Tour Details

Karlstejn Castle was built by Emperor Charles IV from 1348 to 1357 to safeguard the crown jewels of the Holy Roman Empire. The most unique is the Chapel of Holy Cross with walls inlaid by semi-precious stones and gold and 128 panel paintings of saints from the workshop of Master Theodorik. These panel paintings make one of the largest collections of the Gothic panel paintings in the world.

Walking on flat surfaces – smooth and cobblestones, and up the hills.

Admission:

  • Imperial Residence of Charles IV (basic tour) - The tour includes historic interiors of the 1st and 2nd floors of the Imperial Palace and the 1st floor of the Marian Tower with valuable furnishings from the 14th–19th centuries (Courtiers Hall, Knights Hall with the St. Nicholas Chapel, Marian Tower Courtyard, Karlštejn Castle Deanery, Emperor´s Bedchamber with the St. Wenceslas Chapel, Audience Hall, Royal Hall of Ancestors and Banquet Hall, Karlštejn Castle Treasury and a former castle prison on the ground floor of the Marian Tower). In the Castle Treasury, you can admire a copy of the St. Wenceslas Crown, the medieval crown of the kings of Bohemia). The Well Tower (not guided, access from the Main Courtyard) – a 78-meter deep well with a unique medieval water wheel. - 250 CZK /1person (50-60 minutes)
  • Karlštejn Castle Chapels (exclusive tour) – Both most valuable and impressive rooms of this medieval castle with original and unique decoration. What will you see? Eastern wing of the Imperial Palace, the 2nd floor of the Marian Tower with the Church of the Virgin Mary and the St. Catherine Chapel, the Great Tower – stairway with original medieval wall painting decoration, Lapidarium (ground floor), castle gallery and exposition dedicated to architect Josef Mocker and his 19th-century reconstruction of the castle (1st floor) and the Chapel of the Holy Cross (2nd floor), the spiritual heart of Karlštejn Castle and once of the Holy Roman Empire as well. Due to a complicated and demanding content (religion, medieval art, spirituality...) and about 100 min duration, we do not recommend this tour to young children (up to 7 years of age). 550 CZK/1 person. From May 1. 2022 to Nov 5. 2022
