Bike tour description
Join us on a bike trip to Karlštejn Castle, a 14th-century Gothic castle, just outside of Prague. On the way, we'll follow a route that Charles IV also used to get to his castle. You'll enjoy the picturesque Berounka river valley. The distance of 36 km has been wisely chosen to avoid roads and peacefully contemplate the beautiful Bohemian Karst forests. The meeting point with the guide is at Parking lot Podolská, just by the tram station "DVORCE". You can easily get there with tram no. 3, 17, 20 or 21 from the city center.
From here we will ride on mostly flat asphalt paths, as well as a few dirt ones. Don't worry about being fit or experienced, as the trip is suitable for everyone. Mid-way through, we can stop for some coffee or alcohol-free beer and, given the appropriate weather, take a dip in the river. At the end of our ride, you are free to attend a 1-hour castle tour (entrance fee not included, Note, that long queues are formed in summer).
After lunch at a local restaurant, we will head back by train to Prague main station, and cycle back to the original meeting point, at Dvorce tram station.
The guided tour includes
- Bike rental
- Safety Helmet
- 1 bottle of water
