A look behind the scenes at our brewery


The Warsteiner bre­we­ry in the Wald­park, one of the most con­tem­pora­ry bre­we­ries in Euro­pe, was, right from the begin­ning, deli­ber­ate­ly desi­gned as a visi­tor-friend­ly bre­we­ry. After all, anyo­ne who takes so much care with brewing a pre­mi­um class Pils­ner is qui­te hap­py to let you look over their shoul­der.

The Warsteiner World is our visi­tor cent­re. Here, you can learn ever­ything about our com­pa­ny and our pro­ducts – in addi­ti­on, it is the star­ting point of our visi­tor rail­way. From here, you can explo­re our bre­we­ry! Our mul­ti­lin­gu­al bre­we­ry tour, which takes about 1.5 hours, is offe­red in Ger­man, Eng­lish and Dut­ch.

Plea­se note that our fil­ling sys­tems some­ti­mes have to under­go main­ten­an­ce and may be clea­ned during nor­mal working hours, and are also not in ope­ra­ti­on on wee­kends and public holi­days.

This is what awaits you on our Brewery Tour

Expe­ri­ence the ori­gins of the Warsteiner bre­we­ry. With over 200 exhi­bits, our brand exhi­bi­ti­on shows high­lights from more than 250 years of brand histo­ry. Old bar­rels, glas­ses and bot­t­les, labels and adver­ti­sing motifs tell of our ear­ly begin­nings and suc­ces­ses of today.

Befo­re you visit the bre­we­ry its­elf, take a seat in the ‘Rota­ri­um’ muse­um cine­ma, our 360° mul­ti­me­dia theat­re. The spe­cial thing about it is the elec­tro­ni­cal­ly-con­trol­led revol­ving plat­form which moves the audi­ence direct­ly to the cur­rent sce­nes, so that you are always right at the heart of the action and are inte­gra­ted into the sto­ry. You can find out ever­ything about us and our over 265 years of brewing tra­di­ti­on.

After the pre­sen­ta­ti­on, you will then take the train across our com­pa­ny pre­mi­ses which covers an area of about 63 foot­ball pit­ches! You will be taken through our Sud­haus and past the fer­men­ta­ti­on tanks; you will see the bott­ling pro­cess, and find out how our beer is trans­por­ted by rail – we actual­ly have our own rail­way siding. A modern on-board infor­ma­ti­on sys­tem exp­lains ever­ything you could want to know in words and pic­tures on lar­ge, flat screens. Plea­se note that our fil­ling sys­tems some­ti­mes have to under­go main­ten­an­ce and may be clea­ned during nor­mal working hours, and are also not in ope­ra­ti­on on wee­kends and public holi­days.

After the bre­we­ry tour is befo­re the ‘pro­duct tes­ting’! At the end, free drinks from the Warsteiner port­fo­lio are offe­red – our com­ple­te pro­duct ran­ge is wai­t­ing for you to dis­co­ver it free-of-char­ge for up to two hours! In addi­ti­on to the drinks, the­re is a deli­cious Sauer­land pota­to stew for you to enjoy.

A visit to our shop is always worth it. Here, you will find sou­ve­nirs and spe­cia­li­ties rela­ting to the Warsteiner bre­we­ry. You can also enter the shop without a boo­ked bre­we­ry tour.
