Description

This Prague Castle tour covers a mixture of legends and historical facts, taking you to one of Prague’s most enchanting areas.

Once the crowds are gone and the daylight fades, our tour guides will lead you from the historic Old Town of Prague across the River Vltava and into the world’s largest castle complex. 

You’ll explore the monasteries, churches, palaces, and monuments of Prague Castle, walking in the footsteps of kings, emperors, invaders, and alchemists. 

You’ll visit the monastery where „Holy Beer“ is brewed, see the palace whose grounds are home to the „Hole to Hell“, learn about Prague’s Alchemist Emperor and the scientists and magicians he brought to the city.

You’ll have the chance to see the castle and its surroundings in a quiet, magical atmosphere, without the crowds, and you’ll see the Golden Lane, once home to the famous author Franz Kafka. Your tour ticket includes a tram ride from the Mala Strana to the Castle area.
