The Hallertau (also Holledau or Hollerdau) is a cultural landscape in the middle of Bavaria. With 2,400 km² it is the largest contiguous hop-growing area in the world. About 86 % of the German hops and about 34 % of the hops processed worldwide are produced here.
The Hallertau extends over the Bavarian administrative districts of Upper and Lower Bavaria to parts of the districts of Pfaffenhofen, Freising, Kelheim, Landshut, Eichstätt and Neuburg-Schrobenhausen.
If you´re into beer culture, this area in Germany is defintely for you.
