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.

The tour lasts more than an hour. You can see archeological finds from many eras (the Middle ages and on), the wells, the weapons, some drawings and plans, etc. and meanwhile a guide reveals the history of Plzeň. There are very low ceilings in the tunnels, so you get a hard hat not to injure yourself. Very tall people have... More

We enjoyed a very full day in Plzen, staying two nights in the hotel across from the brewery. After walking around the main square and side streets, we toured the underground on an English language tour. It was a warm July day so the cool underground was refreshing. We thought it would be more rough, grimy and unfinished but it... More

The underground city is very interesting when you think about the effort and planning that went into a city underground. We didn't want to wait for the English tour so used the audio guide with the German tour. Our guide was able to answer questions and keep us ahead of the audio so we kept up. We found the tunnels...

We visited the Plzen Brewery Museum, Historic Underground and Pilsner Urquell brewery on the same day. I was really impressed with all 3 attractions. The historical underground tour was really interesting - I learnt a lot about Plzen's history. Our tour guide spoke very good English but was noticeably VERY nervous (maybe she was quite new to the job?) which... More
