Prague in December?

Hello guys! I'm planning a trip with my girlfriend, and we would be in Prague from december 20th to the 23rd... I have been wondering if it would be a good idea to go there at this time of the year - kinda afraind of the weather - cold is not a problem, but It would be a shame to go and waste time in a hotel or so...

So, what do you think? Is it worth to go to Prague round this dates?

Any hints on what to do? Thank you very much!

Of coarse, it's lovely in that period.


maybe my triplist can give some inspiration... This triplist was inspired on a trip at the end of November. My sister used this list during her trip last Decmber (Christmas). Very do-able!

I was in Prague again this December between 19th and 23rd December. We had a great time as usual. The weather was faily cold but not as bad as it could have been, no real snow to speak of until the last day.

You definitely won't spend all your time in a hotel, just wrap up warm! The christmas market was great to see. Shopping centres etc were really busy compared to normal, but that is the same anywhere that close to christmas!! Didn't notice tourist type areas being any busier/quieter than usual though.

Would I choose to go back in December, rather than the normal July? Maybe not... I think I prefer Summer but it was definitely worth seeing Prague in December.

Totally agree with Rob. I was there last December and had an amazing time. Yes it will probably be cold but once you start walking around you soon forget that.

The Christmas markets are beautiful and all of the other attractions will be open too. Go for it!

Thank you all very much!

Seolram, I'll take a good look and study your list.

The cold is okay, actually it's great, living in Brazil is kinda hard for me and my girlfriend, cos we hate warm weather, so some real cold would be lovely.

It's nice to know that I won't spend my time in hotels, that the city won't be 'dead' or something... thanks =)

And will try my best to check xmas markets too! They oughta be amazing.

I was also there this last December, and loved it .We had a beautiful snowfall for three days and I dont think any city wears its mantle of snow as beautifully as does Prague, with the exception of my city :)

Whenever things got too chilly, we found some lovely warm cafe to run into and have a hot coffee .I also loved seeing the pretty christmas decorations up all over, and the Christmas market.. an exotic extra for folks from Israel.
