Description

This tour is a mixture of facts, mysteries and legends, to entertain and inform.

As night falls and the crowds thin, we’ll take you from the Old Town Square, across the river Vltava, to the palaces, monasteries and monuments of Prague Castle. This tour gives you a unique view of this famous site, when the tour parties and crowds have gone, and will introduce you to some of the darker parts of the Castle’s history. 

We will walk through the lanes and courtyards where alchemists and astrologers once worked, visit the monastery, hear about the "Devil’s Bible", and stop for a while by the "Hole to Hell".  Your guide will lead you through the city’s dark and often esoteric history, from the days of Pagan shrines to the "Alchemist Emperor" Rudolf II and right up to the recent past, to the Nazi occupation and the days of the Communist secret police.

As well as some stunning views of Prague by night, you’ll also have the chance to see the Golden Lane, once the home of Franz Kafka. The tour also includes a short tram ride from the Mala Strana (ticket is included in the tour price).

Sights on the tour we cover:
Old Town Square, Manes Bridge, Petrin Hill, Summer Palace, Strahov Monastery, Cernin Palace, The Loreto, Novy Svet, The New World, Domecek, Secret Police and Gestapo prison, Powder Tower, St Vitus Cathedral, St George’s Basilica, Golden Lane, St Wenceslas’ Vineyard, Wallenstein Palace and much more…

#1 Rating: 4 stars From: Kathy Simandl, added: April 02, 2014 I was leery of a big group tour, but this one was great! The main thing was being at the castle after the crowds are gone. The atmosphere is magical at night, and I took tons of photos of the lighted up buildings and city... Not to be missed! Our guide, Veronika, was personable and very accommodating. I made a suggestion, and she put it in action right away! The operators of this tour were also very helpful in making this 3 hour walking tour as comfortable as possible, and I recommend this tour
#2 Rating: 5 stars From: Markus Gentzsch, added: March 23, 2014 This tour is one of the highlights of our trip to Prague! We walked 3 hours with Veronika, a very professional and friendly guide. Veronika showed us round the castle, which was nearly abandoned in the night. I think, I will always remember the beauty of the shining hradschin mixed with very awe-inspiring stories. Thank you, Veronika!
#3 Rating: 5 stars From: Sally Houchin, added: February 28, 2014 Our tour guide was Betty, who showed us around prague castle at night! Betty was a first class guide who was very knowledgeable and able to answer ANY question we threw her way. Betty made the tour magical with her true love of the history of this beautiful city. I recommend this tour, just wear comfy shoes and wrap up warm and enjoy the legends! Thanks Betty
