Take a journey with us from the cobbled streets of the Old Town, across the river through the Castle District, where you will visit sites such as the ancient Strahov Monastery, majestic Loreto and Cernin Palace. Walk the magical winding streets of the ‘New World’ as night descends upon the city and hear legends from the reigns of Good King Wenceslas and Charles IV. Hear how scientists and magicians were attracted to Bohemia during the unique reign of Rudolf II, and how alchemy, magic and astronomy have played an important part in history. Enjoy the castle grounds and famous ‘Golden Lane’ as you avoid the daytime crowds and distractions, and as night falls enjoy the spectacular views the city has to offer from the largest castle complex in the world.

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 tram ride from the Mala Strana to the Castle area.
The tour walks through the courtyards but does not enter buildings.
All our tours start from Tynska 7 in Prague’s Old Town, just a few minutes’ walk from the Old Town Square.
