Stand on the odd lane where Franz Kafka lived and invented his ‘kafkaesque’ stories. Find out if Rudolf, the alchemist king, the mad king, was able to turn lead into gold after all. Learn how Vaclav Havel freed the country from Communism. We call it “the Velvet Revolution” because he had no weapon – only a fountain pen.
This sunset tour of the Prague Castle is not a history lesson. It is a stroll, full of photo opps and of beautiful moments to remember. The ghosts of Franz Kafka and Vaclav Havel whisper into your ear. They guide you around the Castle to share the best views of Prague and the best-kept secrets of the Castle.

Why take this tour?
If you want to see Prague’s #1 thing to do, this Sunset Castle tour is (in our opinion) the best way to do it. Your guide greets you on “Malostranske Namesti” plaza, near the Charles bridge. You hop on tram #22, Prague’s romantic tram line.
You enter the Castle through Parade Gate. Your guide walks you through the “garden of freedom”, designed by President Vaclav Havel to commemorate the Velvet Revolution. It is sunset, so you have the place quite to yourselves.
You tour inner courtyards, and private lanes and alleys.
You peek inside the castle, and you take in vast views over the city and its 100 spires.
All along, your guide gives you context and stories. How come Franz Kafka lived in the castle? How did King Rudolf get so interested in alchemy?
The tour ends where it started. Your guide will gladly help you get back to your hotel, or else pick a place for you to eat or enjoy some Czech beer.
