Labyrinth under Vegetable Market, Brno

Labyrinth under Vegetable Market, Brno

The Labyrinth under the Vegetable Market is a series of underground passages beneath the Vegetable Market Square in Brno. It consists of corridors and cellars that date as far back as the Middle Ages.

Initially, the Labyrinth was used for the grocers who sold their wares at the Vegetable Market. The chilly atmosphere was ideal for keeping fruit and vegetables fresh. The Labyrinth was also utilized for brewing beer and aging wine. During wartime, the cellars served as a shelter from heavy artillery.

The passages were not all connected until 2009 when they underwent reconstruction. They opened to the public in 2011. Tourists should note that there are 221 steps required to reach the Labyrinth from the street level. Once they arrive, they will see displays that show old taverns, archaeological findings, and replicas of the pillory and stockades that once sat in the Vegetable Market Square.
