This top 10 list lists big concerts, sports, theatre, tours, free activities, and other events to attend in Prague during November.
Take a look at our other popular posts:
1) See a Ballet Performance
There will be two excellent opportunities to see a Ballet in Prague this November.
The first opportunity is the Best of Swan Lake performed at the Hybernia Theatre on November 14th. This is a truncated version of the story, but it does feature the most notable scenes from Swan Lake.
If you're feeling more festive, the first performance of The Nutcracker will be taking place at the Hybernia Theatre on November 29th. There will also be several chances to see this ballet in December.

2) Enjoy a Blacklight Theatre Performance
Blacklight theatre, and telling stories through visuals and body language, has become a staple in Prague’s theatre community.
These performances are great for audiences of all ages and nationalities, as they are nonverbal and therefore without a language barrier.
The WOW Show Blacklight Theatre will be hosting a performance every Sunday in November 2021.
If you just can't get enough of the bright and vivid colors during these shows, consider following up your theatre experience with a round of Black Light Mini Golf!
Even if you can't make it to one of the shows, the Blacklight Mini Golf course will be open and available throughout the month of November.

3) Go to a Christmas Market
It isn’t quite Christmastime, but the Christmas Market at Prague Castle opens on November 27th, 2021, and runs through the first week of January 2022.
And if you’re in town the last weekend of the month, the rest of the city’s Christmas Markets will open for business then, too.
You’ll be able to find the two main spaces in the Castle market.
One holds the food and beverage vendors - we recommend trying the warm mead or hot chocolate to keep fend off the cold temperatures as you browse the other stalls of handmade souvenirs and festive decorations.
If you want to learn all about all of Prague’s Christmas markets, this article will give you a full rundown.
(4) Warm Up with Traditional Czech Food
November means colder weather, more layers, and searching out some warm comfort food. Czech cuisine can definitely deliver on that last point.
Find a local pub for some delicious roasted pork, locally known as vepro knedlo zelo, or cesnecka - garlic soup topped with a raw egg.
If you're in Prague at the end of November, be sure to check out the warm, sweet treats on sale at the Christmas markets.
You may also want to consider taking a food tour to learn all about the most popular dishes in Prague from a professional guide.
5) Go Sightseeing
One of the easiest ways of learning all about the city and its history is by taking a sightseeing tour. That is why the hop-on-hop-off bus tours of Prague are such a popular option.
While it does get chilly at night, the wintry atmosphere of November makes this Ghost and Legends tour of Old Town perfectly spooky!
6) Enjoy a Harry Potter Escape Game
If you're familiar with the idea of an escape game and you're a fan of Harry Potter, this is one opportunity you won't want to miss.
While partaking in this experience, you'll use a magic wand to cast spells, talk to portraits, listen to ghosts, and perform other curious tasks to solve a mystery before time runs out.
This escape game takes around 1 hour to complete, and it's sure to please fans of the wizarding world. It's also a kid-friendly activity that is fun for the whole family.
Purchase tickets for the Harry Potter Escape Game or learn more.

7) Catch a Football or Hockey Game
November is a great month for catching the winter sports. Prague has both hockey and football (soccer) teams that might be playing home games!
It's worth noting that these games might be canceled or closed off to the public in 2021, but we still recommend checking to see if there are any tickets available.
If the links above don't work, we recommend purchasing tickets directly from the team you wish to see.

9) Visit the Astronomical Clock
There's never a bad time to visit this landmark, and it's a pretty good way to figure out exactly what time is!
Dating back to the 1400's, this clock tells time with both Gothic and Roman numerals. You'll also see a calendar showing the months and zodiac signs just below the lower face.
Best of all, you can actually visit this location for free and visit almost anytime, day or night.
That said, you may want to consider entering the Old Town Hall where the clock is located to see the inner workings of the device.
