About
Just 212 steps down to enter the labyrinth’s winding passages The passageways in the Labyrinth under the Vegetable Market lead to unique and mysterious places, including medieval cellars hidden six to eight metres below ground. Visitors learn how food, wine, and beer were once stored and how this underground space used to be lit, and also see a collection of archaeological findings. The tour also visits an alchemist’s laboratory and recalls the doctors, pharmacists, and physicists who lived in Brno and made the city famous throughout Europe. An old wine cellar and a period tavern are reminders of the local tradition of winemaking. Replicas of a pillory and a cage of fools, both of which were located at the town marketplace in the 17th century, evoke the darker side of life a few centuries ago. The tour also introduces some of the punishments that awaited dishonest craftsmen, traders, and merchants.

Walking through the labyrinth was spooky and cool experience! But they force you to pay extra for a tour and it is not in any other language than Czech… which doesn’t make sense as it is a tourist event and the world language is English. The cost was way to high for me to stand there listening to a language I could not understand. They wanted a large fee for an English audio guide and if not gave you paper to read in a very dark cellar. Terrible organization!

guided tours in Czech with English handbooks. Small admission fee. Very interesting history and artifacts. Glad we did it.

Fun for adults and kids alike, it's not as deep as you may fear, but the history is fascinating. You'll get to see a real workshop of a real alchemist and try on some torture devices.

More extensive than we expected, and the labyrinth is on many levels (lowest 11 metres where there is some standing water to walk through) Our guide was entertaining and knowledgeable, and had no problem switching to English when necessary.
The printed guide is 13 pages long, and as others have mentioned impossible to read in reduced light, but the live guide is more than enough.
Worth 40 minutes of your time.

There wasn't an English guide, so they gave us few papers with notes about the place. But you can barely read there because it's so dark. I also didn’t find the visit too interesting but maybe it’s because of the lack of a guide.

A guided tour of bygone times when the tunnels beneath the Vegetable market were used for storing fruit/veg, wine a drinking establishment, also an apothecary and a variety of torture chambers and equipment. Staged really well with atmospheric lighting and some really interesting ancient objects to peruse. For English guide please hire the audio device which is very simple to use. Please also be aware that there are several stony steps to walk up and down between each tunnel as you make your way down to the depths and back up again, but none too difficult for able bodied. Plus there is a short section of tunnel deep in the bowels which is quite wet underfoot so you might want to wear appropriate shoes. An enjoyable and thought provoking experience!

A very intersting visit beneath the cabbage market. Very clean and cool. A number of exhibits throughout the tunnels. We joined a guided tour but the whole commentary was in Czech. We were given sheets of notes in English to keep upto speed with whats going on. We enjoyed the visit but it only lasts around 40 minutes.

Enjoyed our visit here. It's well organised and there is an audio guide in several languages you can follow ic unable to speak Czech. They have laid out the tunnels and chambers to cover different themes and details about everyday life. Worth the visit, just get there in plenty of time or pop in to pre-book the say before as it looks like it gets fairly busy and you may get turned away, as you are not allowed down without a guide. Discount for over 60s - we forgot to ask and found out too late

I fully recommend you visit if you get the time. It is a guided tour that’s very interesting and informative. It’s suited to all ages but so note there are plenty of steps so may not be too well suited to anyone that tires easily or struggles with stairs.
