The tunnels above the city were once homes and streets. The museum does provide audio guides just in case the tour in your preferred language is not available. Exploring the tunnels below, you will also learn about what life was like, including diets, tools, and the class divide that existed. This is a cool tour, so if you love history,... More

The underground is very interesting to see. Plus you will get a free beer to the ticket. Moreover, if you buy the entrance to the beer museum, you will even get 25% discount and another beer.

The Underground tour is a must if you visit Pilsen. Our guide was very knowledgeable and also has a sense of humor - making learning the history of the place very enjoyable! We didn't realize there was so much going on there and all the historical anecdotes of how people lived back then. It was eye-opening and better than I... More

When in Pilsen dont forget to look under the surface. The underground tour (starting at the brewery museum) is a must do. A plethora of tunnels stretch under Pilsens many square. Relics going back to the middle ages have been unearthed. How they dug these tunnels by hand starting in the 14th century is amazing.

I really enjoyed this tour. You have to go in a group - there are miles of tunnels so you could easily get lost otherwise. The tour lasted about an hour. The guide was excellent, really funny and with lots of information about why the tunnels were built and what they were used for. There's quite a lot of walking... More

The 1-hour underground tour was very interesting. You have to don a hard-hat, and I was glad because several times I hit my helmet on a low section of the tunnels. It was interesting hearing about how they were used during the Middle Ages and wars. At the end of the tour you get a free beer voucher – no... More

The underground is a must visit in case you find yourself in Plzen. The tour was very educative and the guide tried to cover everything. We were lucky to have our guide a little bit tipsy so she kept us in a good mood. The roof is very low so watch out your head. Enjoy.

It was fascinating to know that Plzen got an extensive network of underground tunnels for hundreds of years. Learning the history of the city was also enlightening. Be warned of the wet grounds and the occasional low ceiling that hit my head several times, luckily visitors were asked to wear protective helmets. The good thing was that we got free... More

The tour was educative with facts about the daily life of citizens of Pilsen during the medieval times. It was interesting and long just enough but there is really not much to see or anything special about this underground. On the other hand it is not that expensive and it's a good thing to do during the rain or extreme... More
