Bohemian glassware and pilsner beer - it's what the Czech Republic is famous for! This day trip from Prague has something for everyone, visiting the Nizbor Bohemia glass factory and the Pilsner Urquell Brewery. The tour offers a fabulous opportunity to learn about the Czech people and their culture.

Highlights

  • Day trip (destination A to B)
  • Informative, friendly and professional guide
  • Lunch included
Beer has been brewed in the town of Pilsen since it was founded in 1295. However, the pilsner known around the world today is connected with the name of Pilsner Urquell, brewed in the Prazdroj brewery dating back to 1842. Brewers the world over have tried in vain to imitate the unique taste of Pilsner Urquell!

Your factory visit will show you how pilsner was brewed and drunk in the past, and how it is brewed and drunk today. You'll visit the museum's collection documenting the brewery's 150-year history, and have lunch in the brewery's restaurant U Salzmannu (included in the tour price).

The Czech Republic's most famous glass factory is situated in the small town of Nizbor on the River Berounka (a tributary of the Vltava River), around an hour's drive from Prague. The factory tour reveals the complete history of glass production in Bohemia. You will also have the opportunity to buy glass products at the glass factory, at discounted prices.

Very nice tour!
Complimentary hotel pick-up was a great start to the morning.
We drove out to the glass factory first. Our driver was the guide and was pretty knowledgeable about all the facts. It was very interesting to see the working conditions, furnace room, cutting machines. The tour isn't in a roped off area so I wouldn't recommend it for small children who like be defiant and roam around.
Then we went to lunch at the brewery's factory options: traditional Czech pork, chicken, or veggie rice.
Lastly, the brewery itself. Tour was led by a brewery employee. Got to see the bottling plant, brewing area, and underground tunnels. The tour is the only place you can get Pilsner Urquell's unfiltered beer, straight from the barrel - which made the tour pretty cool.

I highly recommend this tour to anyone interested in a day trip from Prague!

The glass factory tour was very interesting and informative. We also loved the shopping there. The prices were incredible compared to the USA. The brewery tour was also great. We had a chance to see how the original Pilsner is brewed. We were able to sample very fresh beer that is only available on this tour. Excellent!!!
