I already visited this brewery in the starting up years, when they actually ran out of beer before the next one was ready. I love to eat a tomato soup with some local cheese and bread. Calm place to relax with some nice choices of...More

The brewery visit takes approximately 45 minutes, more than half of the time it's about the history of the castle and the brewer's family tree. The brewing process is only mentioned quite briefly. The beers at Ter Dolen are great - I especially liked the...More

Nothing special but typically a bike resting spot in the north of Limburg. Good beer. Good food. For a short stop. Also possible for bigger groups.

Hospitality in Limburg is always with a lot of joviality, humor and a lot of coziness. This place is no different. Try the delicious beer, have a cheese plate (the cheese is marinated in their beer) and enjoy the cosy atmosphere of castle Ter Dolen....More
