Look forward to the Ayinger Beer Experience with us!
Come and have a look behind the scenes of one of Europe’s most advanced breweries. Discover the secret of our multi-awarded and acclaimed beer specialties. Although beer brewed according to the Purity Law contains so few ingredients, the product and the brewing process themselves are highly sensitive. Each degree of temperature, each yet so small deviation in the water quality, the maturity of the hops, the finely harmonized roasting of the malt, the fermentation process – all of these factors ultimately determine the quality of the liquid gold. It really is an art and craft in equal measure to precisely align the individual factors as accurately as possible. Let yourself be guided through an extremely interesting and entertaining brewing experience.
The aptly-named “Beer Culture Experience” incorporates a wonderful combination of “beer experience” with a brewery guide guide and beer tasting followed by hospitality with deliciously fresh brewery delicacies, such as the Ayinger snack plate with oven-fresh pretzels, “Wammerlrollbraten” (pork belly roast) with dark beer sauce or Hanni’s special pork roast.
Served in style and, as you’ll soon notice, with charm among the shining brewing kettles of the “Schalander” brewhouse.
The Beer Culture Experience is primarily designed for groups, which, of course, should please be punctual for this extra-special pleasure. For families, individuals and couples we recommend our “Frühschoppen” (Sunday pint after mass), which takes place regularly in the Schalander.

No other region in Bavaria features so many old villas and manor-houses. After the Chiemsee, the Starnberger See is the second largest lake in Bavaria. It is therefore much loved and admired by swimmers, sailors, surfers and other watersports lovers alike.

After the Chiemsee and the Starnberger See, the Ammersee is the third largest lake located entirely in Bavaria and is the northernmost lake in the foothills of the Alps.
The Ammersee is located in the Fünfseenland, which means “Area of Five Lakes”. The four other lakes from which the area derived its name are the Starnberger See, the Wörthsee, the Pilsensee and the Wesslinger See. The Ammersee is not only among the most famous tourist attractions in Bavaria but also a favourite recreation area for the inhabitants of the nearby towns of Munich and Augsburg. Especially in summer, the Ammersee is a lively and buzzing place.

The Zugspitze, at 2,962 metres, is the highest mountain in Germany. It belongs to the Wetterstein range in the northern Kalkalpen and is on the border between Germany and Austria. Its name is derived from the numerous avalanches that occur on its northern slopes.
The Zugspitze is the main peak of the Zugspitz massif. Other peaks belonging to this massif are: Schneefernerkopf, Wetterspitzen and Gatterl (2,023 m). The Zugspitz massif is also the meeting point for the Wetterstein main ridge (on the border between Austria and Germany), the Blasse ridge and the Waxenstein ridge. Two German glaciers are located inside this massif: the Schneeferner and the Höllentalferner.

THE ALPS IN CLOSE PROXIMITY
Distance from hotel: 80.0 km
The Alps are the highest mountain range in Europe. They stretch in a 1 200-kilometre curve with a width of between 150 and 250 kilometres from the Mediterranean to the Pannonian Basin.
There are some highlights in the Zugspitze area, such as the crystal-clear Eibsee, with a depth of almost 1 000 metres, the narrow Partnachklamm (a canyon) or the world-famous capital of German winter sports, Garmisch-Patenkirchen. The adjoining mountain landscapes, the Ammergauer Alpenwelt, Alpenwelt Karwendel and the Blaue Land also have much to recommend them. The strong and clear colours of the lakes and mountains in front of the mighty panorama of the Alps inspired Kandinsky and other painters of the “Blue Rider” group of artists. Even today, they offer an unforgettable experience, whether on bicycle or on walking tours.

Ludwig II., King of Bavaria from 1864 onwards, addressed the following lines to Richard Wagner, whom he much admired:
“It is my intention to rebuild the old castle ruin of Hohenschwangau near the Pöllat Gorge in the authentic style of the old German knights’ castles, and I must confess to you that I am very much looking forward to living there one day (in 3 years’ time); there will be several cosy, habitable guest rooms with a splendid view of the noble Säuling, the mountains of Tyrol and far across the plain; you know the revered guest I would like to accommodate there…”
In 1886, seven weeks after the death of King Ludwig II, Neuschwanstein was opened to the public. The reclusive king had built the castle as a refuge from the public. Today, Neuschwanstein is Bavaria’s foremost attraction.

LINDERHOF CASTLE AND PARK
Distance from hotel: 158.5 km
Ludwig II, who was crowned king in 1864, began his building activities in 1867/68 by designing his rooms in his Munich Residence and laying the foundation stone of the palace of Neuschwanstein. As early as 1868, Ludwig II developed the first building projects for the Linderhof. He set his sights on the former hunting lodge of his father, Maximillian II, which was then located in the former castle’s forecourt, and which Ludwig II had already become accustomed to as a crown prince when he had gone hunting with his father. Linderhof was developed over long periods of construction and modification. It was the only castle that was completed during his lifetime.
