Enjoy Festival Season in Prague with Albatross Tours

Festival Season In Prague

Enjoy the festive season in Prague with Albatross Tours, capital of the Czech Republic and an enchanting jewel of Central Europe. It’s well-known for its lively festive season as the city comes alive in a spectacular burst of colour and holiday cheer. Its cobbled streets create a magical backdrop adorned with charming shopfronts and historical facades that people travel from across the world to experience. It's no surprise that Prague is a popular Christmas destination for Australian and New Zealand travellers. Whilst many companies rush their tours, eager to get to the next destination, at Albatross Tours, we take our time to stop and appreciate what each city has to offer. This includes hidden gems and giving you ‘My Time’ to venture out and explore on your own. We feature two small group tours to experience the wonders of Prague’s festive season, and this blog explores the highlights of these unforgettable itineraries.

Bohemia and Christmas in the Tyrol

Our Bohemia and Christmas in the Tyrol tour will take you through 15 days of Germany, the Czech Republic, and Austria. During your two days in Prague, you'll have the chance to explore the city at your own pace, as well as a special guided tour that will take you to some of Prague's most iconic landmarks. One of the must-visit places in Prague is the majestic Prague Castle, home to the awe-inspiring St. Vitus Cathedral. Covering over 7 hectares, Prague Castle stands as the largest ancient castle in the world, boasting centuries of history and architectural beauty. You’ll also visit the iconic 16th century Golden Lane, a row of tiny, colourful houses built right into the castle walls. Each house has its own unique look and story. But Prague is more than just its castle; it's a city of laneways, churches, and picturesque bridges that beg to be explored. During your visit, make sure to wander through these charming streets and savour the rich history that permeates the city. And, of course, there will be lots of time for indulging in some Christmas magic. Prague's Christmas markets are a sight to behold, filled with the beautiful glow of festive lights and the sweet aroma of cultural treats. Be sure to try the Medovina, a delightful warm honey liquor that the region is known for.

A Medieval Bohemian Christmas

If the first tour didn't quite grab your attention, our Medieval Bohemian Christmas tour might be more your style. This journey begins with an amazing stay at the Hotel Ruze, a 500-year-old establishment nestled in the heart of the medieval town of Cesky Krumlov. But that's just the beginning! This tour takes you on a captivating journey through some of Europe's most enchanting locations, including Rothenburg, Nurnberg, Prague, and Vienna. You'll have the chance to explore the stunning Schönbrunn Palace – a testament to imperial splendour. In Prague, you'll have two days to immerse yourself in the city's festive charm, much like our main tour. A local guide will lead you through the winding streets, culminating in a visit to the magnificent Prague Castle, where St. Vitus Cathedral stands as a symbol of grandeur. Additionally, you'll have substantial 'me time' at the Christmas markets, allowing you to browse for unique gifts, try delicious seasonal treats, and experience the unique festive magic.
