Prague Castle Walking Tour

Prague Castle Walking Tour

Meet your guide in central Prague, travel by comfortable coach to Prague Castle, the UNESCO-listed fortified complex that gazes across the Vltava River to Prague Old Town.

Head inside and set off on your walking tour of this architectural tour-de-force. Hear from your guide how it began to take shape in the 10th century, growing into a mighty power base for Bohemia’s kings and Holy Roman Emperors.

Stroll through the courtyards past palaces and monuments and visit the castle showing, St Vitus Cathedral, the seat of the Archbishop of Prague. 

Ogle the stunning Gothic building and its interior, and learn how it remained incomplete until 1929. 

Move on to the Old Royal Palace, the residence of Bohemia’s princes and kings for more than 700 years; admire the Basilica of St George; and continue to Golden Lane tucked under the walls. 

This postcard-worthy cobbled lane is famous for its brightly painted 15th-century cottages that served as dwellings for castle artisans, servants, alchemists and goldsmiths.

Head inside some of the houses to see their replica scenes of medieval life and browse the cottages converted into arty shops.
Afterward, leave the castle and end your tour at the Charles Bridge.

Our guide was very well versed in the history and area. She knew how to work her way around the crowds and gave us a great tour. She was also available to show us how to get back to our hotel or to other places of interest in the area.

We had a small group 10 that left from city center. Anna was our guide. Very knowledgable and interesting. She covered the basics very well, 4 hours just not enough time to take it all in!! Anna helped direct us to highlights of Lesser Town on our walk back across Charles bridge. Could not imagine navigating this site on my own. Well worth it!

The castle can be intimidating but seeing it on this tour was OUTSTANDING! Hit the highlights, learned a lot of history and covered a lot. Timed perfectly to arrive at castle for changing of the guards. Main downside was meeting at Viator kiosk-not convenient. Bus from kiosk to castle was a plus.

Helen our guide was amazing! Lots of stories and details and she expertly navigated the crowds while allowing us enough time for pictures. She answered all questions and was very approachable. We did a city tour the first day followed by this walking tour the second day and it worked out really well. Prague Castle is the cornerstone for all sightseeing.
Wear good walking shoes. When it is finished you can walk to Charles Bridge. It is cobblestone and downhill but the views are amazing so don't trip!
