The Original Pilsner

February 11, 2013

Go beyond the typical tourist haunt of Oktoberfest in Munich and straight to the heart of good beer with a trip to the original Urquell Pilsner brewing museum. A short drive or train ride from Munich across the border into the Czech Republic, this historic location offers guided tours of the premises, including historical information about how beer-making has developed since ancient times and antique equipment from centuries past. In the basement, you'll also have a chance to taste some of their fine products, with even a sampling of the unfiltered beer. A final trip to the attached restaurant will serve you in good stead, as they have excellent local and traditional food on offer (paired, of course, with outstanding beers!).
