The city of Würzburg has many world-famous sights to offer. First and foremost, the Residenz with its courtyard garden. A truly magnificent baroque building, which has stood on the edge of the city center since 1744 and has been a Unesco World Heritage Site since 1981. The history of Würzburger Hofbräu, on the other hand, goes back even further. The brewery was founded in 1643. Even today, the brewery founded by Prince-Bishop Johann Philipp von Schönborn can still call itself the oldest company in the city. A long tradition, age-old recipes and the knowledge of the brewmasters passed down from generation to generation make Würzburg Hofbräu Pilsener almost a legend. Then as now, the prince-bishop's crown adorns the striking brewer's star and the logo of Würzburger Hofbräu.
The Würzburger Hofbräukeller
Guest rooms with a rustic ambience and large tables as well as a beautiful beer garden invite you to linger. Chestnut trees, as befits a good beer garden, and a view of the city distinguish the restaurant. Franconian regional cuisine and of course the complete range of brewery specialties provide for the culinary well-being of the visitors. For connoisseurs of the blond barley juice and a good middle-class cuisine an absolute must.
The Würzburger Hofbräu and the Kiliani
In the Zellerau district, at the foot of the Marienberg fortress, lies the headquarters of Würzburg Hofbräu. Not far from there, once a year, on a large square called Talavera, the Kiliani takes place. Here, Würzburger Hofbräu operates the imposing Kiliani festival tent together with a family of innkeepers. A festival beer is brewed especially for this time, which is available exclusively during the period of the fair. The offer in the festival tent includes not only the extraordinary festival beer, but also all kinds of culinary and musical highlights. If you happen to be in town during the two weeks of the festival in July, don't miss it!
