  • Absolutely loved it! Brewery is very close to the station, so convenient to get even by bus or train from Prague. Modern, technologically advanced factory with historical spirit leaded by a very professional guide who will easily help you to discover the world of the beer & answer any questions. Due to my job, I've been to many factories before in different countries but Pilsner is definitely one of the best I ever saw. And beer testing in the end of excursion makes a nice final touch.
  • I was here years ago on a cold winter day. Great tour was small group. Take jacket as you end in cellar. Enjoyed throughly. Walked from nearby train station (easy day trip from Prague)
