Bike Touring Highlight
Bavarian Beer in Prussia: This brewery was built right outside the city gate by Bavarian brewmaster Joseph Pfeffer, a pioneer of industrial beer production who brought the recipe for bottom-fermented lager beer to Berlin. The beer garden operated continuously down to World War I. Schultheiss acquired the brewery in 1919, and beer production ceased in 1921. The production facility was later home to a chocolate factory, a wholesale bakery, and, after World War II, the publisher Neues Deutschland. Today it is a center of art and culture and boasts various accommodation and nightlife options. A new brewpub is once again serving up beer brewed on the premises. The buildings of the former Königsstadt (1850) and Bötzow (1876) breweries are located just around the corner on Saarbrücker Straße.
