Take a step back in time at the Brewery Museum in Plzeň, a professional museum located in a 15th-century house that has been preserved in its original form. Find out a beer-making legend, and reveal the secrets of beer-making, serving, and drinking from the distant past. On your tour, travel through history to medieval times when beer was drunk through a reed. See medieval cellars hidden under a 15th-century brewing house and authentic beer pubs from the beginning of the 20th century. Explore the late Gothic malt shop, which forms an important part of the so-called threshing yard where grain steeping and germination took place. Finally, round off your tour at this unique museum with a glass of Pilsner beer.

Great city tour through Pilsen

The city tour through Pilsen was very interesting. Our guide Martin was very knowledgeable and was able to bring us closer to the history of the city, current developments and Czech culture. He also recommended restaurants, cafes and bars, which we visited during our further stay. The know-how of a true connoisseur pays off here if you want to get to know the insider tips or the preferences of the locals outside of the tourist hotspots. All in all a great tour with valuable tips!

A very good tour. We had a great guide (Martin) who spoke perfect German and was able to answer all our questions about Pilsen
