Networking after Sunday Symposium

After the symposium, you can choose from a visit to the Underground Labyrinth of cellars, or a visit to the Old City Hall. Both options are associated with an interesting guided tour and excellent food and drink.

Underground labyrinth

You can look forward to mysterious nooks and crannies of medieval cellars. Surprises are prepared for underground world explorers and enthusiasts, including a genuine medieval pillory. Guided tours through the labyrinth are offered as well as excellent catering.

The passageways in the Labyrinth under the Vegetable Market lead to unique and mysterious places, including medieval cellars hidden six to eight metres below ground. Visitors learn how food, wine, and beer were once stored and how this underground space used to be lit, and also see a collection of archaeological findings. The tour also visits an alchemist’s laboratory and recalls the doctors, pharmacists, and physicists who lived in Brno and made the city famous throughout Europe.

An old wine cellar and a period tavern are reminders of the local tradition of winemaking. Replicas of a pillory and a cage of fools, both of which were located at the town marketplace in the 17th century, evoke the darker side of life a few centuries ago. The tour also introduces some of the punishments that awaited dishonest craftsmen, traders, and merchants.
