Full description
Visit one of Germany's biggest and oldest absinthe bars for an exclusive absinthe tasting. In contrast to a pub crawl, you'll discover the world of absinthe in a more relaxed atmosphere. Learn interesting facts from your expert hosts who have produced absinthes in collaboration with Germany's oldest absinthe manufacturer. From Monday to Saturday, absinthe tastings start at 7 PM. On Sundays, the tasting starts at 8 PM. Be greeted by your host and start with a short introduction to the history of absinthe ranging from its origins to the growth across the world. Learn 3 different rituals along and sample 4 different types of absinthe each from a different European country. At the end of the tasting, each participant will receive a special absinthe spoon as a souvenir from their host. If interested, get a small or big bottle of absinthe to take back home as a memory of this unique experience. All bottles are suitable to be carried during travels.

    Strange event. Booked in German, was alone in the bar with an English speaking American only. He was waiting for the German guide and no other guests came. So it started. I had a good idea of the topic but because of his fast English and my rusty school English a lot of information was left behind. When two pretty Australians came as bar guests, his interest in tasting was only a minor matter. Tried a lot, but not everything met.
