Description

Our Karlstejn Castle Bike Tour rolls you southwest of Prague along the Vltava and Berounka Rivers and through the Czech countryside to the gothic fortress built by King Karel IV to house the imperial jewels and his collection of holy relics. Karlstejn Castle, with its enchanting, monumental architecture is one of the most-visited castles in the country. 

We start the guided bike trip to Karlstejn from the Praha Bike office in the center of Prague. Our cycling time to the castle takes about 3.5-4 hours and has a flat terrain. During our trip we will pass through several villages, making observation and refreshments stops. Upon our arrival at Karlstejn Village (population 800), we stop for lunch in a traditional Czech restaurant. Then, we leave our bikes behind to walk (15 min) up to the castle grounds.

Thank you for submitting your review

Impressive castle and grounds

Quite easy bike ride even if you are not an expert cyclist. All bikes and equipment are in prime condition and our guide was excellent and very friendly. Appreciated the stops along the way, in those pretty villages. The famous castle is all you expect, magnificent in a lush background. Tasty meal in nearby restaurant. Didn't have much time for an interior visit but had a great walk around the village.
