Four Seasons Hotel Prague Invites Guests to Become Kings and Queens of the Castle. Guided off-hours private tour of Karlstejn Castle includes areas usually closed to the public.
Ever wandered through a famous castle, wishing that
all the tourists were gone and you could have the place to yourself?
The gothic castle of Karlstejn was built in 1348 and named after the Czech King and Roman Emperor Charles IV. Charles IV was a great influence on the imperial capital of Prague, and today the city bears many reminders of his vision, including Charles University, Charles Square and the majestic Charles Bridge, just to name a few. It was at Karlstejn Castle that he stowed his royal treasures for safekeeping, including his collection of holy relics and the coronation jewels of the Roman Empire.
Exclusive to Four Seasons Hotel Prague, guests can now experience a private tour of Karlstejn Castle in the evening or at night after closing hours. A private guide will take guests through the castle and relate stories and myths related to this magical place and the people who lived there. On a mystic journey lit by a flamed torch, both residential and social areas are visited, including the rarely seen Chapel of the Holy Cross, normally closed to the public.
The castle is located an hour’s drive from Prague, overlooking the Berounka River, where she stands in silence as a respectful and gracious witness to some of the greatest and most charming history in the Crown Lands of Bohemia.
The half-day Karlstejn Castle tour includes a limousine and driver, a private
guide and the entrance fee for
