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.
Brewery Tour with a visitor Railway
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.
