Verein Deutsches Hopfenmuseum

Logo Förderverein Deutsches HopfenmuseumThe “Verein Deutsches Hopfenmuseum e.V. Wolnzach” is the museum’s association. It was established in 1984 with the aim of setting up a large museum for the history of hop growing in Germany. Currently, the association comprises approximately 260 members including also institutional members. You can become a member, too! Currently the German Hop Museum employs a full-time director who takes care of all matters concerning the museum. Moreover, there are some typists and temporary staff working there. All technical matters are handled by the municipal building yard Wolnzach.
