Tour Details

This evening’s three-hour tour will introduce you to alchemy, the direct ancestor of contemporary science. 
Begin by walking from the Old Town Square to the Old New Synagogue, where you will hear the first mysterious tale of the tour, related to Rabbi Löw and his Golem, the “Jewish Frankenstein”. The journey continues to Mánes Bridge, where you can discover more about the building of the city during the reign of the brilliant King Charles IV. His visions relied heavily on astrology and esotericism, leaving nothing to chance, and paving the way to Prague’s current beauty.

Take a tram up to the Castle District to find out more about the lives of astronomers and scientists who were invited to the court of Rudolf II, including Tycho de Brahe and Johannes Kepler. Learn about the mystery behind the Devil’s Bible while exploring the still-operational Strahov Monastery. Speaking of the devil, you will next be led by the location of “Hole to Hell”, opened by cruel Christianity-hater Drahomíra.

En route to the castle grounds, walk through the New World, a charming little area that is hidden even from many locals. See the former residence of Tycho de Brahe, as well as the only remaining wooden house in the city centre. Make your way to Prague Castle to experience the highlight of your journey – witnessing the world’s largest castle complex completely free of tourists. Listen to several mysterious facts about some of its features you wouldn’t normally notice on a historical tour. See the unusual small houses of the Golden Lane and learn the fates of all the alchemists whose stories we follow during the tour. Finish the tour at the St Wenceslas Vineyard which offers stunning panoramic views of the city.

All our tours start from Tynska 7 in Prague’s Old Town, just a few minutes’ walk from the Old Town Square.
