|Prague Castle is a majestic sight, especially when illuminated at night. Set high up on the hillside, it dominates the city's skyline.|
Our Prague Castle at Night Tour is a journey of exploration and discovery in search of the historical tales, mysteries and alchemy associated with Prague, the 'magical capital' of Old Europe, and in particular, the mighty castle complex.
This is a fast-paced, fun and enlightening walking tour, which encompasses all the significant historical areas in the city. It is filled with facts, myths and legends.
The tour starts near the Old Town Square. From here, our guide leads us through the cobbled streets of the Old Town, across the Vltava River, and into the picturesque Lesser Town, before we take a tram ride up to Prague Castle (tram ticket is included).
At Prague Castle, with the tourists gone for the day, the complex takes on a romantic, eery, and undeniably magical atmosphere.
Following in the footsteps of kings and emperors, we seek out the castle's hidden secrets, walking through the grand squares to view the palaces, churches and ancient monuments, and through Golden Lane, where generations of artisans lived and worked from the middle ages onwards.
We hear stories from the reigns of King Wenceslas and Emperor Charles IV. And learn how, in the reign of Emperor Rudolf II, scientists and magicians were drawn to Prague from around Europe to practise astronomy, alchemy and magic.
From Prague Castle, participants can experience panoramic views over the city: the summer sunsets can be glorious, while in winter the city is alive with lights.
The tour also covers the historic buildings that surround Prague Castle, such as Strahov Monastery, Černin Palace, Loreta, Nový Svět (New World), Domeček (secret police and Gestapo prison), St Wenceslas’ Vineyard, the Lesser Town and Wallenstein Palace.
Prague Experience walking tours are led by professional licensed tourist guides.
