We read a lot about the beautiful interior of the Wallenstein Palace Gardens, but the opening hours are so limited (one weekend a month) that we were never able to visit the location. We could peek in here and there; we saw many diplomats and officials of the Czech Parliament which meets in the Palace, but inside remains a mystery. Hard to rate an attraction if one can't see it.

Hidden behind a huge wall lays this beautiful garden. Only entry is through an anonymous door in the wall. Beautiful architecture of the garden, with statues and fountains. Best to visit when walking down from the castle.

This garden is beautifully landscaped and houses many statues that date back centuries.There are water fountains and it is a beautiful peaceful retreat.There are also concerts there in the afternoon, unfortunately the timing did not work for us.
The garden is somewhat hidden and easy to miss, nice place to take a break. There is also a very interesting wall there, it is black, looks like a rock, but it is man made. It cleverly conceals faces, animals and strange creatures.It is centuries old as everything around you in Prague. While there, I have seen artists trying to capture it, painting in charcoal, others just took pictures.

Often closed ... the gardens and the palace are very good places to spend 1 h ... maybe after the Castle

We love gardens. We found this garden by accident, walking back to our hotel in Mala Strana. I spotted an opening in a wall and we fortunately walked in. There were not many people, which added to our enjoyment (Prague was overwhelmed with tourists in mid-September). We spent about an hour and would have spent more but we were exhausted from a long day of walking and still had to make it back to our hotel. The garden has a duck pond, formal flower beds, bronze statues of heroes from Greek mythology. There is a unique and interesting man-made Dripstone wall, with gargoyle like figures (you can see this wall from the palace). There is also a strange aviary full of grotesque owls. Entrance is free of charge.
