What to expect

Enjoy a bike ride through the spectacular Czech countryside on your way to the 650-year-old Karlstejn Castle of King Charles IV.

The Karlstejn Castle bike tour rolls you southwest of Prague along the Vltava and Berounka Rivers and through the Czech countryside to the gothic fortress built by King Karel IV to house the imperial jewels and his collection of holy relics. Karlstejn Castle, with its enchanting, monumental architecture is one of the most-visited castles in the country.

You start the guided bike trip to Karlstejn from the Praha Bike office in the center of Prague. The cycling time to the castle takes about 3.5-4 hours and has a flat terrain. During the trip you will pass through several villages, making observation and refreshments stops. Upon your arrival at Karlstejn Village, you will stop for lunch in a traditional Czech restaurant. Then, you leave the bikes behind to walk (15 min) up to the castle grounds. Your guide will introduce you to the history of the castle as well as the life of Karel IV and will show you castle exteriors, courtyards, and viewpoints.

Note: The tour does not take you into the castle.

You will return back to Prague by train. Trains depart from Karlstejn to Prague approx every 30 min with the journey lasting 40 min. The trip ends at the Praha Bike office around 5.30pm. For the whole trip, you will be accompanied by your friendly and very helpful tour guide.
