1. Eggenberg Brewery
This old brewery has a huge restaurant where you can get traditional meals at a price so affordable you can go back for seconds! Some dishes to try are the dumplings, goulash and the ‘Svickova’ which is roast beef in a light gravy sauce, with cranberry jam and whipped cream – absolutely delicious. Another good reason to go is that the local beer the Eggenberg, tastes best straight from the brewery.
