Bike Tour to Microbrewery and Karlstejn from Prague

4. Bike Tour to Microbrewery and Karlstejn from Prague

After pick up at your hotel it is about 20 min drive to the starting point at the very edge of Prague. This way you avoid most traffic and you start enjoying great cycling paths along the Vltava and Berounka rivers. Biking on flat trails surrounded by meadows and small towns all the way to the most beautiful and best preserved castle in Czech – Karlstejn. After about one hour break to soak the medieval atmosphere you head for a final push of about 12 kms to a microbrewery in the area. Though you have to climb a bit during the last part, it is really worth it. There are no more towns along the way, just little villages and lush countryside all around you. It seems people here live the same way as years ago, when communists operated a Czech biggest air-missile base carefully hidden in forests of a hill above you. When you arrive in the cozy village of Vseradice, you enjoy a decent late lunch and taste locally made beer. Usually master is present and if so, he is always happy to show you around (this is no scheduled tour, he just likes to talk and you like to listen…) Then you will ride back to near Karlstejn and then take a train back to your car and finally you are dropped at the hotel. Please be aware that you have to be able to cover up to 50 km with a few (easy) uphills in about 6 hours.

What people are saying about Karlštejn

Our guide, Vladimir, was great! He communicated with me the day before the tour and met us where and when he said he would. We learned a great deal from him as he drove us to Karlstejn. Once at the parking spot he offered us the choice of walking up to the castle or catching a taxi up there. We chose the taxi. At the castle he turned us over to their English-speaking guide who led us on an informative tour that lasted nearly an hour. We walked down through the village to the van. It turns out that Get Your Guide doesn’t make clear that the glass factory is not open on Sunday so after our tour of the castle we went straight to the Kozel brewery for a tour followed by a delicious (and very filling) Czech lunch nearby. Thanks to all the food and Kozel, we were much quieter on the way home. Vladimir was kind enough to drop us off at our lodgings.

Fantastic Day Trip!! Excellent local guide!

This tour offered much more than we expected. Our guide, Erika, shared her thorough knowledge of Czech history, culture, politics and folklore throughout the tour. The caves were an interesting, off the beaten path stop. The castle is a must see if your visiting Prague and this tour provided much more than a trip to castle. The traditional Czech lunch was also amazing. Highly recommend if you are looking for a fun day trip from Prague.

The weather was perfect and the guide was incredibly accommodating. It was a wonderful experience.

superb day visit of the castle thanks to the guide Josef speaking an excellent French / English

Hanna and Paul were awesome. Tour’s were very fun and very informative. 5 Stars!
