I am a big fan of Becherovka, but there was not a lot of things to see in this museum. A few exhibits and a video, then tasting at the end (you get to taste 3 kinds of Becherovka, unfortunately you can not choose which ones you prefer). There is a shop where you can buy souvenirs as well. While... More

The place is famous for Becherovska drink and the museum shows us why. It details how the drink came into existence and about its finders. In the end, they also have a tasting session. I am not very sure if people visiting Karlovy Vary will prefer this place to the grand outdoors. But if you have time to kill, this... More

The famous alcoholic and herbal drink Becherovka is made in this town. The tour shows you how the drink is made and gives you a fascinating history. We don't like this drink, but the tour was very interesting. Only two people in the world know the formula for making this drink.

It was an average trip and caused disruption to our schedule because the english tour was only operating at 1 p.m. We were forced to eat in the complex but without much time to spare but there was a coffee shop with an awesome salmon sandwich and equally good coffee. It was the highlight of the trip as the museum... More

For all connoisseurs of alcohol (but not only for them) this museum is a must. Within 2 hours you get all the information about the history of Beher's family and their famous baby called Beherovka. At the end of the visit you can buy all kind of liquid souvenirs.

Only guided tour. We made our schedule so we could arrive at the starting point in time. Generous description offered by guide. Tried all Becherovka types. Bought all of them from the shop located near the museum. Spent some nice time after visiting on the pub located near the shop&museum. Worth it all!
