Beer has been a traditional beverage for thousands of years. In the course of a few decades, however, the industrial production has led us to forget that we can brew beer ourselves, just like it used to be customary in many households – and, of course, at Burg Vischering, too. For that purpose, there was a special baking and brewing house here. For some years now, home brewing is celebrating an enjoyable renaissance, and there are more and more enthusiastic fans. After all, homemade beer tastes good and brewing it is fun! In our brewing workshop, we particularly want to focus on historical brewing ingredients and beers, without losing sight of its “drinkability”. In January, we will begin with a Belgian light ale. In March, mild wheat beer with oak-smoked wheat malt will be brewed. In June, we will enjoy a Belgian Wit.

A bit rushed and weary, Steward Adolph Heidenreich Wernekinck sets out on a search. He is looking for a certain small note. His wife has made him take some curious relatives along, who had always wanted to know what life in the castle was like. The masters of the house are not at home – so a glance behind the scenes may be dared. And now the steward doesn’t mince his words and readily talks about festivities, marital duties and wrongdoings of the common people. Join the steward on his walk through the venerable rooms of Vischering Castle and learn interesting details about the history of the castle and life therein and around it at the end of the 17th century.
