Overview
More
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.

If you’re in Pilsen you can’t miss the brewery tour! Find out why the people are so proud of their beer! We had a wonderful tour guide, and the information is really great! There’s even a restaurant on the premises after you’ve finished the tour.

Great tour experience! The guide felt a bit scripted, but the facilities definitely made up for it. They take you through the entire manufacturing process. You even get to see the cellars and try the beer before it gets pasteurized and filtered. For the price...More
