Full description
“Let us take you to the most stunning castle in the Czech Republic, avoiding all traffic en route.“ You will avoid cars by starting your ride right on the edge of Prague, where you will arrive from your hotel. About 97% of the ride follows designated (mostly paved) cycling paths, and before seeing the castle for the first time, you will enjoy peaceful Czech countryside and lush green forests that will make you think you’re much farther than a few minutes from Prague by train. If you feel like it, you can stop for a swim at the river or have a break at one of many little biker cafés frequented by local cyclists. Or perhaps take a short break at a popular bakery? If you prefer only paved tracks, no problem, if you don’t mind a bit of dirt, your tour operator knows some easy shortcuts. The best comes at the very end of your ride, when you will be taken to a meadow tucked away between dense forest. From here, there is the most stunning view of the Karlstejn castle, so stunning not simply because Karlstejn is suddenly below you, but as you will see nothing but the castle and forests around you. Suddenly, you'll feel as Charles IV and his companions might just march past on their horses. If you're interested, guests are welcome to attend a 55-minute tour inside the castle (170 CZK, not included in price), though we think castle’s beauty is rather outside than inside. If you are a beginner or intermediate biker and want to explore the Czech Republic capital’s surroundings, this is the way to go! Feel free to join your guide for a lunch at their favorite restaurant by the castle at the end of the ride (included in price). Finally, return to Prague by a pleasant 40-minute train ride, leaving your bike at Karlstejn.

A nice ride through a fairly scenic route. You won’t have time to go into the castle for a tour but it’s nice to see from the outside apparently. If the group is small, the guide will give you options on routes to tailor it according to your fitness level. Would recommend getting padded cycling shorts because the pain I felt at my butt was the limiting factor towards the end. Coming from someone who does not cycle daily.

Picked up in front of our place, ride outside of the city by car and then start of the bike tour. Quiet nice to go in the morning to avoid the crowd and the big temperature. Barbara is making sure you are not missing anything and offering multiple stops along the way. The pace was nice, fast enough to enjoy the ride but with still time to look around to the beautiful countryside. Last up hill to the panorama was quiet the challenge but that’s enjoyable and only a few min of the trip. We didnt visit the inside of the castle, this activity is more about the journey than the destination, but thanks to the train ticket back home you can decide how much time you want to spend around the castle! I would recommend it to people that enjoy biking casually and that would like to get out of Prague for half a day or more.

Great trip would rebook again if I go back to Prague

I had a wonderful bike trip with Anna. It was her first time doing this tour but definitely not her first time being a tour guide. She arrived on time, in a comfortable vehicle, with great bikes for us to ride. She was full of knowledge of the area and very enjoyable to talk with during the trip. The trip was an easy ride except for the last hill it prior to seeing the castle but that hill was worth the view when you rounded the corner.
