Karlštejn Castle is located outside the southwestern end of Prague. The asphalt route we'll ride runs along the Berounka River and through the villages of Černošice & Dobřichovice. If you want to experience the gorgeous Czech countryside and escape the pressures of the city, this tour is for you.
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 roughly 36 km trip was chosen to avoid roads and view the beautiful Bohemian Karst forests. We are going to meet on Parking lot Podolská just on the tram station "DVORCE". You can get there easy with tram no. 3, 17, 20 or 21 from the city center. After we we'll ride on mostly flat asphalt paths, as well as a few forest ones. Don't worry about being fit or experienced - the trip is suitable for everyone. Mid-way through, we can stop for some coffee or alcohol-free beer and you can take a dip in the river. After lunch at a local restaurant, we'll head to the Karlstejn castle. At the end of our ride, you can attend a 1 hour castle tour (not included in my experience).
