What should I do in Prague in December?

Prague, the capital city of the Czech Republic, is a popular tourist destination all year round, but in December, the city is particularly special. The winter chill in the air, the frosty mist that often settles over the city, and the twinkling lights of Christmas decorations create a magical atmosphere.

Here are some suggestions for what to do in Prague in December.

Visit the Christmas markets.

One of the highlights of visiting Prague in December is the Christmas markets. There are several markets to choose from, including the Old Town Square, Wenceslas Square, and the markets in the Castle area. Here you can find a variety of handcrafted goods, warm drinks and food, and festive entertainment.

The Christmas markets normally open at the end of November or the start of December and remain open until January 6th (normally).

Explore Prague Castle.

Another must-visit landmark in Prague is Prague Castle, located on a hill overlooking the city. In December, the castle is open for visitors, and you can take a tour of the palace and its surrounding buildings, including St. Vitus Cathedral, the Old Royal Palace, and the St. George’s Basilica. Not only is it amazing to visit the castle, but the walk between the old town and the castle is a beautiful one in which you can walk across the Charles Bridge, the number one landmark of Prague.

Join a guided walking tour.

To fully immerse yourself in the beauty and history of Prague, consider taking a guided walking tour of the city. Several options are available, including historical tours, food tours, and other sorts of tours. These tours offer a unique perspective on the city, and you’ll be able to see and learn about many of Prague’s famous landmarks and hidden gems.

Visit the National Museum.

Another great indoor activity in Prague is visiting the National Museum. This museum features a vast collection of historical, cultural, and scientific exhibits. It is a great place to escape from the cold and learn about the rich history of the Czech Republic. Sometimes we write about temporary exhibitions in the National Museum in our Prague Guide. Look at our Prague calendar to see if there are any special exhibitions on display during your stay in the Czech capital.

Enjoy a classical concert.

Prague has a long-standing classical music tradition, and there are many opportunities to enjoy a concert during your visit. Some popular venues include the Rudolfinum, the Estates Theatre, and the Municipal House. You will normally meet people on the street selling tickets to typical tourist concerts, so it is no problem buying tickets for such programs during your actual stay in Prague.

Try the local cuisine.

Czech cuisine is hearty and comforting, making it perfect for the chilly weather in December. Some popular dishes include goulash, dumplings, and roasts. Be sure also to try the local beers, as the Czech Republic is known for its high-quality brews. Which are the best beers in the Czech Republic?

Some trips are available with food, others without food, some with audio guides, while some are just for relaxing and looking out the window. No matter which option you choose, a river cruise in Prague is recommended all year round.

In conclusion, there is no shortage of things to do and see in Prague in December.

The Christmas market at the Wenceslas Square

It is a nice little walk between these markets, but be warned, it can get crowded on the path between the two markets during the busy hours of the Christmas markets. This market is located at a magnificent square, and once again, you will be able to buy all sorts of products made by local artists and eat and drink local specialties.

Where to live near the Christmas markets in Prague?

Would you like to live in a hotel near the Christmas markets in Prague? Are you looking for cheap accommodation, or would you rather spend more and live in a hotel with breakfast and four or five stars? See the map below for price estimations and an overview of hotels near the Christmas markets at Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square.


It is worth remembering that the Old Town distances aren’t big. As a result, most of the hotels in the map above (unless you scroll in and out) are within a 5-10-minute walking distance from Old Town Square and Wenceslas Square. Do not forget to book a hotel early, as things get really busy in December due to the extremely popular Christmas markets. If you have the possibility, it is normally cheaper to book hotel rooms during weekdays compared to the weekends.

What to eat and drink at the Christmas markets in Prague?

If someone tells you about a market, it is easy to think about a location where you can buy groceries or goods. That is often true, but when we think about Christmas markets, many people don’t associate it with shopping. Why is that?

To many, Christmas markets aren’t about shopping but eating and drinking. Why is it that the largest and the most popular stalls are those serving food and drinks? You know the answer already! It is okay to buy some handmade products in a stall, and then a Christmas present for your kids in another stall. But, after spending 15 minutes looking at the different stalls, something hits you. It doesn’t hurt but comes at you like a quiet predator. It attacks you through the nose and makes you get water in your mouth… it is the smell of Czech sausage, followed by the sweet smell of the Trdelnik (Chimney Cake), and all the other delights of the Prague Christmas markets.

Essential things to eat at the Christmas markets…

Anyone visiting the Christmas markets should eat lunch or dinner at the market, at least once. The Czech sausages are a number one delight worth tasting. It might not be healthy to eat sausages like these every day, but once or twice during your December trip to Prague is a must.

If you’d rather eat some ham, try ražská šunka. This is a large piece of ham that is served together with potatoes. It is a local dish, very popular, and very tasty.

Kids often habitually skip the main course and jump straight to the desert. That is easy to understand as the smell of the Chimney Cake (Trdelnik) attacks your nose. This sweet dough is covered in sugar, later to be grilled (caramelizing the sugar), and then dipped in either cinnamon, cocoa, walnuts, chocolate, or some other ingredient. Sometimes, they even add Nutella and whipped cream to the finalized product. No matter what, this is one of Prague’s most popular products at the Christmas markets, and one you should try!

What to drink at the Christmas markets in Prague?

The cheapest is to bring a bottle of water from the supermarket, but that is boring! If you eat like a local, you should drink like a local. What should you order together with your food? If you don’t mind consuming alcohol, you already know that Czech beer is known worldwide. Pilsner is the most famous brand of them all. Most people buy this as they want a drink to accompany their sausage or some other piece of meat at the Christmas markets.

Would you like to try something more special? Becherovka is a very popular spirit from the Czech Republic. It is based on more than 20 different herbs, but it might be that you will feel the alcohol taste (it has a 38% alcohol percentage) stronger than the taste of the herbs.

A third drink you can buy at the Christmas markets is Tuzemák/Tuzemský. It is a local Czech version of rum from the Caribbean Sea. It is made from potatoes or sugar beets, and later they add all sorts of rum essence to the drink. This drink isn’t popular only to drink, but the locals also use it in Christmas cookies.

It isn’t as big and popular as the two main Christmas markets, but it has a nice atmosphere and is a great place to drink some hot wine.

A place outside the city center known for its beautiful Christmas market (and Easter market) is the so-called Peace Square, better known as Náměstí Míru among locals.

Prague Christmas market recommendations

1) Live in the center of Prague

Prague is a big city, and it is a city with hotels and apartments spread around here and there. You might be tempted as you do your booking to reserve space in a cheap hotel. That might be reasonable, but do not forget that if you book a cheap hotel far outside the city center, you will most likely spend the saved amount on cabs and public transportation traveling between the city center and your hotel. And let us not forget, you will also lose valuable time that could be spent doing Christmas market shopping.

If you want to live in a hotel in the heart of Prague, close to the Christmas markets at the Old Town Square and the Wenceslas square, these are hotels you should consider: Hotel Rott, Hotel Melantrich, or Hilton Old Town hotel.

2) Use the local currency

It might be tempting to pay with Euro as it is a currency easier to understand and grasp than the Czech Koruna. But, if you decide to pay with Euro at the Christmas markets and in stores around Prague, you will soon discover that you pay more than you would have if you had used the local currency. As a result, we recommend everyone to pay with card or with the local currency. You can not pay with VISA/MasterCard at many of the stands at the Christmas markets, so when cash is needed, use CZK instead of Euro. The easiest way to get hold of the local currency is by using an ATM. If you decide to use an exchange office instead, we recommend that you compare 2-3 offices and do the exchange at the one with the best rates.

3) Do not travel with hand luggage only

We live in a time where we save money by not paying for checked in luggage on our flights. That is fantastic and good, but you will suffer if you come to Prague without any checked in luggage. Well, you do not need checked-in luggage as you come to Prague, but you will for sure want to have checked in luggage on your return. At the Christmas markets and in the local stores you will find lots of products that you want to bring home. Maybe you want to bring samples of Czech beers? You cannot bring those with you in a hand-luggage! If you decide to buy clothes, bags or maybe some sausage or other cool products, you need the extra space! Take this into consideration as you plan your trip to the Christmas markets in Prague!

4) Arrive with style

Would you like to arrive in Prague with style? Do you want to check in at your hotel as soon as possible? Let us take care of your airport transfer! We can arrange for a normal cab to pick you up at the airport, or we can arrange with a limousine to pick you up. Both transfer types are great, but if you want real Christmas style and make the transfer an experience, you will never forget, the limo transfer is a big hit.

5) Taste things you haven’t eaten before

Life is only as interesting and exciting as we make it. Do not be boring, but open up your mouth to new tastes as you come to Prague. At the Christmas markets, you will find lots of tasty meat, sausages, and sweets. Why not taste them all? Do not eat all the traditional and safe food, but experience tastes and food that you haven’t seen, smelled or tasted before. We believe you will be surprised as you discover that the stuff you haven’t tasted before is really tasty, and you might want to repeat the success day after day at the Christmas markets in Prague.

6) Book the most important activities right away

Tens of thousands of people come to Prague for the sole reason of enjoying the Christmas markets. These people all spend several hours at the Christmas markets, but they also spend time enjoying programs such as river cruises, guided tours, excursions and fine dining at restaurants all around Prague. With such an invasion of tourists, you will often find restaurants to be packed, and it can be hard to find free tables. As a consequence, we recommend that you book the most important activities, events and tables as early as possible. Would you like to go on a river cruise while in Prague for the Christmas markets?

7) Stay warm

You might be at the most wonderful place on planet, but if you are freezing, you will not have a good time no matter what. When you come to Prague in December you should be prepared for cold temperatures, a cold wind and maybe some snow. If you get a combination of all three at the same time, you are likely to feel very cold, at least if you did not follow this advice: Bring warm clothes with you to Prague! You can not enjoy the Christmas markets in Prague if you are freezing. You should rather bring to much warm clothes. Some ladies will on purpose bring to little, giving them an excuse to do some extra shopping, but if you want to avoid those bonus visits to the fashion stores in Prague, bring clothes with you from home!
