Summer is the season of adventure—there is no better time to travel to new destinations. If you’re a beer lover looking for a place where you can have fun, learn about local history and sample some delicious golden lager, consider our brewery in Plzeň.
The Pilsner Urquell brewery is a 90-minute drive from Prague and it is also easily accessible by bus and train. If you are planning a trip to the Czech capital, or even Berlin or Vienna, you will definitely want to swing by! Plzeň has a fascinating history that is intimately bound up with the heritage of our brewery, and you can also visit unique restaurants and Tankovna bars here.
We offer tours of our brewery every day, so you can get a behind-the-scenes look at the brewing process. One of the best parts of the tour takes place in nine kilometres of underground tunnels, the heart of our brewery since 1842. The temperature is always cooler here, so it’s the perfect place to relax on a hot day.
We parallel brew in these cellars, fermenting and lagering Pilsner Urquell just like Josef Groll did. This is just about the only place on earth where you can taste this unfiltered, unpasteurised golden lager. It’s a highlight of the brewery tour, and might just be a highlight of your summer!
