Full description

Enjoy authentic Düsseldorf beer culture and lifestyle on this city walking tour. Sample local microbrews and learn about production as your guide takes you through the process.

Your tour starts in front of the Schloßturm at Burgplatz in the old town of Düsseldorf. In the Brauerei Kürzer, get an insight into the brewing process and see the "beer barrel which is never empty." Sample the non-pasteurized craft beers with unique flavors you could taste blindfolded.

Drink like a local, standing on the street in front of the brewery, and listen as your guide shares stories of the local beer culture. Learn the answers to the eternal questions:

Why is Altbier not an old beer? What or who is a Köbes? Why you don't have to order beer in Düsseldorf? Why are the glasses so small? Where is the "longest bar in the world"? Where did the Neandertaler get its name?

Afterwards, make new friends and reserve a table at one of the breweries, where your tour will end on a high note.

    We were in Dusseldorf at the beginning of May 2022 on a stag party and spent 2 hours on the tour our guide was very knowledgeable of the city and the beers and after the tour for the last few days of our break we ditched the larger and drank the local Altbier instead, both the tour and the Altbier are highly recommended

    The tour manages to perfectly combine information with fun. You neither feel like you're on a "booze spree" nor do you get a lecture about brewing beer. The balance was perfect. We were a group of 17 people and everyone had a great time. Our guide's name was Joshi and he was awesome. Funny and always had the overview. We were very satisfied
