Prague Castle Tour

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

ABOUT THE Prague Castle 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 Select Tour?


Select Tours focus on a particular area or district of a city, a certain aspect of its history or culture, or take you outside the city on a day trip. Select Tours are perfect for those who have enjoyed an introduction to the city and wish to delve deeper into the stories the city has to offer. These tours often venture further afield and make use of local public transport.

As with the Free Tour, Select Tours are provided by local freelance guides in partnership with SANDEMANs NEW Europe, who bring their personal flair and expert knowledge to these specifically themed tours. Select tours have a fixed ticket price - we recommend purchasing your ticket in advance, either during a Free Tour or online.
