Fun Things To Do In Prague

Fun Things To Do In Prague
Looking for something fun to do in Prague? We have you covered! Here are tons of awesome activities to help you entertain your family or friends and have a bit of fun!

Play live escape game
This is a fun way to engage with the city on foot, seeing places that you have never considered before... Your goal in this game is to find a way out from a difficult situation by collecting all the clues and solving different puzzles. What are you waiting for? The clock is ticking!

Watch movies under the stars
Watch popular movies under the stars and experience a night to remember. No matter if romantic classics or latest blockbusters – lots of open air cinemas all around Prague guarantee unique movie nights. With popcorn, BBQ sausages, beer and a warming blanket you are perfectly prepared for a great movie night.

Get your scare on
Enter if you dare into a world of pure darkness and experience a real horror in the heart of Prague! Don't be afraid and step into your own horror movie in the first fear house in Central Europe...
Warning: Prague Fear House may be too intense for some visitors. No children under 18 admitted without a guardian.
Admission: Adult 450 CZK

Drink all the beers you can
It is an understatement to say that the Czech Republic has a strong beer culture. So, when in Prague, taste all the beers you can! On top of that, beer can be cheaper than water.
TIP: How about to experience a beer tour? With unlimited consumption? Save your spot here!

Go for a ride in a non-stop elevator
The paternoster is an open-doored lift that's on a loop and never stops moving – simply hop in and hop off whenever you like (or ride through the last floor to do the full loop, if you dare). Many paternosters were shut down in the second half of the 20th century because of their perceived danger, but some in Prague remained and you can find them in the city center, e.g. in the Lucerna passage, YMCA Palace or in the Prague New City Hall.

Travel across the river 
Skip the hassle of driving with this simple and easy downtown-to-downtown service! Prague ferries offer the easiest & most relaxing way to travel across the Vltava River. You can take one of the six lines – two of them operating throughout the year (P1 & P2), the rest only during the season April – October.
Admission: All ferries are included in the Prague public transport system, all you need is a valid ticket.

Experience an alternative side to Prague
If you want to combine culture, history & fun in one (and experience the "real Prague"), then consider this experience. This unconventional tour will lead you through unforgettable places in Prague, ranging from a steampunk club to a backroom nicknamed 'Narnia'.

Get your adrenaline pumping
Bobsled run in Prague, that means 1-2 person sleds running down the 800 meters long chute made of steel. Scared of high speed? Don't worry, one can easily control the speed by using the brake. And after the ride a lift takes you back up to the top of the hill. Children from 3 years may try Children Rope Park with low obstacles and a big trampoline.
Admission: Adult 70 CZK / Children up to 100 cm – Free / Children up to 150 cm 50 CZK

Come play a round of black light mini-golf
Take a break from sightseeing and play an indoor mini-golf in the dark! Give your family or friends a party that they will never forget (and will appreciate it on rainy days, hot sunny days or snowy days).
Admission: Adult 200 CZK / Children up to 120 cm 50 CZK / Children 120 CZK / Family 500 CZK

Go up the Petřín Hill
Petřín Hill is one of the best places for children. Not only because of the funicular ride and the lookout tower, there's a mirror maze up here, too. The maze is quite small but it would be still fun for kids (and adults as well) seeing yourself becoming shorter or longer.
TIP: Better go during weekdays, weekends are crowded
Admission: Adult 120 CZK / Children 70 CZK / Family 250 CZK

Observe the night sky
Petřín hill has more to offer than the lookout tower or the mirror maze. Štefánik's Observatory is opened to the public for day & night sky observations and explains the knowledge of astronomy to all visitors – big or small.
Admission: Adult 80 CZK / Children 3-15 years old 50 CZK / Family 140 CZK
TIP: Put attention to the opening hours, it's changing by the year season, working days and weekend

Imagine all the lights go out
The Invisible Exhibition is one-of-a-kind interactive experience that gives you the opportunity to understand what life is like without one of our major senses – sight. You'll be encouraged to rely on your other senses as you experience various every-day life situations such as ordering and paying for a meal, trying to cross a road or picking the right ingredients for your meal.
TIP: It's recommended to reserve your spot in advance (especially in foreign languages)
Admission fees vary, check the official website of the exhibition for more details here.

Throw a picnic lunch
Magical outdoor fun is all around us, no matter the location (but we highly recommend the Stromovka Park, Petřín Hill or Vítkov Hill – especially for amazing views). Throw a picnic lunch together and find a shady spot to enjoy a sunny day with your loved ones or watch the sunset.

Ride a bike
Discover romantic places of historical interest, not crowded with tourists, new city neighborhoods pulsating with daily life, parks and scenic views, modern architecture, public transport, local restaurants, cafés, pubs, shops and more with our Local Michal H.!

Rent your own paddleboat
There's nothing more charming and romantic than rent a small boat and see the city from a different perspective. The paddleboat is absolutely easy to handle, so gather up your friends and hit up one of the many rental spots around town. (Unfortunately this is a season & weather-dependent activity)
TIP: Looking for a travel buddy? Our Local Michal S. is able to arrange (almost) everything for you in Prague!

Take a selfie at the John Lennon Wall
The wall is located in the picturesque Little Quarter neighborhood, not far away from the Charles Bridge and it's very popular place to get a photo (especially on a sunny day). The whole wall is covered with graffiti and various messages and you can even leave one of your own as well (it's owned by the Knights of Malta, who allowed the graffiti to continue on the wall, so no worries).

Go to „Spa on a Boat" 
This uncommon spa located on Náplavka (tram stop Výtoň) offers a Finish style sauna with amazing view of Hradčany. Its capacity is 15 people and its facilities include an indoor and outdoor relaxation area.
Opening hours (only in winter): Monday – Sunday, from 6 PM till 11 PM - reservation recommended

Relax and watch peacocks
Stop by the Wallenstein Garden that is filled with sculptured hedges, fountains & artificial grotto and your kids will love seeing all the peacocks and wild ducks strolling around. In the summer, there are several free concert series or theatrical performances.
Opening times: April – October, free admission

Visit the fair where fun comes alive
The most famous and the most visited fair in the Czech Republic is held annually in the spring months (February – till April) on the site of the Prague Exhibition Grounds. The tradition of this popular fair dates back to the sixteenth century (1595) when associated with the feast of St. Matthew. If you're in Prague on your spring break, come and taste a cotton candy or have a stab at a roller coaster, ferris wheel or popular bumper cars.

Attend various events
With dozens of events going on every day, there is always something for everyone! Stay connected with us for the great stuff & actual events!
