    The Stuttgart of Czech Republic

    May 12, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 22 °C

    It wasn't hard to talk to Ondrejs parents at all😄. Dad's English is great and mom can speak German 🤗. We managed luckily to get a tour of the Plzner brewery. Well they explained all the processes of how beer is made, why it's special and everything. It was actually fun to see the bigass factory 😂, even try the beer.😄 Lunch was amazing with milky and sugary wrapped plum balls😋. The cat is super cute and bitchy too. The beer fest is on now😂. Let's enjoy it!
    Dancing in the festival was super cool firstly😃. Music is essential to get up. Man the funniest part was to see a completely drunk guy dance😂 poor superstar was falling onto others🤭 and provided the entertainment.

    Pilsen

    July 24, 2015 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    Vendredi, 24 juillet 2015
    Nous quittons Regensburg et le Danube et continuons en direction de l'est. Nous achetons notre pic-nic à Fürth im Walde, juste avant la frontière tchèque. Nous devons faire tout le trajet jusqu'à Plzen (80km) où nous nous installons au Autocamp Ostende pour enfin dîner. Il n'y avait aucune place de parc sur cette grande route. Le camping est idylliquement situé au bord d'un petit lac. Nous nous lançons à la découverte de Pilsen et des transports publics, mais en premier lieu, il nous faut des couronnes tchèques pour acheter un ticket. Tous ces problèmes résolus, nous allons directement à la Brasserie de la Pilsner Urquell où nous assistons à une visite guidée de plus de 90min. tres intéressante (avec dégustation évidemment). Nous admirons ensuite la belle Place de la République, la Republiky náměsti, l'hôtel de ville et la cathédrale sv. Bartoloměje. Un bon souper tchèque et de bonnes bières de la ville nous attendent chez U Salzmannù (l'addition pour nous deux fr. 20), une bonne adresse dénichée grâce au routard.Read more

    Beer, Again

    June 2, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 21 °C

    We're enroute to Prague and our driver happened to know about a little brewery on the way.

    In the town of Pilsner is home to Pilsner Urquel, a beer now colloquially referred to as Pils. It's one of the most recognized lager beers. And for good reason; it's a great lager beer.

    Nach langer Suche.......

    July 10, 2018 in Czech Republic ⋅ 🌧 16 °C

    Ein Road trip, der es in sich hatte. Kilometer durch dünn besiedelte Waldlandschaften immer Richtung Prag. Wir hatten nicht immer die Orientierung aber sind letztendlich an einem sehr idyllischen Campingplatz bei Pilsen gelandet. Jetzt noch ein lecker Feierabendbierchen vor der ersten Nacht im Bus.

    "It's 4pm and 33' outside"

    September 17, 2015 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 26 °C

    This morning we went to the documentationszekum reichspartagsgelaende, or the 'nazi documentation centre/party rally grounds. It turns out that Nuremberg was one of Hitlers favourite places. It was a very interesting musuem, it detailed the conceptualisation of the Nazi movement, how it gained momentum and the demise. Strangely though, it didnt detail how things ended for Hitler (it did for his team of ministers). It was a silent musuem so we walked around with little speakers to listen to the displays. it was all housed in a rally ground that Hitler and Speer had designed and partially constructed. It was very surreal walking the same places that were featured in the photos/videos.

    Then we drove about 2 hours to Pilsen in Czech Republic. We crossed the boarder, went over a hill and the temperature went from 19 to 33! After we checked in we ventured in to the city for and got a bit lost after we got off the bus. The wrong streets are a bit "bleek"!

    No prizes why we're in a town named Pilsen. We're heading on a beer tour tomorrow then on to Prague. Miss you all xo

    Stadtbesichtigung Pilsen (CZ)

    August 28, 2019 in Czech Republic ⋅ ☁️ 25 °C

    Nach einer kurzen Wanderung von Plzen 1 nach Plzen 3 (Bezeichnung laut Google) - knappe 5km - sind wir zur Brauereiführung von Pilsener Urquell gegangen.

    Eine riesige Brauerei die mehr als 2Mrd. Flaschen Bier pro Jahr füllt. Im Untergrund der Brauerei verlaufen 9km Tunnel um die ideale Temperatur von untergährigem Bier zu erreichen 7-9°C. Eine Bierverkostung war natürlich mit inklusive.

    Danach noch schnell am Set von ner tschechischen Soap in der Nähe vom alten Stadtzentrum vorbeigeschaut.

    Den Tag mit einem hervorragenden Burger abgeschlossen. Blondie's Burger Restaurant ist sehr zu empfehlen.

    Plzen, Plzeň Region

    April 9, 2014 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 17 °C

    Visited the Pilsner Urquell brewery, which was fascinating. Amazed that they only stopped using an ice house to cool the cellars in the 1980s! Unfiltered, unpasteurised beer was a revelation, really lovely.

    August 20, 2016 in Czech Republic ⋅ ⛅ 19 °C
