How to Spend 1 Day in Český Krumlov
Hailed as one of central Europe’s prettiest towns, Český Krumlov charms with its fairy-tale castle and an Old Town square filled with Renaissance and Baroque architecture. Here’s how to make the most of one day in the UNESCO-listed town. 

Morning: Take in the Sights
You can skip the stress of advance planning on a day trip to Český Krumlov from Prague. Most tours include round-trip transport, and hotel pickup and drop-off, which saves you the hassle of driving and arranging transfers yourself. Whether you’re daytripping or spending the night, a walking tour provides a great introduction and offers a more intimate glimpse into the town. Tours typically cover Český Krumlov Castle, the Gothic church of St. Vitus, and the Old Town. 

Afternoon: Immerse Yourself in Culture
Devote the afternoon to Český Krumlov’s cultural attractions. If you’re an art lover, head to the  Egon Schiele Art Centrum, a private gallery that houses a small collection of work by the Viennese painter Egon Schiele. Alternatively, the Regional Museum features archaeological artefacts, paintings, and folk art from the Šumava region, while the Marionette Museum—a branch of the National Marionette Theatre in Prague—is housed in the former Church of St. Jošt and displays Czech marionettes, puppets, and stage sets.

Night: Delve Deeper
The crowds that fill Český Krumlov during the day typically disperse come evening, making it a great time to explore the town. A private evening tour, which promises the undivided attention of a guide, offers a different perspective of the castle courtyards and cobbled streets of the Old Town. Alternatively, settle down in a local restaurant for the evening: Le Jardin, at the Hotel Bellevue, is often said to be the best in town, while U Dwau Maryi is favored for its old-style Czech cuisine. After dinner, cap your night with a cocktail at Apoteka.
