kuchlbauer's World of Beer

Regensburg: Kuchlbauer's World of Beer
It looks like a tower from another age. After more than 10 years of planning and construction, the Kuchlbauer tower in the grounds of the Kuchlbauer Brewery in Abensberg was completed at the end of 2009. The landmark represents one of the last architectural projects by the world-famous artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser, and it brings together the two worlds of beer and wine. The tower pays homage to Bavaria's beers and its breweries. The Brauerei zum Kuchlbauer is located where the beer originated and has one of the world's oldest brewing rights. With Leonhard Salleck as head of the brewery, the family has now been working in the brewery trade for eight generations. The Kuchlbauer has specialised in brewing wheat beer - known as Weissbier - with the best raw materials right on the doorstep - hops from the Hallertau, malt and wheat from the Bavarian Jura and Gäuboden and water taken from the business's own well. A tour of the Kuchlbauer's world of beers reveals more about the centuriesold history and brewing traditions of the Weissbier specialists. You can trace the development of the art of brewing and in doing so discover more about this centre for beer craft. Visitors see the brewery, its original craft beer cellar and the tower cellar. You can then explore the 35 metre high landmark and, after successfully negotiating the climb, enjoy the fantastic view over Abensberg from the viewing platform. The visit to the world of beers is rounded off with beer tasting and pretzels. The grounds have had another highlight to offer since 2014 - the KunstHausAbensberg. This accessible work of art - planned by the architect Peter Pelikan - houses a permanent Hundertwasser exhibition which provides visitors with a unique insight into the varied life and work of the Austrian artist Friedensreich Hundertwasser. The exhibition includes work from Hundertwasser's original and graphic applied art, and also papers showing his work in the area of architecture.
