Christmas markets are not just about shopping. Visitors can observe traditional foods being made, and sample all manner of local produce. Large hams are roasted on spits, wonderfully tasty barbequed sausages (klobása), and cakes and pastries prepared in front of you, such as ‘Trdelník’, a hot sugar coated pastry.

To accompany the food, try one of the famous Czech beers – Pilsner Urquell, Staropramen and Budvar – or choose from a variety of hot drinks. Outdoor Christmas shopping is so much nicer with a cup of hot mulled wine (svařené víno or svařák) in your hand!

Very special beers deserve a very special venue! Bohemian Craft Beer Tasting takes place in a Palace!

The House of Lords of Kunstat and Podebrady is one of the oldest buildings in Prague. Of Romanesque origins,and dating from around 1180, our venue, the palace U kunstatu, is located on a hidden cul-de-sac in the oldest part of the Old Town.

Exploring Christmas Markets around the old town and Hradcany.

The markets consist of brightly decorated wooden huts selling traditional handicrafts: glassware, jewellery, embroidered lace, wooden toys, metalware, ceramics, scented candles, Christmas tree ornaments, hats, gloves and scarves, and puppets and dolls beautifully dressed in traditional costumes.

The Christmas markets at the Old Town Square also have an animals stable, where children can stroke sheep, goats and a donkey. And there is a large Bethlehem scene depicting Mary, Joseph, baby Jesus and the Three Kings in a wooden stable.

But what is Christmas without carols? School choirs often perform late afternoon on a stage at the Old Town Square. The children travel from all over the Czech Republic to sing, dressed in traditional costumes. The trip to Prague is a highlight of their school year.
