Tour description

Explore Prague Castle and Castle District without missing out on one of its biggest highlights: The Change of Prague Castle Guards accompanied by the Music Band of the Castle Guards at 12 PM.

This Free Prague Castle tour concentrates fully on the area of Prague Castle and Castle District and is for everyone who wants to explore Prague Castle comfortably and learn about its history (and have fun of course)

We will start the tour from Malostranska metro station, which is located right below Prague Castle. We'll take a tram to our first stop, the statue of Tycho Brahe and Johannes Kepler, and will walk from there (downhill :), trust us, you don't want to walk the hill up)

Castle District is a small area adjacent to Prague Castle. The most beautiful architecture in this city you can find here. Since the most influential aristocratic families lived here. After about 15-20 mins. walk, we will reach Prague Castle Giant's Gate, where we will let you enjoy the main change on Prague Castle Guards at 12 PM. (there is a smaller change of guards every hour, this is the only ceremonial one which is accompanied by music).

After this we will enter Prague Castle and will explore its main sights
