What You Can Expect
On arrival in the village of Karlstejn, hop off your bike and re-fuel with a hearty Czech lunch (own expense) before venturing on to the famous Czech castle. Karlstejn Castle has a history of more than 650 years and houses an impressive collection of treasures from the Roman Empire, as well as a gallery featuring portraits of famous Czech rulers. During your one-hour guided tour, learn about King Charles IV's life in the castle and admire the majestic Gothic architecture.
You will return to Prague by train, where your tour will end in the early evening.
Our guide was fantastic, very informative about history and local sites. The bike ride was beautiful, and well worth the time to experience the countryside outside of Prague. I would say that you should know that the route is not as flat as described. It can be a little challenging to ride on cobblestone streets and through some areas of heavy morning traffic in Prague, and there are inclines along the route that would be difficult for inexperienced riders. People with bad knees, like myself, may find the hilly parts of the ride challenging and the pace too fast. Our guide did adjust the pace when needed however. Overall it was a great experience which I would be willing to do again. My husband did not find the ride challenging, but he is very used to hill riding and road racing.
Daniele our tour guide was great. It wasn't a bad ride at all so even if you are an intermediate rider you will be fine. Very happy that we took a train home.
