In the film “Around the World in 80 Days” the inventor Phileas Fogg and his valet Passepartout, played by Jackie Chan, land in the docks of New York. Anyone who has seen the movie will probably never suspect that this scene was shot in a brewery, one of the oldest industrial monuments in Germany, where beer is still produced. Named after the Landeskrone, Görlitz’s “own” mountain, the Landskron brewery has been brewing since 1869 according to a traditional method in which the beer matures for 40 days, significantly longer than usual. The 12 m deep fermentation and storage cellars are listed buildings and can be visited as part of a thematic tour, along with other production areas and the museum, established in 2007 in the director’s villa. From 1997 to 2000 a former pub and later warehouse were converted into a “Culture Brewery”, a venue with an open-air area. In the first year there were 8 events; now there are about 100 a year with recently more than 50,000 guests, not even counting the annual “Brewing Festival”. The visitor centre also provides refreshments. In 2006, Landskron Brewery, located directly on the River Neisse, again went into private ownership, but in the same year lost the title of “Germany's easternmost brewery” to a private brewery a few meters to the east. A matter of give and take – cheers!
