Full description
On this half-day Karlstejn Castle tour from Prague, visit a majestic Gothic castle founded 650 years ago by Charles IV, King of Bohemia and of the Roman Empire. The castle was built in the 14th century as a place for safekeeping of royal treasures, especially the coronation jewels. Located in a picturesque site, the castle sits on Dragon's Rock in the middle of dense forests just about an hour drive from Prague. For many visitors, this is one of the most popular destinations. The price includes entry to the castle and a free tasting of Original Karlstejn Mead. This tour also involves 30 minutes of walking.

    Leuke trip. Mooi kasteel. Helaas zaten niet alle torens bij de prijs in. Dus niet alles gezien. Jammer dat dat niet aangegeven was op de site van getyourguide. Mooie omgeving. Zeker de moeite waard.

    There is no option to have a cab or horse drawn buggy to the castle. only offered the basic tour with no time to look around on our own . Was told to get to the meeting point and the tour bus arrived late. We were not offered a restroom break before the tour started at the castle.

    Helaas was onze groep kennelijk te divers waardoor we met 6 mensen 50 minuten hebben moeten wachten op een andere Engelse tour om bij aan te sluiten. Deze groep was zo groot, 50-60 mensen, dat de gids grotendeels niet te volgen was alleen als je steeds zorgde dat je vooraan liep en stond bij haar in de buurt. Deze gids was overigens heel goed en heel enthousiast.
