About Kaltenberg

Kaltenberg castle was first built in 1290 by a direct ancestor to the current owner Prinz Luitpold von Bayern. Today it is a centre piece of modern culinary enjoyment in a Royal ambiance. This is based on a brewery installed in the caste cellars in 1871. HRH Prinz Luitpold von Bayern has selected Kaltenberg castle as the center of his private and professional life. For this reason, Kaltenberg castle is recognized as the last commercial brewery in a Royal residence.
All beers from the Kaltenberg castle are brewed under the strict quality control of HRH Prinz Luitpold von Bayern and his technical team. Only those breweries are allowed to brew Kaltenberg beers which guarantee compliance of all Royal Bavarian brewing standards and specifications. The monthly control by Bavarian brew-masters and the steady degustation and taste approval under the supervision of HRH Prinz Luitpold von Bayern lead to many international quality gold medals of breweries licensed by Konig Ludwig International.
