Free Guided Walking Tour

This carefully selected walk covers all the most important sights of Prague, and seeing it with a great guide is like having the past suddenly rise to the surface. We stroll around the famous historical Prague quarters – Old Town, Jewish Quarter, Lesser Town and Prague Castle.

 

Free Tour GuideThe first part starts on the Old Town Square with a general introduction to Prague. Admiring the impressive composition of old buildings and churches, we also become acquainted with the life of the Czech reformer John Huss.

 

Crooked lanes lead us back around other keyholes into Prague’s past: Mozart‘s Don Giovanni in the Estates Theatre, Karolinum - the Charles University since 1348, the cubist house of the Black Madonnathe and the medieval courtyard Ungelt. If there’s time we also visit the Powder Gate and the majestic baroque building of Municipal House.

 

A visit to the Jewish Quarter leads us back to its tragic history. You discover the destiny of Prague Jews living behind the wall of the former ghetto. The Old-New Synagogue, the Old Jewish Cemetery, the Jewish Museum … visit with us the places where the fabulous Golem was created, and follow with us in the footsteps of the famous Jewish writer Franz Kafka. 

 

After this, we walk to the Marianske Square, where you have a 30-minute break from 12:45 till 13.15. At this stage you can decide whether you wish to continue after the break, or if you prefer you can come another day for the second part of the tour.

 

Our starting point for the second part is the beautiful baroque library of Klementinum. Crossing the Charles Bridge, the real “open gallery under the sky”, we admire the peaceful tiny Kampa Island, followed by the graffiti on Lennon Wall. Finally we reach the Lesser Town Square, the highlight of which is the great St. Nicholas Church. After a relaxing visit to the great St. Nicholas Church, we climb 200 steps leading to the Hradcanske Square. Here we reach Prague Castle, one of the biggest fortresses in Europe. This “city within the city” hides the Schwarzenberg Palace, Archbishop's Palace, Old Royal Palace, the Basilica of St. George ... and the greatest architectural treasure - St. Vitus Cathedral. The walk finishes next to the Old Royal Palace with a charming view of Prague, the city of a hundred spires. It is really easy to walk, simple to understand and great to enjoy!

Free Tour in Prague

 

I have seen other free walking tours in Prague. What is the difference between your complimentary tour and other companies offering free tours? All other free tours are run by volunteers who work only for their tips. That means that tour is tips-based. Our tours are run by paid tour guides and tips are not required. Please note that some tour operators of those free tours will provide the first part of the tour for free and the second for an extra charge (at the end of the first part you might be offered to continue your tour to the Castle, but only if you choose to pay).

We are visiting Prague in March 2013. Our transfer from the airport is part of the holiday package. We would like to join the free walking tour.

Hi Walking Tour,

Is the tour available on a fee pay basis for those not utilising Prague Airport transfers as we arrive via train from Krakow and would be happy to pay the same commission/ fee paid by Prague Airport Transfers.

We arrive in Prague on Wed 13th June and would love to participate in the walking tour on Thursday 14th June 2012

Kind regards
Louise

Hello

I'm visiting Prague at the beginning of April with my husband and am very much looking forward to it. I'm really interested in your walking tour, however, we are transferred to our hotel by our holiday tour company. Can I still get a voucher for the walking tour from somewhere?

Thank you

You can take advantage of free walking tour once you get the voucher. If your holiday tour company has an arrangement with Prague Airport Transfers then you will receive a voucher from their driver. Otherwise you will have to book some other paid tour. There are also other free tour guide providers but they will ask you for a small contribution, so it’s not really free.
