I’ll greet you at the meeting point on Wenceslas Square and from there it will go as follows:

  • This tour is presented in Native English and is limited to six places.
  • This is a leisurely tour, very easy pace with time to enjoy your meal so I aim for 2.5 hours in total.
  • We start in the daylight and go off the beaten path into one of the passages on the square to see some modern art.
  • When we come back onto Wenceslas Square it’ll be getting darker and I’ll show you what to expect from the markets including souvenirs, food and drink.
  • We’ll stay off the beaten path to get over to our next Christmas Market but not before you’ve had a chance to see one of Prague’s hidden artistic masterpieces.
  • At Republic Square we’ll stop for food and drink from the street stalls. This is included in the price.
  • Then we’ll explore parts of the Jewish Quarter before making our way onto the Old Town Square to see the Christmas Tree in all it’s glory.
  • Throughout the tour you’ll be learning about some of our local Christmas traditions.
  • This tour can also be booked privately, contact me with your requirement.

The choice of food and drink is from any stall at Republic Square. Old Prague Ham (200g), Hot Dog, Bramborák, Langoše, Halušky (200g), potato twirls, corn-on-the-cob, toasted almonds etc. The drink choice will include hot or cold beverage, alcoholic or non-alcoholic, beer (0.5L), mulled wine (0.2L), cider (0.2L) or medovina (0.2L).

A Prague Christmas Market Journey

Wenceslas Square

Iconic square and scene of many protests in it's time. Lined with shops, restaurants, cafes and bars.

Republic Square

Only a 5 minute walk from the Old Town Square but a world away. Less crowded and a great place to be introduced to Street Food.

Jewish Quarter

Some of the most historic and beautiful buildings in the city all bathed in Christmas lights.

Old Town Square

Centre of the city and by far the most popular Christmas Market. The square will also have the Christmas Tree and performance stage.

You'll see the meeting point on the picture. It's at the corner of the Desirred department store in the middle of Wenceslas Square (actual address is Václavské nám. 831/21). From the bottom of Wenceslas Square (low end) head up the the square on the left side. Halfway up the square you will cross a road which has a tram line running through it. As you cross the road the building on the corner is Desirred and I'll be waiting in the corner next to the "CHANGE" booth.

Yes, after booking you’ll receive an email from livingprague which will contain confirmation of the booked tour plus specific meeting point details including address, map, photos and directions. You’ll have my email address and phone number as well.

What happens if I am late?

We prefer to begin a scheduled tour promptly at the start time to fit everything in but there is a 10 minute window where you can still join the tour although you will need to phone the guide (the number is in the confirmation email). After this 10 minute window we cannot guarantee joining the tour as the guide will be presenting.

We had a great time on the Christmas Market and Old Town walking tour with Jason. He knows a tremendous amount about the city itself and all of the various traditions and customs. Out of the way spots that we never would have seen otherwise, fascinating stories and anecdotes. Book a tour with Jason.
