What You Can Expect

Prague Walking Tour Following in Mozart's Footsteps

Follow Mozart 's Footsteps in Prague

Prague held a special place in Mozart's heart, and he felt that his music was especially appreciated by the city's people. This tour lets you follow his footsteps through the city. Visit Old Town and stop at the Golden Angel house and the Estates Theatre, which presented the world premiere of the opera, Don Giovanni, on October 29, 1791. In addition, visit the Three Golden Lions house, where Mozart lived during his second stay in Prague.

You will then head to the Museum of Music in Karmelitská by tram to see an exhibition of Mozart, or the Church of St Nicolas at Lesser Town where Mozart once play the organ. Returning to Old Town by tram, take the funicular to Petrin Tower and on to the Strahov Monastery at Hradcany, Prague’s peaceful neighborough. Visit Hradcany Square and the palaces where Mozart held concerts and the houses he stayed in.

The walking tour concludes at St Nicholas's Church, where a requiem was held on December 14, 1791, as a tribute to Mozart and as a statement of the Czech nation's sorrow caused by his sudden death. The trip ends in Lesser Town.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended December 2014

Very informed guide who led us around Prague. We caught the tram to get to some locations and very pleasantly afterwards we had coffee and pastries where we were able to chat with other tourists on the tour.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2014

Lovely tour. We were lucky that we were the only people on the tour. We had a wonderful guide, Eva, all to ourselves and we were able to customize the tour to our liking. We especially enjoyed taking the tram and the funicular up to the top of Petrin Hill. Eva was very knowledgeable on Mozart and the city making for a great excursion.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended July 2014

The tour was wonderful. Our tour guide Eva was informative, up beat, and able to answer any question we asked, not only about Mozart but about anything Czech! Amazingly my wife and I were the only two on the tour which lasted 3 full hours and covered the old town, the lesser town, and more.
Eva kept us moving and it was a long walk, but she paced things for our age ( we are in our 60's).
Meeting Eva and taking the tour paws the high point of our Prague trip.
Don't waste time thinking about it... Just do it!

5 star rating: Highly Recommended April 2013

Our Guide (Vladamir) was passionate about his subject and his city. His depth of knowledge was exceptional. He was responsive to our questions and was an excellent host. He facilitated our falling further in love with a wonderful city.

3 star rating: Worth doing January 2012

We had a wonderful guide and we were the only two people on the tour. She was very knowledgeable, but I think if you already know about the life of Mozart the tour is a waste of time. Since we were the only two people on this tour, she showed us a few other really interesting things that we wanted to see: John Lennon's memorial wall and the statue of the Infant of Prague and his outfits. The tour guide was an A+. The tour might be okay if you know very little about Mozart and want to learn more.

3 star rating: Worth doing December 2010

Extensive walking tour of Prague - perhaps too extensive given the time. In four hours, we were able to view all of the key sights where Mozart had visited, but we did not spend any time extensively visiting them. Very good tour if you want an overview of Prague with the intention of returning to those places of interest. Tour guide was very knowledgable and we found her interesting. However, she was rushed to meet the time constraints. Better directions to tour's starting point would have helped. Bottomline: We would take the tour again - just have our race shoes on!

3 star rating: Worth doing November 2010

If you are all musically inclined and enjoy a walking tour, seeing where Mozart lived and what he did on his 4 separate trips to Prague between 1789 and 1791 was excellent. The music museum, located a short walk once you cross the Charles Bridge was superb!

2 star rating: It was OK, but could have been better June 2015

Our tour guide effectively got us from point to point, but she was not at all knowledgeable about Mozart beyond a few highlights. I was really expecting much, much more. She also was too fond of making somewhat random comments that didn't have much to do with the topic.
