Admission for Golden Lane was included in our Circuit B ticket for Prague Castle. There are some cute shops and it was fun to see a soldier's old living quarters, etc. but there really isn't a lot to see. It's pretty lackluster, especially when compared...More

There was some historical background behind the Golden Lane, but as it stands now, it look more like a tourist trap. There is quite a collection of armor, a torture chamber, and living quarters as they once were, but nothing really significant stands out. The...More

This could be a great place to visit if you can get there before the crowds make it an unpleasant experience. Golden Lane is a very narrow road with a row of brightly coloured houses built in the late 1500 that used to be occupied...More

Ok, maybe I just don't get it. There are thousands of tourists funneled into this narrow street with an even narrower exit point. And we were there on "non-crowded" day, we were told. There is not that much to see on the lane. I understand...More

Included in Tour B of Prague Castle... now basically a crowded tourist trap with souvenir shops, a small exhibition of armour and several "preserved" workshops which can be viewed from a glassed in entrance. Not worth seeing.

Walk through the tiny homes of the servants to the Prague castle. Take the stairs up to the watch windows where the guards stood on patrol. This is at the end of the castle tour and on your way to the exit.

Golden Lane is a pit stop strategically situated at the end of the tour in Prague Castle. Originally built in the 16th century, to house Rudolf II's castle guards, it takes its name from the goldsmiths that lived there in the 17th century. Present houses...More

I found this area is the least interesting of all the Castle district. If it wasn't included in the price of the ticket I had would not have stopped to see it.

There are some of the houses set-up to show how people lived hundreds of years ago. Some of the houses are set-up as tourist shops. On the 2nd floor of the houses there is a long long walkway the entire length of the lane that...More

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.

Indeed, the required ticket does include access to other parts of the complex. i recall paying the equivalent of roughly 5 dollars US for them per person. I bought them right outside the gates to the lane in a little... More
