Vierzehnheiligen is a holy place of pilgrimage set in a beautiful area for hiking. It’s also popular with buses which bring older tourists to such places but who can blame them with a great old Basilika to visit and even greater brewery to have a meal and fine beer.

Founded in 1803 and in the shadow of the Vierzehnheiligen Basilka, Brauerei Trunk gets its share of pilgrims who come to admire not only the church’s majestic interior but also the great dry Nothelfertrunk Dunkles.
This is another place I visited once upon a time. I loved it but never got back there. From the looks of the seasonals I’ve not had and my awful photos, I need to rectify that soon.
