Karlštejn will host a beer festival on May 14

Karlštejn Castle is a restored Gothic building worthy of a fairy tale, located on the top of a hill, in the middle of evergreen forests, 30 kilometers southwest of Prague.

It is one of three famous castles close to the capital and an easy day trip by car, train or guided tour.

The castle is the fifth most visited castle in the Czech Republic and has a storied past, once housing the Crown Jewels of Bohemia during the reign of Charles IV.

On May 14, 2022, from 11 a.m., it will host one of the most important beer festivals in the country.

You can taste beer from different breweries, such as Pilsner Urquell, Kozel, Gambrinus, Radegast and craft beers like Hostomice, Panaczech, Brewi, Malý Janek, Vik and many more. You can find more information here.

After 11:00 a.m., you can also learn how to pour the perfect draft beer, with the help of different brewmasters from the Pilsner Urquell Brewery.

The skills they possess are quite unique. It is for this reason that the cooperage was inscribed on the National List of Cultural Heritage in 2018!
