The Pilsner Urquell brewery, as a responsible producer of alcoholic beverages, strives to minimise the negative effects of alcohol on minors. We follow this responsible approach during our tours as well.
We have prepared special tours and programmes for minors.
Have your students discover the broader context of brewing within Czech industry during our alternative brewery tour.
The brewery museum has prepared three special education programmes for schoolchildren and students that will bring a welcome addition to your class. Besides these educational programmes we also offer a guided tour of the Brewery Museum or a tour through the Plzeňský Underground at a discounted price.
The tour may be narrated in Czech or in other languages (see the programme details), which is an interesting way to improve the knowledge of students studying a foreign language.
Minors taking a tour of the Pilsen Urquell brewery must be accompanied by a responsible person 18 years or older (parent, teacher, tour guide, etc.), who will be responsible for the minors as well as for the selection of the tour.
In accordance with Act No. 37/1989 Coll., on the Prevention of Alcoholism and other Addictions, as amended, we do not serve beer to anyone under the age of 18.
School groups with one or more minors are not offered the option to taste Pilsner Urquell beer.
The tour guide or a person accompanying the group must report the age of students before purchasing tickets at the Visitor centre.
School groups with minors are not allowed to take the Gambrinus brewery tour.
Groups of visitors above 18 years of age
School groups where all students are above the age of 18 are allowed to take any tour offered by our brewery.
Did you know that the Pilsner Urquell tour is one of the world’s best rated tourist attractions? It’s no wonder, because the tour is full of interesting facts which will impress even very demanding visitors. History lovers will be impressed by the model of the brewery from the 19th century, the brew house from the 1930s and the historical cellars, where Pilsner Urquell beer is still produced today using the same traditional method as during the era of the first brewer. Are you mainly interested in how Pilsner Urquell beer is brewed? We will explain the unique method of brewing Pilsner Urquell beer, which is identical to the method introduced in 1842 by Josef Groll. You can have a look at the new bottling facility, which can handle 120,000 bottles per hour, and the “heart of the brewery”, a modern brewing facility from 2004.
