Pilsner Urquell Brewery Excursion followed by Abbey of Kladruby sightseeing Full day trip, lunch included

Fee €60

Bus leaving from the National Technical Library will drive you to the West of Bohemia. The first stop is in Pilsner where you can enjoy the excursion to Pilsner Urquell Brewery. 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.

From the Visitor Centre, you will travel in a brewery bus to one of the most modern bottling facilities, which processes 120,000 bottles per hour. You will learn about the ingredients from which Pilsner Urquell beer is brewed. We will also visit the heart of the brewery, three brew houses from different centuries. The culmination of the tour is a tasting of unfiltered Pilsner Urquell beer in the historical cellars. Lunch is included.

The trip then continues to Kladruby, a town located in region of Plzeň. The Abbey of Kladruby is a large Benedictine monastery founded in the 12th century by Prince Vladislav I. In 1393 John of Nepomuk was prosecuted and tortured to death for confirming the new Kladruby abbot and an extensive exhibition is devoted to him today in the monastery. A dominant feature of the grounds is the Church of the Assumption of the Virgin Mary, rebuilt by Jan Blažej Santini Aichel in the Czech Baroque Gothic style. The church’s dome is 46 metres high and is topped by a golden Marian crown. The other important building in the monastery’s grounds is the new convent built according to a project by Kilián Ignác Dientzenhofer. The monastery was dissolved by Joseph II in 1785 and up until the end of World War II it was used by the princely Windischgrätz family.

The bus will take you back to the conference venue (National Technical Library) in the late afternoon.
