Discover the world of beers from Luxemburg at the Brasserie Nationale (Bofferding & Battin)

Discover Luxembourg’s history through beer.
Luxembourg is home to all kinds of cultural, historical, gastronomic, geographical, and agricultural treasures. Did you know it has a national brewery too? Beer lovers rejoice! The national brewery, Bofferding & Battin, offers fascinating tours and, of course, plenty of beer. A professional guide will share the history behind this centuries-old family brewery and walk you through the stages of the beer production process. You’ll learn how beer is made, discover its many different varieties and enjoy an exciting history of the Grand Duchy. And since all this knowledge is sure to make you thirsty, the two-hour visit ends with a tasting of 100% natural beers. The little ones can taste the pure water from the well—it’s not nearly as delicious, but...shhh!

A new circuit for an even more fascinating visit. A real interactive and multimedia show. Discover: the vats in which the master brewer skilfully mixes the water, malt, hops and yeast; the froth flotation tanks where the young beer matures for several weeks; the filling and labelling of bottles and barrels. Continue your visit with the Museum, bearing witness to over two centuries of brewing, and end it in our friendly refreshment room, where we offer you the opportunity to taste our 100% natural Bofferding beer.

New visits allow you to dive even deeper into the secrets of the national brewery: Brew your own beer in the "BrauAtelier" microbrewery, get down to a tasting or learn how to tap properly - and of course, the guided tour of the brewery where find out more about what makes these beers so special.
