Starkenberg Beer Adventure World

Tarrenz, located in the holiday area of Imst, offers a particular Beer Adventure World with plenty of secrets.

Starkenberg Castle, built in the 14th century by the Knights of Starkenberg, still rises in Tarrenz, and offers a brewery and a special world of experience today. The "Starkenberger", a beer brewed according to the Bavarian purity law from 1516, is produced here. It is the most-awarded beer of Austria, rewarded with 40 gold medals of the "Monde-Selection", whereas the Starkenberg Brewery itself was elected the "Most popular Tyrolean brewery 2020".

Here you can immerse into the Starkenberg Beer Adventure World called Starkenberg Beer Myth: All manner of interesting things about the long art of brewing tradition, which started already in 1810 here, are shown on 4,000 sqm. The 700 metres long round tour leads through 18 rooms, including the Panorama Room with a gorgeous view on the Gurgltal, the medieval arches, the brewhouse with the copper kettles, the ice cellar from the 16th century, and the modern brewery.

The highlight of the Starkenberg Beer Myth is the Beer Bath in the old fermentation cellar. It is the first beer swimming pool in the world, designed by the artist Wernfried Poschusta. 12,000 litres of water and 300 litres of beer yeast are filled into the pool. The healing effect of the yeast has been known for a long time for who suffers from psoriasis and other skin diseases.
