Brewery Museum Dortmund – learn all about brewing beer
Until the eighties a plaque at Dortmund Central Station saying “Welcome to Europe’s No. 1 City of Beer” welcomed tourists to our city. Beer was, and still is, Dortmund's pride and joy (after the BVB football club of course), even though the glory days as the continent’s beer capital and even as the world’s second largest beer producing city have long since passed.
What could be more fitting then than dedicating a museum to barley juice? Exactly: nothing! The Brewery Museum is located in the machine hall of the former Hansa Brewery, on Steiger Strasse, where the Radeberger Group brews and bottles all of its Dortmund beers, and many others too.
At the Brewery Museum you learn pretty much everything you need to know about beer. Discover the history of the art of brewing, from the origins of the drink to the present day. On special tours you can even see real Dortmund beer being brewed.
