Pick up at the appointed time and place (provided at the time of booking). We start the ride from the bike rental garage in Prague 5, Pod Barvířkou 6, at approximately 10:00 am. The tour is mostly on cycle tracks with virtually no traffic. Since the whole route follows rivers, there are almost no hills. There are several typical small Czech pubs on the way to Karlštejn Castle. We usually stop for a beer and other refreshments at one or more of them.

We reach Karlštejn at about 1 pm. The cycling part of the trip ends in a traditional Czech country restaurant unless you are taking advantage of prolonging the tour (see Additional offer below).  You can test Czech cuisine here after the bicycle ride. Your bikes are transported back to Prague.

You have a free afternoon to explore the shops in the village and take an optional tour of the castle.

You receive a railway timetable, map of Prague and ticket for the trip back to Prague. The train from Karlštejn to Prague leaves every 30 minutes.

The Programme of the Self-guided trip can differ from the guided one. There are many tracks to Karlstejn Castle. The client obtains more than one possible choices of routes to the castle and it is up to his or her decision and ability how difficult and how long a tour he/she wishes to choose. The tour can also start at the client’s Prague hotel, if the client took a guided trip with AVE the previous day and has already obtained bicycles and all materials.
