Katowice: Tyskie Brewery Tour

Discover the brewing process of Tyskie and immerse yourself in the rich history of the brand at the Tyskie Browary Ksiazece Brewing Art Centre. The Centre is located in a historic pearl of regional architecture, a modern brewery where beer has been produced continuously since its founding in 1629. Here, the recipes for Tyskie and Ksiazece beers were created.

On your visit, you’ll learn about the fascinating history of Tyskie Browary Książęce and the strong, multi-generational relationship between the local community and the brewery. You’ll also see replicated historical photos of generations of brewers on the murals, one of which is one of the largest in Poland.
