Very Nice Trip

Very nice trip to Karlstejn Castle! Our tourguide was informative and full of knowledge. The trip by bus or minicoach was nice and took maybe 45 minutes. A rather short walk to the castle, some took of course a horse coach or taxi. The castle itself was full of history. And you have a great view from the castle to the sorrounding places!

Our guide was great! She had a lot of history to share with us. And the manner in which she switched between English and Italian was awesome
