Welcome to Pilsner Urquell Brewery

Pilsner Urquell Brewery

The most popular attraction in Pilsen nearly since it opened in 1842, the Pilsner Urquell Brewery produces the Pilsner beer that the town has become known for. Visitors can tour the modern breweries, which also contain some of the original equipment, and learn about the brewing process. Pilsner also offers tours for underage groups. The site also contains a brewery museum, which has a replica of a 15th-century brew house and exhibits on beer and drinking history going back to medieval times.

Information & Facts

Czech is the official language but English and German are also widely spoken.

The official currency is the Czech crown, locally known as the Koruna (CZK), which is divided into 100 haler. Most credit cards including American Express, Diners Club, Visa and MasterCard are accepted, but it is best to have cash handy when travelling away from Prague and the main tourist centres. Travellers cheques and foreign currency can be exchanged at banks, bureaux de change and some hotels; commission is highest in hotels. Banks are closed on weekends. ATMs (known as 'bankomats') are becoming more common in Prague and are probably the best way to obtain local currency at a good rate and without commission. The Czech Republic is still cheap compared to the rest of Europe, though the gap is closing.
