The first group will take off from the Visitors’ Centre and participate in a  90–minute tour of the brewery at 8:00 a.m. The last tour starts when the clock hits the mark of 4:00 p.m. Next to many other attractive artefacts, a unique collection of beer glasses and a sculpture of the god Radegast will be on display.

 „This year’s Open Door Day will be very different from the preceding ones thanks to the new Visitors’ Centre and the presence of the master coopers. Therefore I  would very much like to invite even those visitors who’ve already come to see us in the past,“ said Ivo Kaňák, manager of Radegast. 

Open Door Day is always very popular among visitors. Through its history, 6,500 people have come to take part in its events. For that reason, it is useful to reserve a tour time in advance at +420 558 602 566 or via e-mail at .
