Description

The city of Pilsen has lots to offer. First of all, it is a beer-brewing Mecca of the world - the first pilsner lager was born there. On the trip, you will enjoy a guided tour through Pilsner Urquell brewery finished by a tasting session of unfiltered beer, tapped from oak barrels (admission included). Secondly, it is a historically valuable city with the 3rd biggest synagogue in the world and the Cathedral of St. Bartholomew with the highest church tower in Czechia, and finally it is an industrial centre of Bohemia with the Skoda engineering company. 

Your private guide and driver will pick you up at your Prague place. After approx. 1h 15min of a comfortable drive in a private car you reach Pilsen with Pilsner brewery. It has been the beer-brewing capital of the world since the 19th century. It was also the European capital of culture in 2015. 

You will explore the 13th century historical centre of the city with the renaissance city hall (16th century) and overlook it from the highest church tower in the Czech Republic (102 m / 334 ft). After that enjoy a typical Czech lunch in the local beerhouse (included).

Beer fans should not miss the opportunity to visit Pilsner Urquell brewery on this tour (admission included) where pilsner type of the beer was born and where you taste this locally called “liquid bread” directly from oak barrels brewed according to the traditional recipe.

In case of interest, there is an option to explore the labyrinth of passages, cellars and wells that were built under the city in the 14th century. The total length of passages exceeds seventeen kilometres, which makes it one of the largest historical underground systems in Central Europe.

The day’s program in Pilsen could be also adjusted to kids. The local tech mania science centre where you learn through play, the only 3D observatory in Czechia, the dino park, museum of ghosts and fairy tales or zoo are great places for fun for the little ones and their accompaniments.

All the time you will be accompanied by a nice professional local guide that is flexible to adjust the program to your needs. You will feel like you are on a trip with an old local friend who is ready to give you the best insider tips and recommendations.
