This was a wonderful brewery tour even though it was not operating at the time. My wife and I do not speak or understand German well enough, so I'm sure we missed some things from the tour, however it was still enjoyable. The entire Rothaus...More

It is a formidable entertainment parc revolving around the Rothaus beer and other alcoholic products (a.o. Whisky). Visit the museum and the brewery, eat in the restaurant and have a beer on the terrace in the sun. For the guided tour of the brewery, plan...More

I've been to several brewery tours before but this is the most informative one ever. The tour comes with a free bagel and a beer and the souvenir shop has plenty of interesting merchandise (their merch luggage was really cool though a bit expensive).

The audio guided supplies a lot of interesting information pieces about the history of the brewery, its connection to the black forest and the brewing procedure. Well designed and maintained- and the beer itself is very good too

We didn't tour the brewery, just ate in the restaurant. Possibly the best meal I've ever had! The steak was so tender and delicious! The vegetables were delicious! Highly recommend it!

We chanced upon this brewery by chance, after seeing lots of establishments with the Rothaus sign outside thought it was worth a stop. As the brewery is apparently the highest in Germany it was no surprise it was snowing as we walked over to the...More

The nearest major airports are Zurich, Stuttgart, possibly Basel. September or October is certainly a good idea for traveling in the Black Forest. I recommend you from Schluchsee a Segway Tour to brewery, there a visit and... More
