Prague is one of the most walkable cities in Europe, so it makes sense that a fantastic way to see its attractions is on a guided walking tour.

There are 5 types of free walking tours in Prague which we cover below. We explain your options, provide schedules, and go over what you will see on each tour.


A visit to Prague in the Czech Republic is a memorable experience which is why it's so popular with tourists.

The fascinating history and the marvelous Gothic and High Baroque architecture are very special, so much so that the historic center of the city is a UNESCO World Heritage site.

Walking tours are the best way to discover all that Prague has to offer. In fact, many historic areas in the city are accessible only to pedestrians.

Fortunately, there are plenty of free walking tours in Prague, though they operate as name-your-own-price tours.

With these Prague tours, you decide at the end of the tour how much the tour was worth or what you could afford, including for free.

Charles Bridge and Prague Castle

There are 5 types of free walking tours in Prague that run regularly. Typically they are between 2 hours to 3 hours long.

If you enjoyed your tour, it is recommended to give your tour guide between 200-400 Czech Crowns (CZK), which is between 8-15, or whatever you can afford.

These tours are all highly rated (most receive 5 stars on TripAdvisor) and offer tours in English, and a few in other languages such as German and Spanish.

This company offers a 3-hour free walking tour of Prague's Old Town and the Jewish Quarter every day at 10:00, 15:00 (3 pm), and 18:00 (6 pm).

What sets this tour apart from the others in town is that instead of ending at the foot of Charles Bridge, you will walk across it, over the Vltava River, and end at the John Lennon Wall.

They keep groups relatively small (maximum 25 guests), which they say allows them to visit the interiors of some churches and other buildings. Note that they only offer tours in English.
