Découvrez l'impressionnant château de Karlstein au cours de cette excursion guidée d'une demi-journée en autocar, au départ de Prague. Construit au XIVe siècle par Charles IV, empereur romain et roi de la Bohême, le château de style gothique abritait les trésors du Saint Empire romain, dont les joyaux des couronnements tchèques. Pendant votre visite guidée, vous explorerez les tours qui composent le château.
Une image de château de conte dans une belle campagne. Notre guide à fait du bon travail lors de la visite du château. Le fait que l'intérieur du château soit accessible seulement en visite guidée est appréciable car on évite ainsi les foules et nous pouvions nous concentrer sur les commentaires de notre guide.
Seul bémol il serait intéressant d'offrir la visite de la tour en option pour ceux qui le désire. C'est très frustrant de se faire décrire les splendeur du lieu sans avoir le temps d'y aller.
Nice overall tour. Bus ride was comfortable and not too long. Guide was very good. Nice castle and small town/shopping on the walk up to the castle. Walk was up hill but not too steep and made for an easy walk up to the castle.
5 stars for driver/guide - Our driver / guide was GREAT. He was very knowledgeable of history, and could converse in English very well.
2 stars for castle guide - My only concern was with the castle guide. In the first room there is a map of the Holy Roman Empire with the shields of the kingdoms within the empire. Above each shield is the name of the kingdom except for two shields, which have no title above them. The guide didn't know why the shield had no name. Each room is locked. When you go from one room to another, the guide unlocks the door, then locks it after everyone is in the new room. The flashing of the lock sometimes has a crown, sometimes it doesn't. I realized the doors leading into the king's room have a crown, the doors leading to common rooms do not have the crown. The guide had no idea of this. This was my first time at castle. This was her many times through castle. She should have known
The trip was good. The guide was very nice and informative, very interested in getting to know everyone and able to explain everything in multiple languages. The bus driver was equally helpful and friendly and allowed my friends and I to stow our luggage on the bus for the duration of the trip, which was very nice. Keep in mind, however, these buses are small most are converted Mercedes Sprinter vans and people carriers, so don't come with more than a backpack and expect them to have room for it.
The Karlstejn Castle was okay, but nothing to write home about. The castle is mostly barren and you only get to see one of the two towers, so almost half the castle is off-limits. While we were inside, we were quite hurried along by the local guide and we were always with another group in the same room, meaning that both guides were speaking at the same time and it was hard to hear and make out what they were saying. Overall not very impressed by the castle visit itself.
If you are booking this tour, please keep in mind that the castle is on a mountain and you will have to climb a bit of a slope to get to it. This climb is not as exerting as other castle climbs in the region, but if you have trouble walking for long distances or tire very easily, you may want to choose something else.
I would recommend Viator or the local providers for the great service, but I would not recommend this castle visit. If you're looking for a good day trip from Prague, might want to look at other tours from Viator.
