Western Bohemia Sights

Pilsner Urquell Brewery

Updated 09/26/2013

Fodor's Review

This is a must-see for any beer lover. The first Pilsner beer was created in 1842 using the excellent Plzeň water, a special malt fermented on the premises, and hops grown in the region around Žatec. (Hops from this area remain in great demand today.) Guided tours of the brewery, complete with a visit to the brewhouse and beer tastings, are offered daily at 12:30 and 2. The brewery is near the railway station. The tour can be combined with a tour of the nearby Gambrinus

brewery, the city's underground tunnels, and the Brewery Museum.
