Starting June 3, 2019, guided tours of Rugenbräu will take place daily from 4:00 - 5:00 pm. CHF 12.- per person, no registration necessary. We look forward to seeing you!
The tours are offered in cooperation with "Interlaken Walking Tours".
"Demand for tours of our brewery and distillery has risen sharply," confirms Remo Kobluk, Managing Director of Rugenbräu AG. Time and again, the traditional brewery on the Rugen registers inquiries from individual persons from the region as well as from tourists interested in a visit. "It quickly became clear to the Rugenbräu team that we wanted to make it possible to take a look behind the scenes," Kobluk continues. After initial clarifications, the idea was deepened and the offer was worked out in detail. The brewery tours will be conducted by Rugenbräu's own guides and by guides from the company Interlaken Walking Tours. Alessandra Martinelli, CEO at Interlaken Walking Tours, is looking forward to the collaboration: "Interlaken Walking Tours is run by students from the region. All of our guides grew up in Interlaken and the surrounding area and want to give special moments and stories to interested people." Asked TOI director Daniel Sulzer: "For the destination, the new offer is a nice addition, local products interest the guests."
