Walking Tour Prague: Old Town + Castle (changing of the guards and Golden Lane)

Duration: 3h and 30min
Languages: German, English, Dutch
Quality Verified Registered on October 20, 2023

Walking through an open-air museum with the guides of I Love Praag Dobrý den I am Huig den Boer owner of I love Praag. I am a young Dutch man in my thirties who previously worked in the healthcare sector and worked with great passion as a bus driver in and around the beautiful city of Utrecht, the most beautiful city in the Netherlands. In addition to this job, I worked as one of the permanent guides of I Love Praag in Prague and first did tours as a hobby (15 years) and now professionally in the Czech city of Prague. This is because I am in love with this European capital. Since 2023 I live completely in Prague. No matter how beautiful a city like Rome or Berlin is, I don't immediately catch a spark like when I leave Prague airport. All our guides speak fluent English, German and Dutch. Are you going on tour with me or with my colleagues in Prague?

Tour description

The Castle Complex in the city of Prague is the largest castle complex in the world. During the tour we see all the important places within the castle complex. We see St. Vitus Cathedral, visit the “Golden Lane” and pass the “Lobkowics Palace”. Once we have seen all these special places, we continue our way towards the Charles Bridge and the “Old Town”. In the Old Town we of course pass the Old Town Square and the “Astronomical Clock”. We end the tour at the Powder Tower, the border between the old and new towns. We introduce you to the city like real locals and we also visit some hidden places along the way.

This walking tour is easy to complete for any group/family (not too much of an effort).

Additional information:
- The tour normally lasts about 2.5 hours, but we reserve 3.5 hours as standard so that we have enough time to see everything special we encounter.
- A maximum of 25 people participate per tour so that sufficient attention can be given to each participant.
- Unfortunately, we do not accept group bookings from groups of more than 6 people. This is due to the risk that a group will cancel at the last minute or not even show up at all.

Eine sehr interessante Tour, die auch die versteckten Ecken zeigt. Man sollte allerdings gut ausgeruht sein, um die 3 Stunden auch durchzuhalten

Mit dieser Tour sieht man tatsächlich alles wichtige. Ausdauer und Wanderdisziplin mitbringen. Abspringen von der Tour ist allen , also dem Führer und den anderen Teilnehmern gegenüber, unfair. Die Führung dauert tatsächlich 3,5 Std. Sie ist aufgrund der Strecke und der Informationen nicht kürzer durchführbar. Wer das vorher weiß und nicht so lange durchhalten kann, bitte andere Tour buchen. Tour ist gut geplant: Treffpunkt oben an der Burg und dann abwärts in die Stadt, also kann anstrengendes Aufsteigen dabei. Vielen Dank für die schöne Führung!
