Guided tours in utility tunnels

The city-owned company Technické sítě Brno, a.s. offers guided tours in utility tunnels within the framework of a project entitled Brněnské technické podzemí (Brno Technical Underground). These guided tours allow tourists to explore the entrails of the city without which the city could not exist properly. Two versions of the tour are offered (shorter and longer). Groups of no more than ten people can choose between a 60-minute shorter walk or a 90-minute longer walk, accompanied by trained tour guides.

The shorter tour is focused on modern technologies used to operate the city’s utilities, their maintenance and purpose. On the other hand, the longer route (approximately 1,100 meters) takes visitors to the historical center as well. It follows Josefská, Masarykova, Orlí, Radnická, Jánská or Minoritská streets. The entrance and exit for both is located in Josefská street. Some tunnels have been turned into museum corridors of sorts. Visitors can take a closer look at archaeological finds from wells at the Špilberk Castle, fragments of wells or various ancient tools used in underground works. Special signs are installed at intersections of these tunnels which list former names of the streets directly above the heads of visitors.
