What to do in Prague in winter?
One of the best things about winter and one of the favorite things to do in the winter, for both tourists and locals is to attend one of the delightfully fun Christmas markets. These can start as early as mid November and last until just past Christmas. The Christmas markets have a long and interesting past and they are full of many traditional decorations and Christmas tree ornaments, as well as more typical gifts. And of course lots of spiced, hot wine and some juicy sausages on bread. If you are visiting Prague in November or December, do not miss out on your chance to experience the Christmas markets, which are found in nearly every plaza and square throughout the city, large or small.
There are also a lot of other indoor activities once you are unable to bear the cold anymore and if you have missed the Christmas season. Prague is full of many wonderful museums, from the typical history and art museums, to some of the smaller and lesser known ones such as the Karel Zeman Museum or the Lego Museum.
And if you’re up for an adventurous day but want to stay inside, check out one of these escape rooms, which are very popular among our staff.
Important Note: Prague is located in the Schengen Zone, which is a free-travel zone within the European Union. It includes 26 countries in total. Depending on where you are coming from, you might need to secure a visa for the Schengen Zone before visiting the Czech Republic. Please be sure to consider this fact before making plans to visit Prague so that you do not experience any problems upon arrival. Also be be aware that the Czech Republic uses the Czech Korona (czk) rather than the euro since we are not in the eurozone. We look forward to your visit!
