  • You certainly know the brand. Come and taste it fresh from the barrel. Nice trip for enthusiasts. Good tourist service, shop and restaurant 
  • We visited the brewery. The guided tour of the brewery is very attractive. You see all the production premises by BREW House, the bottling, the wine cellars tasting area. Inside the brewery there is also great restaurant but they have not managed to prove. If you cannot visit pilsner this structure. Highly recommended!

  • Enjoyed the tour. Was great value and tasting the beer from the oak barrels was something ive been waiting on for quite some time. It was fortunate to have my GF's beer as well.
  • Very nice tour of the brewery. You really have to taste the Pilsner straight from oak cask. There's the main courtyard where you can have drinks and snacks, sometimes events are being held here. The 5th of october is a big annual celebration day here.
  • The tour is a good time. Very informative and really takes you behind the scenes of this unique brewery. The beer tasting is very exciting in the caves. The food I. The restaurant is also quite tasty. Highly recommend a day trip from Prague to this brewery.
  • I was surprised at how great this tour was. I wasn't the biggest fan of Pilsner Urquell until I took the tour and found out how much work goes into making this refreshing beer. The tour was great and incredibly informative. It ends with a tour of the lagering tunnels under the grounds of the brewery which will blow your mind. Well worth the nominal fee for the tour, and an easy stop-over on your way to Prague.
  • Cool to see it, the grounds are nice and the place is huge. The local restaurant here is similar to the same chain in Prague. Food and service were good, beer was better :)
