Prague's Best Beer Gardens

Guidilo - beer gardens in Prague
As soon as the sun comes out, Prague's beer gardens open and invite you to a refreshing recreation. The best choice for having authentic "beer experience" are the traditional beer gardens. To present you the best ones, here is our list with 6 recommendations.

Letná Beer Garden
Letenské sady, Prague 7 - Holešovice
One of the most popular beer gardens with plenty of picnic tables, a playground for children and a fabulous view of the city. The easiest way to get there is by tram to Letenské náměstí stop and walk along the National Technical Museum to the entrance of the park. After swilling a few beers, explore the park's pathways and the views of Prague's historic bridges.

Riegrovy Sady
Riegrovy sady 28, Prague 2 - Vinohrady
A giant beer garden (capacity 1400 seats) features a huge projection television, so it's a good spot if you want to watch sport, but it's equally good for a chat with friends. There is no table service, but the snack bar where you order your beer also serves small tidbits to eat. WiFi free of charge, if you want to connect with us and express your thanks for this great spot.

V Pevnosti 16/2, Prague 2 - Vyšehrad
Another venue high above town is located on Vyšehrad hill. Situated in one corner of the ramparts is a beer garden called 'Na Hradbach' (literally, 'On the Ramparts'), with a view across the fortifications and down over the Nusle district. Great beer and good grilled food await! This place is definitely the most "local" of the beer gardens, with lots of young people who don't mind sitting on the logs that serve as benches or straight in the grass.

Parukářka / Vrch sv. Kříže, Prague 3 - Žižkov
An off-the-beaten-path location well worth the trip, Parukářka sits atop a hill in Prague's Žižkov district and offers nearly 360-degree views of the city. Seating is limited, but you can take your beer anywhere in the park to enjoy it and the view.

Žluté Lázně
Podolské nábřeží 3/1184, Prague 4 - Podolí
A bustling river-front park, perfect for sunny days to hang out. With grass and sand areas you can just lie down, enjoy the sun, and the main river of Prague. If you're feeling particularly ambitious you can rent a variety of sports equipment from paddle boards to long boards or even play beach volleyball or table tennis.

Náplavka (Riverbank)
Rašínovo nábřeží, Prague 2
Neither park nor garden, it's a good spot to unwind with friends after a busy day. You can easily spend an afternoon here and stay for the evening open air concert or dance party. Bring a bottle of wine, dangle your feet over the Vltava river and watch swans passing by...
