Prague Castle Free Tour

Book online now!

On this Free Prague Castle Tour, you will explore the area of Prague Castle and the Castle District. The tour runs every day at 11 AM.

We start the tour directly below Prague Castle and take a tram to the Castle District from where it's few minutes walk to Prague Castle - downhill 🙃. We think that is the most comfortable way to see Prague Castle.

  • You will see the main change of Prague Castle Guards accompanied by the Band of Castle Guards at 12 PM. This change happens only once a day. We plan our tour so you can see it.
  • You will enter the FREE part of the St. Vitus Cathedral.
  • You will visit all of the courtyards of Prague Castle and will see all of the historically important buildings which are in the free area of Prague Castle.
  • After the tour is over you will still have enough time to explore the interiors of Prague Castle...if you would like to. Free Castle tours do not include the interiors, since you need a ticket to enter places like Old Royal Palace, St. George's Basilica, and Golden Lane. The interiors close at 4 PM in winter and 5 PM in summer.

Things to know before visiting Prague Castle
