These are quite beautiful gardens well worth visiting, even in late autumn / early winter they were quite lovely and as it was beautiful sunny day when I was there it was a real joy to visit.

Like to stop by on every visit, this well hidden garden is truly peaceful. Of course the peacocks and the fountain are beautiful, and so is the view of the castle from there. Here you can take beautiful picture without hundreds of people in them with you. It is a very well kept garden, as most of them in Prague... More

It is certainly a challenge to find the entrance to this place, even though it's a stone's throw from the Malostranska Metro stop, but it had to be one of my favorite sites in Prague. Beautiful, tranquil, free, what more can you want? A romantic 20-minute visit with some beautiful scenery and a thought-provoking limestone wall.

I love Prague, but if I have to choose, this would be my favorite place. The pictures we took there are magical, painting like, as if you have entered a fairy tale scenery. Loved every corner of it, and I would go back this second to rest on the benches and enjoy the peace and quiet under the sun.

The Wallenstein are hiding behind a wall and its one of Prague's most well-known secrets :) Open between 1st of April till the end of October, the gardens are beautiful and special, with peacocks running around. It's usually not so crowded either so you can catch a little rest on one of the benches around and enjoy the green in... More

Prague is a such a beautiful city so it is really hard to compare one place to another but if you are in the area and the Wallenstein Palace Garden is open it is definitely worth checking out. Even better, it is free which felt great after a week in Prague and starting to run low on money. A nice,... More

This place is located outside the sight of the main tourist street. Take the A (green line) to metro station Malostranská. Go up all the escalators and at the top turn left. Right when you get outside turn right. There will be a gate and then a little door to the garden. The entrance is a little hard to find... More

A nice place for a respite from the heat, but I always expect to see flowers in gardens, not just shrubs and trees and one shy peacock. A bit disappointing.

What a nice place. Like walking into wonder land. The green, the fountains, the sculptures. Even a white peacock! And to top it all, a strange wall. Glad I got there.

So glad we searched out this garden. Wander the grounds, saw some peacocks, interesting statues and that weird wall. Sat quietly with my hubby and enjoyed the scenery.
