Augustiner Brewery and the Tavern in Salzburg

Austria boasts centuries-old traditions in beer production. Salzburg has many good places to enjoy the malty drink, but one stands out—the Augustiner Bräu Kloster Mülln.


It's a popular tavern where locals like to socialize and relax over a pint. The Monks' Beer is a drink that creates a friendly and warm atmosphere, making it a fun and peaceful place to be. The Augustin Beer Hall is loved for its simplicity, quality and accessibility. It's a great place to spend time with family and friends. The garden has a small slide and tables for children to play on. Besides beer, there are many non-alcoholic drinks on tap.  

The Augustiner brewery produces only one type of beer all year round, called Märzen, and two seasonal types: strong Bock and malty Fasten. The Benedictine monastery of Michaelbeuern is the majority owner of the brewery and has control over the institution's policy. As a result, the price of beer here is the lowest in Salzburg.

The Augustiner Tavern and Brewery is not a typical restaurant with a menu and a waiter. What sets it apart from others is that customers are allowed to bring their own food. Many locals take advantage of this by bringing their own snacks. In addition, there are many food shops lining the halls that offer a wide range of delicious snacks that will make your mouth water with hunger. When buying food, you need to go to the shop and pay it directly. When buying beer, go to the shelves, grab a beer stein half or one liter, pay at the counter only in cash, and with the receipt, go to the tap to have the stein filled.

Anyone can visit the Augustin Beer Hall, but the production workshops are not open to the public. However, I can organise an exclusive tour of the production for groups of at least 10 people. On weekdays, the brewmaster leads the tour. After the tour, guests receive a half-liter stein with the brewery's symbols, a coupon for a free beer, and a pretzel. 

 The beer halls are quite spacious, but reserving a table beforehand for groups of travelers is recommended. The place tends to get crowded, especially on weekends. For groups of 15 or more people, I can arrange a separate room for lunch or dinner, along with a buffet and a barrel of beer. Cheers! (Prost)

The Augustin Brewery's opening hours are from 3:00 PM to 11:00 PM every day except December 24, 25, 31, and January 1, when it is closed.
