ABOUT

Our 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 . 
We start the guided bike trip to Karlstejn from the Praha Bike office in the center of Prague. Our cycling time to the castle takes about 3.5-4 hours and has a flat terrain. During our trip we will pass through several villages, making observation and refreshments stops. Upon our arrival at Karlstejn Village (population 800) we stop for lunch in a traditional Czech restaurant. Then, we leave our 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, courtyard and view points. 
Note: We do not take the castle interior guided tour. But if the time allows guests have the option of taking an interior guided tour (55 min, Adults-330 Kc, Children, Students & Seniors-180 Kc, more about admission). Please let us know in advance if you are interested.

We return back to Prague by train. Trains depart from Karlstejn to Prague approx every 30 min with the journey lasting 40 min. Our trip ends at the Praha Bike office around 17:30. For the whole trip you will be accompanied with our friendly and very helpful tour guide. 

Note: Use of regular & electric bikes are allowed for the same tour. The tour goes at an easy and not a fast pace and using an e-bike will not make you go faster but makes the trip easier.
