Prague day trips and outdoor adventures

Prague is one of Europe’s – if not the world’s – favorite tourist destinations. And who could argue against it. The city of a hundred spires is beautiful all year around and it has it all: plenty of good stories nested in the historical sights, a buzzing nightlife, cute little cafés and an ever-growing dining scene.

Just to give you a few reasons to stop by Europe’s Famous Czech Inn Hostel & Hotel!

But there is more to explore in Czech Republic, and the guys from Czech Inn will be more than happy to tell you where to go for hikes through untouched nature, fairytale towns & castles and quirky sights like the bone church in Kutná Hora. Go visit – spring is here, summer is coming so get out and do some Prague day trips!

Bohemian Switzerland

Bohemian Switzerland is a great destination for hiking lovers. Get ready for stunning views, the biggest sandstone arch in Europe (scenes from the Chronicles of Narnia movie were filmed here!), easy going trails through beautiful scenery and take a dinghy ride in a river canyon. The region is awarded as “The European Destination of Excellence” by the EU – and just a two-hour drive away from Prague. Northern hikes are taking you there!

Karlštejn Castle and Velká & Malá Amerika

Just a 40 minutes train ride from Prague you’ll find yourself in a fairytale. Find your path through the picturesque village and visit one of Emperor Charles IV.’s masterpieces: the castle dates back to the 14th century. Enjoy a traditional Czech lunch in one of the restaurants and continue your outdoor adventure with an easy going hike to the Canyons of Velká & Malá Amerika. If you don’t want to go on your own, Biko Adventures is ready to organize your “Big Karlštejn Adventure” from May on. They also got you covered for anything else outdoors involving MTB, road bikes and hiking from Easy to Advanced. Open all year!

Český Ráj (Czech Paradise)

Biko Adventures is also happy to take you to the Czech Paradise landscape park with its beautiful castles and sandstone rock pillars. Hikes through the dramatic rock formations, deep shady valleys, meandering rivers and quiet ponds surrounded by forests will surely put your soul to rest so you can recharge for some more Prague adventures. After all, the city is just a two hours trip away.

The Bone Church The Bone Church

Kutná Hora

Kutná Hora is one of the 12 places in the Czech Republic on UNESCO’s world heritage list, but it is most famous for its remarkable bone church, a chapel decorated with the bones of up to 40.000 people who fell victim to the black death in the 14th century. The historic center is one of the country’s prettiest with the gothic cathedral of St. Barbara. There are plenty of other historic sights and you can also take a tour of the old silver mines. Kutná Hora is also hosting Creepy Teepee Festival every year in summer. Check it out to catch up on the latest highlights of your favorite hipster’s playlist.

Český Krumlov

Don’t miss it, really! Český Krumlov is a romantic, pretty little town surrounded by beautiful countryside. If you have a few days, you can even reach it with a raft or a canoe on the Vltava. Rental services are for example available in Vyšší Brod, not far from the Austrian border. Český Krumlov is a popular tourist destination with lots of restaurants, coffee shops, museums and a friendly hostel: the Krumlov House. The trip takes 3 hours from Prague, direct buses are going almost every hour.

Terezin

The star-shaped fortress of Terezín had long served as a prison before the Nazis transformed it into a Jewish ghetto and a concentration camp on the path to the extermination camps like Mauthausen.  Good Prague tours go there on Mondays, Wednesdays, and Fridays. Their guides will talk you through the daily routines of the prisoners and will include glimpses of the culture, education, and life that prisoners held onto while being held captive.
