Wolnzach (German pronunciation: [ˈvɔlntsax], locally [ˈvɔɪntsɔ(x)]) is a municipality in the district of Pfaffenhofen in Bavaria, Germany. It is also a "seal district" ("Siegelbezirk") of the hop-planting area Hallertau, and home of important hops-related institutions such as the German Hops Museum ("Deutsches Hopfenmuseum") and the Hop Research Center Hüll.
