A lot of reasons to visit this biergarten. Apparently, it is the oldest "continously operated" biergarten in the world. Even so, it has a pretty modern touch, and the environment is quite upscale as far as biergartens go. For a night out with friends, or...More

A trip to the oldest operating brewery in the world is worth the visit; ~30-40 min east of the Munich Airport and not difficult to locate. They have a small store to purchase beer and other items. We had lunch in the restaurant; the ambiance...More

The tour was all in English - You should not have any difficulty at all! We did not spend a lot of time in the town as we were coming for just the tour from Munich.
