The underground takes you through tunnels that have numerous displays of days of yore. You wear a hard hat (which helps with low ceilings) and are with a group of maybe twenty people. If near the front, you can hear the explanations of the displays, otherwise you don't see the items until you pass by them. The beautiful brick work... More

This tour will take on a fun underground walk in the center town, about 800 meters with many turns and loops. Wear good non-slippery shoes as it is wet. Also, bring a light jacket as it gets cold too. While interesting, it is not a highlight or a must- in my opinion. If you have time to spare, it is... More

The tour takes place in narrow tunnels so watch out if you are claustrophobic / tall (you must wear a helmet anyway because of the low ceilings). You get to see various exhibits from different time periods which was pretty cool, imagining how life must have been then. However because the whole group can not fit in the tunnels at... More

Though renovated and reinforced between the 1960s and 80s, the underground still offers an occasional glimpse of the sandstone pathways and wells that coil under the city, culminating with the massive wooden waterwheel by the water tower.

Great experience going through the old underground. Not for the claustrophobic. We had a couple in the group that couldn't take it a few minutes into the trip and we all had to go back to the start because of them. Tour was with a Czech speaking English, so somewhat difficult to understand.

Not much to the tour. I would not do this again. It was 50 minutes of walking around many of the same passageways. The underground portion pot the brewery tour was more interesting.

A tour through underground corridors and low ceiling tunnels, guided in foreign languages, full of handicraft artifacts. It is worth visiting.
