button to book Karlstejn Castle Tour Activity
A half day trip from Prague to Karlstejn Castle, an awe-inspiring 14th century fortress to rival any in Central Europe. The tour explores the castle and the national treasures it houses.

This sightseeing tour is part by air-conditioned bus, part on foot.

After meeting you in the city centre, near Wenceslas Square, we board the bus for the journey to Karlstejn, which takes around 40 minutes.

Karlstejn Castle is a huge Gothic castle built on a seemingly impregnable rocky hillside, in the heart of a thick forest.

It was commissioned by Emperor Charles IV and constructed during the years 1348-55. Because it was deemed unconquerable, Karlstejn became the depository for the Emperor's coronation jewels and state documents for his whole empire.

The castle houses important Czech national treasures, the history and significance of which will be explained during our guided tour.

On the tour we visit the Courtier's Hall, the Hall of Knights and chapel of St. Nicholas, the Chapter Deanery, the Royal Bedroom, the Audience and Banqueting Halls, the Hall of Ancestors, the Treasury and Jewels Hall, and the castle prison.

The Czech Republic was a major European force in the middle ages and has hundreds of castles. Karlstejn is unquestionably one of, if not the finest.

The tour of Karlstejn ends will a short honey wine tasting.

For refreshments, a shop in the castle courtyard sells drinks and light snacks.

Prague Experience sightseeing tours are in English and another language. They are led by professional, licensed tourist guides and use modern, air-conditioned buses.

The trip finishes back in Prague, near Wenceslas Square.

------------------------------------------

Note: The tour of the castle is over several levels. And to return to the bus at the end of the visit, there is a downhill walk of around 1km (0.8 mile). Suitable shoes or trainers are recommended.
