15 things to do in Prague



15 things to do in Prague on a weekend trip

Welcome to my personal top 15 list of things to do on a weekend trip to Prague. We did all these things (and a couple of more) while staying in Prague on a weekend in May 2017 from Friday to Sunday. And we had a WONDERFUL time. Therefore, I would like to share some of the things we did in Prague as weekend tourists. However, not in chronological order, travel-friendly shoes being required and looooots of photos (I APOLOGIZE for the photo overload - be kind with me, I'm in LOVE with Prague). Let's go. Enjoy the ride.

Ich möchte euch sehr gern auf eine retrospektive Wochenendreise nach Prag einladen. Fernab - und dennoch mit Besuch - von Wenzelsplatz, Prager Burg, Karlsbrücke & Co., lernten wir Prag im Mai 2017 als eine wunderschöne Stadt mit viel Grün, verborgenen Gärten, romantischen Plätzen, urigen Kneipen und freundlichen Menschen kennen. Die Stadt kann aus meiner Sicht trubelliebende Touristen ebenso begeistern wie Reisende, die Ruhe, Entspannung und Entschleunigung finden möchten. Neben fotografisch dargebotenen Eindrücken enthält der heutige Post 15 Tipps und persönliche Vorschläge für einen Aufenthalt in Prag. Die Hinweise zu den Bildern sind in englischer Sprache, ich hoffe, ihr könnt auch anhand der Fotos den einen oder anderen Tipp für euch mitnehmen. Los geht's. Kommt mit auf eine Reise in diese wunderschöne, vielfältige und begeisternde Stadt.

  1. Visiting Charles Bridge early in the morning (around 8 a.m.) to find this view with wedding shootings going on and cleaning staff making their way over the bridge ...














  2. ... compared to this view during rush hour with the crowds.




  3. Riding on tram no. 22 to see the main sights of Prague, watch out for ticket machines and have some coins at hand, the machines don't accept bank notes






  4. Eating a Trdelník (rolled dough wrapped around a stick, grilled and topped with sugar and walnut mix) and/or having some fresh juice










  5. Enjoying the wonderful pub atmosphere in Prague at Pivovar a restaurace U Valšů, Betlémská 5, Praha 1 - Staré město. We witnessed a bachelor party here with the bridegroom-to-be wearing a supergirl costume (had to edit the photo because there was something kinky hanging from underneath the costume).






  6. Strolling around the large and beautiful Letná Park with Prague Metronome, a beautiful view of Prague and lots of green and the 'potential for personal recreation and outdoor enjoyment'

Riding up Petřín hill by railway (or climbing 299 steep steps to reach the hill) to see the Petrin Observation Tower (a mini version of Paris's Eiffel Tower), to have fun in the Mirror Cabinet and to walk down back to enjoy the breathtaking atmosphere of this huge, green oasis with beautiful flowers and benches to sit down and relax




















  8. Visiting the scenic area of historic fort Vyšehrad with Vyšehrad cemetry (many famous people are buried here among them famous Czech composers Antonín Dvořák and Bedřich Smetana), flea market on the weekend, beautiful views of Prague and lots of green space, meadows and benches to sit down and relax
