Visitors to the Stiegl Brewery can buy tickets to either explore the brewhouse on a guided tour or independently. Whichever you choose, you’ll trace the story of Stiegl, starting at a 270-degree cinema that brings the brand’s raw materials and bottling processes to life before visiting the in-house brewery, tasting cellar, and museum. Guided tours end with beer tastings and all visitors can opt to finish at the brewery’s restaurant, tavern, beer garden, and shop.
Consider pre-booking brewery admission to save yourself hassle and guarantee your entry on your preferred day. Alternatively, purchase a Salzburg Card sightseeing pass that includes admission alongside entry (complimentary or discounted) to many other city attractions. Visitors pressed for time may want to book a Salzburg sightseeing tour that includes a brewery visit.

Traveling by cab or self-drive car are other options: from Salzburg station, follow Jahnstrasse, Haunspergstrasse, Gaswerkgasse, Lindhofstrasse, Zillnerstrasse, Josef-Gruber-Gasse, and Brauhausstrasse, where you’ll spot the brewery on the right.

When to get there
The Stiegl Brewery is open daily with in-house tours operating several times each day. While the brewery can be busy during peak season, especially on summer weekends, it’s usually uncrowded. For the quietest environment, aim to arrive early or late on a weekday. The restaurant and beer hall stay open till late throughout the year.
Dining, Drinking, and Shopping at the Stiegl Brewery
If you fancy refueling after your brewery tour, quench your thirst with a cold Stiegl in the brewery’s beer garden or Braustuberl tavern, which is set in the restored fermenting cellar. Alternatively, head for the Paracelsusstube restaurant to savor classic Austrian food washed down with beers. Round things off at the Braushop; pick up souvenirs like specialty Stiegl brews and Stiegl-branded pottery stein mugs.
