If you prefer only paved tracks, no problem, if you don’t mind a bit of dirt, your tour operator knows some easy shortcuts. The best comes at the very end of your ride, when you will be taken to a meadow tucked away between dens...

What people are saying about Karlštejn Castle

Fantastic Day Trip!! Excellent local guide!

This tour offered much more than we expected. Our guide, Erika, shared her thorough knowledge of Czech history, culture, politics and folklore throughout the tour. The caves were an interesting, off the beaten path stop. The castle is a must see if your visiting Prague and this tour provided much more than a trip to castle. The traditional Czech lunch was also amazing. Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun day trip from Prague.

The tour of the glassworks was fascinating and informative. The lunch venue and food were delightful. And last, but not least, the castle was impressive.
