Top ways to experience Prague Castle
The area
Address
Neighborhood: Hradcany & Letna
Your experience in Prague will never be complete if you do not see it from the top. Hillsides, stretched from the west to the north, provide spectacular views of greenish copper cupolas, narrow cobblestone streets, bridges connecting both river banks and green gardens from red-roof tops of centuries-old houses. Prague pulls you into its 1300 year old history. Walking up the hill or stairs to Prague Castle, the historical seat of Czech rulers and the majestic Saint Vitus Cathedral can leave you speechless (and out of breath). Luckily, plenty of terrace cafés overlooking gardens and beautiful parks are available to provide rest and a place to catch your breath again.

Great History
Dec 2021
Great walk up to the Castle with some super views along the way - cross the Charles Bridge and take the steps up - makes your legs ache but well worth it! The Cathedral and Golden Lane are particularly worth seeing - really interesting.

Castle on the hill
Nov 2021
Definitely worth checking out on a first-time visit to Prague. Large castle complex on a hill (so offers nice views of the city below), with plenty to see inside, so be sure to give yourself adequate time (at least a few hours) if you want to see "everything" you can that's included in the...basic ticket? I forget the name now, but it includes four sites.

The Golden Lane was our favorite part of the castle complex. Interesting to see how the castle guards lived "back in the day" (the 16th century, I believe). The armory museum on the second level is also worth a look-see.

Can’t Miss It If You Visit Prague
Nov 2021 • Couples
It is big and on top of a hill. So, Uber or take public transportation to the top entrance and walk through the complex and downhill all the way back to Mala Strana.
There are many buildings in the complex and one ticket will provide entrance into most of them. The main cathedral is really Gothic and quite beautiful. We moved pretty quickly through the rest. The last palace has the big art collection and that has a separate entry fee.

Must visit in Prague
Sep 2021 • Couples
Great spot to spend a day with family. It quite big and you need a whole day to cover. Go with extra water bottles, some snacks and you can also take a tour guide. Tram 22 takes you to castle complex from old town. Walking back to old town is mostly downhill and easy to walk.

You must visit Prague Castle!
Jun 2021
If you are in Prague, you just must visit also Prage Castle, the seat of Czech President. It is on the hill, so is visible almost from everywhere and you will have then nice view to the Prague. If u are lucky and it will be opened, visit also Spanish hall in the castle, which is the most beautiful hall in the castle. But its open only rarely.

Large, government buildings and churches with pretty garden
Sep 2021
Situated above the hill and visible throughout the city, the Prague Castle is a sight to be seen. It's home to many government offices and a large cathedral, but it can be a bit pricey.
Entering the Castle grounds is free, but tickets to go into buildings were 250 CZK (~ €9,90) and only available inside the castle next to the cathedral. There is an extra charge to go up the tower (€ ~5,90). The ticket gets you into 5 buildings.
The Church is nice and pretty with lots of old paintings and high ceilings. The old council building was a bit disappointing, it looks like a large hall with some paintings. The "golden lane" was actually interesting where you can see inside of the houses and how it used to be.
The gardens surrounding the castle are pretty. I definitely recommend going north gardens where you can see a diverse selection of trees and plants (all labeled).

Great experience

Lovely castle. Very hilly to walk up to, with lots of steps. Once in the grounds there are lots of great views and buildings to enter (for a fee). There are several cafes and museums also.
