Valmiermuižas Beer Tour
Valmiermuižas Beer Tour (Dzirnavu iela 2, Valmiermuiža) – for those beer lovers interested in learning about the art of beer brewing, it’s worth while to visit the Valmiermuižas beer plant (located in the town of the same name, 111 km., or 1 ½ hour drive northeast of Riga – via Routes A3 and E264). Like various regional brands, this one goes as far back as 1624. Due to Valmiermuiža’s proximity to the road leading from Western Europe to St. Petersburg, the manor was visited by a number of European monarchs including Sigismund, King of Poland; Carl XII, King of Sweden; Louise, Queen of Prussia; and Catherine the Great, Empress of the Russian Empire, as well as other aristocratic guests.
Tickets: €5.69 per person. Duration of the tour: 1 ½ hours (conducted in English, German, Latvian and Russian). Advanced bookings must be made via phone (+371 20264269) or email: firstname.lastname@example.org
