The Hallertau - Highlights
The Hallertau is the largest hop-growing region in the world. It is located in Bavaria and has been producing hops for over 500 years. We offer a variety of beers brewed with locally grown hops from our farms. You can find them all on our website!
There is a lot to discover. We have selected the best sights and cycling and hiking destinations for you:
Idyllic and developed path Walkersbach - Kemathen
The Walkersbach - Kemathen is an idyllic and developed trail that runs parallel to the highway. It runs along the forest, which means that it is not challenging even for bikers. However, it also offers some beautiful views of the forest with some smaller hill passages.
This is a great place to ride your bike. The road winds through meadows and there is no traffic. There are also no closing days in summer and usually open in winter. Phone +49 (0) 8326-7917.
