Where beer culture is alive
Beer. What do you associate with this drink? A cool glass in a shady beer garden? Memories of convivial evenings with good friends? For those from Freistadt, the hops juice is much more, it is a way of life. It is not for nothing that the town is the last remaining brewery community of Europe. And a fortress of uncompromising beer culture, the like of which can only be seen and experienced here.
The three region corner of Mu?hlviertel-Lower Bavaria – South Bohemia has a reputation as a global beer fortress. The project BeerWorldRegion opens up a new perspective on the topic of beer. More on the topic of beer, the beer expert journey and the project can be found on the page BeerWorldRegion.
Most – the country sour drink of the Upper Austrians
In addition to beer, Most is a popular drink. This is absolutely essential for a refreshment stop at the Most tavern. Most is fermented apple or pear juice and is the national drink of the Upper Austrians, who are therefore known by the honorary title of “Most heads”. In Upper Austria, Most is known as the honorary “national acid”. In the autumn the freshly pressed juice, the sweet Most (non-alcoholic) is drunk as a particular speciality. The meadow orchards where the autumn you can smell the ripe fruit from a long way off. In the Mostmuseum Trosselsdorf (community of Neumarkt) the owners proudly show their family exhibition pieces on the topic of Most production and invite you to try a nice glass. In the exhibition Most plant of Pankrazhofer in Tragwein, Most and juices of the highest quality are produced. The Most sommelier will be pleased to advise you during the tasting.
Unser Tipp: a group excursion with your club, friends or family to the Pankrazhofer in Tragwein with the entertaining show "Wer wird Mostmillionär?", lunch and a guided tour in the Burgenmuseum (castle museum) Reichenstein.
