This is a tour that is guaranteed to make your spirits bright.

We’ll get in the holiday spirit with an introduction to the classic Czech Christmas: a nativity scene in a grand church. We’ll then hop on board the metro and escape the bustle of the center to experience the first market on our list of stops. Here, you’ll get to taste mulled wine and we’ll sample our first Christmas snack. As we eat and explore, you’ll learn about local holiday traditions like Christmas carps, find out what baby Jesus has to do with a little hedgehog, why there’s no Santa in this part of the world, and what Christmas means in this mostly secular nation. You’ll discover that locals in Prague have a lot of holiday traditions that are very different from what you might expect!

Then, we'll be dashing through the snow to our second Christmas market, where we’ll walk along some of the beautiful streets of Prague. At the market, you’ll be greeted by hot mead and roasted almonds. We’ll also take a moment to point out some of the best places for you to visit while you’re in Prague over the holidays. After warming up with our tasty treats, we’ll make our way back to the city center, where you’ll learn about Christmas before, during, and after the 1989 revolution.

At our third and final Christmas market, you’ll be seeing the market that put Prague on the Christmas map. The Old Town Square’s impressive tree is only one of the spectacles to admire here; the square in the winter is captivating with all its sights and smells and sounds of the market adding to the overall holiday experience.

It’s here that our tour will end, but that doesn’t mean you have to leave the festivities! We’ll leave you at the Old Town Square to explore to your heart’s content — after all, there are dozens of reasons to venture further into the Christmas markets of Prague. So go on, have a(nother) cup of mead and lose track of time!

Once this tour concludes, you'll sleep in heavenly peace!
