My husband wanted to tour the factory as he enjoys chilled Becherovka every once a while. We toured and sampled different kinds of liquors.

Remember the visit just because I had t run through the whole city to be in time for excursion. Nothing catching. Better buy a bottle of Becherovka in BILLA supermarket near by and drink it in a good company!

The tour was very quick and hurried, and only lasted for about 20 minutes. Lots of mannequins. I was expecting more information about how Becherovka is actually made, but it was more just a brief history. At the end we sat through a 10 minute video while sampling 3 types of Becherovka. The samples just about justified the 120czk admission... More

It's a perfect example of how museum of a regional specialty should be done. I definetely recommend this 40-minute trip (especially that at the end you get to taste 3 kinds of Becherovka) and seeing a beaufitul plaza in the middle of the building.

The history of Becherovka is fascinating and even though the beverage is no longer brewed in the centre of town, the museum gives a good insight of how the famous drink came into being. We were offered 3 different types of Becherovka to taste all inclusive. The tour cost €10 for a family group. (Orange drink for the under 18's).... More

It is a paid tour of how they make this liquor and its history. You get three shots of liquor at the end of the tour.

It was a poor experience. The admission ticket price was of 120 CZK for the tour which last about 20 minutes and 10 minutes sitting and watching a movie while tasting different varieties of Becherovska - choose by the guide (for the other 2 you have to pay another 30 CZK). Anyway we like Becherovska and we brought home also... More

Until 2010, this was the location of the Becherovka factory. Now the production has moved, in order to keep up with the demand, so the former factory has turned into a museum. The guide was polite and informative but she spoke in czech; we, foreigners, were being given the text in english (or german or russian). We got to know... More

We felt that our tour was a bit overcrowded. Everything was rushed, therefore the information about history was very interesting, guide was not heard very well. Basically, this and other same tours are very similar to each other - especially the final part - tasting. This is about of how you present and sell. This did not sell, but anyway... More
