Prague Castle Free Walking Tour

Take a tour of the world-famous Prague Castle with an expert local guide

ABOUT THE Prague Castle Free Walking Tour

This 3-hour Prague Castle tour shows you all the most famous parts of the incredible Prague Castle, as well as helping you find the hidden gems and telling you some of the fascinating stories that you won't be able to find on your own.

 

This tour of Prague Castle meets at Jan Palach Square in front of the Rudolfinum and it usually ends in the Prague Castle gardens, overlooking the Old Town.

 

The world's largest medieval castle

Your local expert guide will start the tour by taking you up the hill on a charming Prague tram, and telling you about the fascinating history of the Prague Castle, dating all the way back to the 9th Century and making it the largest medieval castle in the world. Even though many different architects have contributed to it over time, the Prague Castle ensemble remains remarkably harmonious, which you'll see as you vist Malá Strana, filled with houses of the nobility, the Old Royal Palace, and major must-see sites like the last judgment mosaic, St Nicholas's Church and St. George's Basilica.

Hidden treasures and surprises around every corner

Even though your Prague Castle tour guide will make sure you see all the must-see sites, she or he will also remind you to keep your eyes open as you are taken to see the castle's many hidden treasures. You'll be introduced to fascinating sculptures, buildings and pieces of art as you are taken on a tour of the Prague Castle that only an expert local guide can offer.

Stunning views of Prague

Be sure to leave space on your phone or camera though, because at the end of the tour you'll be treated with some of the most stunning views of Prague. As the Prague Castle towers over the city, breathtaking panoramic views will leave you with incredible images to remember the city by, and to make your friends at home jealous!

What is a Free Tour?

 

The Free Tour is the best introduction to Prague! A general overview tour including many of the highlights of the city, the Free Tour usually lasts around 3 hours and is provided by a local freelance guide in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, so tour content can vary depending on your guide’s particular area of interest and expertise.

The Free Tour is a walking tour with no need for public transport and is designed for independent travellers, not groups. You can book your spot in advance online or simply show up at the start point on the day. There is no payment necessary at the start of the tour but you are welcome to tip your guide at the end!

We believe in supporting local communities and are committed to giving a voice to some of Prague's best local freelance tour guides, who passionately share the city's history and culture with their own unique and always-entertaining style. They'll never pressure you to tip; we believe that, if money is given, it should be voluntary and in direct proportion to the quality of the tour and the budget of the traveller.

Why join the SANDEMANs FREE Tour?

  • The route covers many of Prague's major landmarks
  • The meeting point is centrally located in the Old Town Square
  • The Free Tour is guaranteed to fit within your budget
  • The guides performing tips-based Free Tours are incentivized to perform every time
