Krakow Beers and Cheers

Raise a pint at some of the best-loved local pubs and breweries in Krakow while learning about the long history of beer in the city. For instance, did you know that there were more breweries in medieval Krakow than there are today?! In between beers and bites, explore the Old Town and get off the beaten path to discover hidden corners most visitors never find, and delve headlong into beer culture in Krakow.

Culture, history and beer blend seamlessly in this unique journey through Krakow’s beer-drinking past, which goes all the way back to medieval times. Discover how the locals like to spend their evenings, as you walk the beer road, down vibrant streets, admiring iconic monuments whose illuminations light up the night sky. A wonderful recipe for a great night out!

Your tour begins in the city’s majestic Old Town with a short stroll along Szpitalna Street — famous for its old bookshops. Before you know it, we will reach our first stop, a historic brewery where beer was born to live — its walls have certainly seen lots of barrels over the years.

With a pint in hand, take a walk around, observing how everything works and just generally having fun inside a very small, but special beer factory. It is here that you will have the opportunity to try Polish golonka (meaning pork knuckle) which, when eaten with a good beer, is a heavenly pairing for many locals!

Next up, hop on a tram and travel through medieval Krakow and find yourself inside a totally different watering hole: a sailor’s tavern. Situated on the outskirts of the old university district, you will admire the stunning interior and original ambience as we sip a brew and hear stories from days gone by.

Your expert guide will talk about University life, both past and present as you walk amongst the walls of the medieval district, blissfully free of the throng of students that inhabit the area during the day.

The final stop will lead you back to the very heart of the Old Town, the Main Market Square, which is beautifully illuminated at night. What is local is sometimes hidden and that's why your guide will walk you through a decorated gate to get to a courtyard, which will take you to a mysterious, medieval cellar to continue your beer adventure… it doesn’t get more local than this!

Your tour ends here, but before you go, don’t forget to ask your local guide for tips on what else to see, do and eat during your stay in charismatic Krakow.
