Already at the time of Mozart, the city of Salzburg hosted about 13 different beer breweries. Till today Salzburg’s old town is not only telling a unique story of beer drinking culture by numerous names and varieties of breweries, but invites its guests to stay and enjoy the traditional beers in its picturesque beer gardens, pubs and historical restaurants.  

But why is beer so popular in Salzburg? This themed tour will not only take you to the hidden gems of restaurants and beer gardens, it even reveals the secrets behind the success story of beer in Salzburg. Did you know, for example, that women actually started the brewing tradition in Salzburg? Where does the name Stiegl come from? Who were the “Untersberg water horsemen” and what is their connection to beer?

However, the simple talking about beer certainly is not enough to experience the beer culture of Salzburg. Depending on the season and weather the 3-hours walking tour includes the stop-off for refreshments in one of the city’s oldest pubs or beer gardens, where you will enjoy a glass of beer (0,3l) and an original Brezel.

This tour is offered for maximum 20 persons and will be arranged by a licensed (beer) - guide.
