Brewery Erdinger

A special point of interest for every beer aficionado is vistit to the world's biggest wheat beer (Bavarian: ''Weißbier'') brewery ''Erdinger Weißbräu''. You can experience the brewing process with a little historical introduction to brewing and the brewery, the actual tour through the brewing facilities, the bottling plant, and the huge warehouse. After the tour you can try as many pretzels, white sausages, and as much Erdinger beer you like (included in the tour price). The tours are often completely booked during German holiday weeks, so try to book beforehand.

Zum Erdinger Weißbräu

Typical Bavarian food in a rustic atmosphere. The menu is focused around local dishes, which are neatly arranged. Needless to say, that besides your standard juices and lemonades, the local Erdinger beer is served in this restaurant (the restaurant is in fact owned by the Erdinger brewing company). Reservations are recommended, as on weekend, evenings, and in summer the place fills up very quickly.

Brauerei Gasthof "zur Post"

The plain interior of this restaurant in a historic building hasn't such a cozy feel as the "Erdinger Weißbräu" just around the corner, but is less overdrowded and loud. The restaurant focuses on traditional Bavarian dishes, with ''"Oxenbackerl"'' (cheek of the ox in red wine sauce) as the speciality of the house.

About Erding

The official history of Erding starts in 742, although hints of first settlements go back as far as 2500 BC. The settlement was appointed a city in 1228 by Duke Louis I of Bavaria. During the Thirty Years' War Erding was burned to the ground by the Swedes thrice. The citizens were able to rebuild the city, though, with the help of the newly implemented tax on beer. During the last days of World War II, Erding was bombarded before surrendering to American troops without fighting back. After WWII the city kept growing continuously, and with the opening of Munich Airport, which is located just north of the city, went into a boom, that is still continuing to date.
