Český Krumlov: Half-Day Medieval Architecture Walking Tour

Join me for a tour of Český Krumlov, the fairy-tale-like city full of charm and history. Considering the city suffered from decades of decay in the past, it is a miracle that it was possible to bring it back to its original Renaissance and Baroque look. Our tour starts at Svornosti Square, a picturesque square with its Virgin Mary pillar, Renaissance town hall and the adjacent Gothic Church of St. Vitus. Just a stone’s throw away, the tour takes us to the Jesuits Seminary garden, a true picture spot with magnificent views of the Krumlov castle and old town. Let’s hit off the beaten path alleys to finally reach the Vltava river side where we can overlook the impressive stone bridge and castle buildings. On the way, we can taste local beer or pastries. The Barber’s Bridge takes us to the crooked cobbled street of Latran. While admiring many of the original Gothic, Renaissance and Baroque houses at Latran, let's continue through the Red Gate directly to the castle or take a detour and visit the former Monastery of Minor monks. At the Český Krumlov castle, one gets astonished at the magic beauty of the castle tower and the curiosity of live bears kept at the moat. The 5 courtyards of the castle are the highlights of this tour. Admire breathtaking wall frescos dating back to 1600's. The final point, the icing of the cake, is the view of the old town and its terracotta roofs stretched around the meander of the Vltava river. Your sightseeing can continue to the Castle gardens.

Overall rating

Fascinating excursion in a fairy-tale place. I would have spent a little more time walking the narrow streets of Cesky Krumlov and poking around the alleys. The castle is very particular, the interiors highly cited and the guide was captivating and exhaustive. The location for lunch is very characteristic (former stables), excellent food. Ceske Budejovice lovely. Overall a nice excursion with great service. Highly recommended.

Definitely research the distance from your hotel to the meeting point to avoid extra charges for pick up. The trip itself was excellent. Tour guide knowledgeable and dedicated. He started talking to us from the minute bus moved. I wish the description of the tour mentioned that until April many places in the town are non functional. For example gardens were closed.

I recommend this excursion... It was worth it. All very well. We visited very beautiful places. I also want to highlight the professionalism and attention that we received at all times from our guide Victor. Thanks to him everything was wonderful. My partner Estela and I had a great time.

Our guide, Victor, was extremely knowledgeable about the country and the city we started from and the towns we visited. His English is very good and completely understandable.

Unfortunately had to cancel but the touring company was very helpful and understanding.
