KALTENBERG CASTLE

BIRTHPLACE OF ROYAL BAVARIAN BEER


Since 1871, beer has been brewed in the cellars of Kaltenberg Castle according to the family's brewing tradition. When Prince Luitpold took over the management of the brewery in 1975, he succeeded in expanding the range of beers in an attractive way that simultaneously met the demands of tradition, modernity and the highest quality. Beer connoisseurs all over the world can taste that here the master brewers still take personal care of our valuable raw materials to guarantee the highest product quality. Prinz Luitpold himself regularly tastes the freshly brewed beers to ensure they meet with his personal approval.

A ROYAL RESIDENCE

PRIVACY AND BREWING BUSINESS SIDE BY SIDE


Kaltenberg Castle is not only an historical work of art, but also a very lively place. All the threads of royal life come together here. The castle is both the private residence of Prince Luitpold and the the seat of brewing operations. And like all the Wittelsbacher Regents and Kings before him, he understands his royal descent as an obligation to an authentic and responsible way of life. He also appreciates the proximity to the beer cellars, where he can get really good beer directly from the source.

PLACE OF CULINARY PILGRIMAGE

FINE PLEASURE IN ROYAL AMBIANCE


Kaltenberg Castle is, of course, a popular place of pilgrimage for beer lovers but besides "liquid pleasure" it also offers excellent Bavarian cuisine. Depending on individual taste and the weather, you can enjoy hearty local dishes in the idyllic beer garden or in the cosy "Ritterschwemme" and, in the upper rooms of the castle, the "Bräustüberl restaurant" invites you to Bavarian fine dining in a royal ambience. Wherever you enjoy your meal, you will always get Royal Bavarian beer directly from the castle's beer cellar.

CULTURAL EVENT LOCATION

KALTENBERGER RITTERTURNIER AND MAGICAL FESTIVALS


As used to be customary in castles, festivals and colourful market activities are still part of Kaltenberg castle life today. Once a year, visitors of all generations are invited to a fabulous medieval festival with jugglers, music, arts and crafts. The crowning highlight is the great Jousting Tournament, during which daring riders perform a magnificent action show. Besides this famous event, throughout the year various other festivals, including one of the most romantic Christmas markets in Bavaria, attract visitors from far and near to the castle grounds.

Important note: Due to the Corona virus pandemic, unfortunately the festivals and the Kaltenberg Jousting Tournament cannot be held as planned. We’ll keep you informed and look forward to welcoming you again whenever this will be possible.
