Every country has its symbols and legends and the Czech ones include Pilsner Urquell lager which has been brewed in a town called Plzen (Pilsen) since 1842. Since then the fame of Pilsner Urquell beer has spread around the world and, inspired by this exceptional brew, more than two-thirds of the beers produced today are commonly known as pils, pilsner or pilsener. The brewery tour showcases all of the authentic places where Pilsner Urquell lager has been brewed for more than 175 years, and where its story continues today. You will see the heart of the brewery - both the historical and contemporary brewhouse. You will smell and taste the raw materials that are used to brew Pilsner Urquell, and the panoramic cinema will take you through the brewing process. And at the end you will taste unfiltered Pilsner Urquell beer tapped straight from oak lager barrels in the historic brewery cellars.The brewery is open year-round. The journey from Prague takes about one-and-a-half hours and you can either travel on your own by car, bus or train.

As a beer lover, this is a must visit in Plzen. The tour of the bottling factory is impressive. The visit to the cellars is something you'll never forget and the beer you taste that has been brewed the old way is just great. Tour...More

We loved this tour - great guide and although the groups are quite big, it works well getting around to the various parts of the brewery. Well worth it and highly recommended!

In a world of beer experiences, this is the best. You have to love a tour that ends with a delicious glass of cold beer. In a cave.

The tour is excellent from a historical perspective. It also is very informative for beer lovers in regard to the modern operations. The underground cooling and storage tunnels are a nightlight, but beware, it gets a bit chilly. Cheers or Na zdraví!

The best 2 hour tour I've ever taken. We discovered the rich history of Pilsner Urquell beer with a tour around the factory's brewing house, the beer cellars, hi-tech museum displays and our brilliantly humorous tour guide. We finished the tour with a tall glass...More
