Starkenberger Beer Bath and Brewery

A rare place this, the centuries old Austrian brewery Starkenberger, have built the world's first beer swimming pools. Set into the recesses of their brew castle you can indulge a rather unique form of ‘wellbeing’.

Aside form the usual brewery tour you can now add the beer pool. Residing in the old fermentation brewery, there are a total of seven pools in a Turkish bath style. They are heated and contain 12,000L of water enriched with 300L Biergeläger (remote yeast).

There are beer snacks available pool side as well as stein of the local drop – one wouldn’t want to drink the bath water, would one?
