Welcome to the national museum of the art of brewing.

This museum was set up in 1999 with the support of the commune of Wiltz and the Brotherhood of Gambrinus.

The "Syndicat d’initiative", the tourist office of Wiltz, manages the site and the collections.

The museum comprises 5 rooms:

The historical pub

The ingredients of beer

A brief history

The production of beer

The tannery



Luxemburg’s first and only brewery museum

The grand Duchy of Luxembourg can look proudly on a centuries-old brewing tradition. Located in Wiltz, the Simon Brewery is one of the few which remain in Luxembourg family ownership. In addition to that, in the surrounding Upper Sûre Nature Park, spelt is grown from which a tasty strong beer is produced. So there were reasons enough to create Luxembourg’s first and only Brewery Museum in the nostalgic setting of the stables at Wiltz Castle.

Exhibits not only throw light on more than 6000 years of beer production history but also document the outstanding developments which have taken place in brewing in the Grand Duchy. Unique items on display give a fascinating insight into a world where the rulers are water, hops and malt.
