Visit to DAB in Dortmund
The Radeberger Gruppe KG is the largest German brewing group with headquarters in Frankfurt am Main and a subsidiary of the Oetker Group. The group produces beer and soft drinks in 16 locations. DAB is part of this group with brands like Kronen, Dortmunder Union, DAB, Brinkhoff’s, Hansa, Hövels, Ritter, Thier, Stifts, Wicküler, Andreas Pils, Schlösser Alt.
A tour of the Dortmunder Actien brewery is something for everyone who has always wanted to know how beer in Dortmund is made, bottled and then put in their beer glass. A film at the start of the tour shows how, in the age of complex and high-tech production, Dortmund beers are still brewed according to original recipes and the purity law of 1516. All production stages are presented, from the intake of raw materials to the brewery house and bottling up to 140,000 bottles per hour until loading.
Visit to Dr. Oetker World including R&D meeting
Everything about the famous and fascinating brand Dr. Oetker can be experienced by visitors in the Dr. Oetker World. Nine rooms, with different topics illustrate the path of products from raw materials to finished goods that can be sold and give direct insight in the world of Dr. Oetker and in the history of the brand.
The IFFI program includes a two-hour, guided, interactive tour with a break in our pudding wonder. Afterwards there will be tastings from our assortments of pizza, dessert and cake and the possibility of dr. med. Oetker World Shop for browsing.
Dinner at Castle Sparrenburg
High above the town on the Sparrenberg hill sits imposing Sparrenburg Castle. Its mighty fortifications are located right next to one of the most beautiful ridge walks in Germany, the 156km Hermannsweg.
Constructed in the mid 13th century by the Counts of Ravensberg, the castle was administrative centre and residence of the county sovereign, and protected the town and trade routes through the Bielefeld pass. It was rebuilt many times. Sparrenburg Castle gained its present outline in the middle of the 16th century. A vast 300m system of underground passages can be explored from April to October, and visitors can enjoy panoramic views over the town Panorama and surrounding countryside as well as a nice dinner.
Executive Council members have received a personal invitation by e-mail. Please contact Halbe Vogel for more information.
