Since its beginning the town became an important trade center at the significant crossroads of the routes linking Norimberg with Regensburg. Between 1599 – 1600 Plzeň was temporarily the seat of the Roman Emperor and Czech King, Rudolf II. The enormous blossoming of the town began in the first half of the 19th century.

You will be invited to taste unfiltered and unpasteurised Pilsner Urquell beer at the end of the tour. Next we will visit to Chyse castle which origins date from the year 1169. Over the centuries the chateau went through many changes. It began as a fortified settlement before it was rebuilt as a Gothic castle in the 13th century. In 1578 Chyse castle was transformed into a Renaissance chateau before a Baroque-style reconstruction completed in 1708. Between the years 1856 and 58 one final reconstruction was done. This time the skilled craftsmen created a neo-Gothic redesign. In 1917, world-famous Czech writer Karel Čapek worked at Chyse as a home tutor.
