After leaving the port, you will start the tour in Klaipėda’s old town: you will see the castle museum located in one of the reconstructed fortification of bastions. After you will stop at the Theatre Square – this is the heart of the city. There is a sculpture of Ann from Tharaw which stands in the fountain in the middle of the square. The monument is dedicated to Simon Dach, a German poet. You will be also introduced to the sculptures which became Klaipėda's Old Town attraction for many years - "The cat with the face of a gentleman". Discover "mysterious mouse", and learn what power it has, also find out why the Dragon clambered up on the wall and why rooftop chimney sweeper is located on the roof of one the Old town houses. You will see the only existing ravelin (a ravelin is a triangular fortification or detached outwork, located in front of the inner works of a fortress) in Klaipeda located on Jonas Hill and you will hear the story of the city's fortifications and defensive system. Then comes the highlight of the tour, a fascinating visit and tasting session at the famous “Švyturys” Brewery founded by local tradesman J W Reincke in 1784. The brewery’s traditional brewing methods are unique in Lithuania, and the range and flavour of its products go far beyond people’s usual ideas about beer. People’s thinking about beer is usually limited to thinking that it can be dark or light, and strong or gentle. There’s a lot more to it than that. Find out all the different varieties of beer how they make it at “Švyturys”! As with so many things, the more you know about beer, the more you enjoy it. Try some “Švyturys” for free! And maybe buy some! Cheers!

Beer tasting at the brewery.
