Book Karlstejn Castle Sightseeing Tour
A half day tour to Karlstejn Castle, an awe-inspiring 14th century fortress to rival any in Central Europe. A visit to this huge Gothic castle is one of our most popular tours outside Prague.

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

After picking you up from your Prague hotel, we take a short trip through the pretty Czech countryside to reach Karlstejn.

Karlstejn Castle is built on a seemingly impregnable rocky hillside, in the heart of a thick forest. After parking the coach at the foot of the castle, we walk along a fairly steep path to reach the entrance.

Commissioned by Emperor Charles IV, this mighty medieval construction was built during the years 1348-55, and has never been conquered! Karlstejn became the depository for the Emperor's coronation jewels and state documents for his whole empire.

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

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.

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 mini-coaches.

If you require a tour in French, German, Italian, Russian or Spanish, please specify on the booking form.

The tour finishes back in Prague at a convenient point in the city centre, near Wenceslas Square.
