The Czech Republic is pioneering a burgeoning and popular beer spa culture, and a visit to Prague is a great opportunity to visit some of the country’s newest leisure activities – beer spas. Each beer spa facility differs, but usually one treatment is a beer bath – which is a warm bathtub full of a mixture of water, beer, and beer products, either for an individual or two, lasting for about 20 minutes, plus a beer each to drink. Other popular treatments include massages or hot packs with barley and hops. Not only are beer spas are extremely relaxing, but beer baths are also beneficial for your skin. Don’t be scared – after a shower, you won’t smell like beer.

SPA BEER LAND
The SPA BEER LAND Beer spa is a relaxation room offering a unique spa-style treatment, making use of exclusively natural ingredients and old Czech healing cures. Guests bathe in hand-made, one-thousand-litre vats made of royal oak. The bath is infused with natural extracts used in the brewing of Czech beer – select varieties of hops, brewer‘s yeast and malt. The high content of hop silicates assists in the overall re-vitalization and opening up of skin pores. Brewer‘s yeast, with its high vitamin B content and active enzymes, promotes skin regeneration. During beer bathing, clients may pour themselves an unrestricted amount of draught Krušovice beer. Bathing is followed by relaxation on a bed of wheat straw, by the glow of an open fire, while enjoying the taste of fresh beer bread. A hop sauna is also available.
