See the Becher pipeline that connected the individual cellars, ancient barrels, and period bottles adorned with labels that have yellowed with age.

  • The best part is the short movie and tasting at the end.
  • Cute, aromatic, tasting provided, a fun and easy to follow documentary to watch at the end. Really small though. Definitely worth a visit.

  • Guided tours in different languages, there are audio guides (if you do not find yourself in a group in the native language). Short and clear (min 35-40), all on the case. At the end of the 3 tasting of 5 products on the bar you can for 1 euro/shot to try the rest. On a ticket in the museum store discount on 1 litre classic Becherovka-30 CZK. I advise to visit)
