Best time to visit the Vysehrad

Weekday vs Weekend

  • Weekdays: Arrive early in the morning for a quieter atmosphere. On weekdays, there are fewer visitors and almost no crowds until 11am. You can explore the castle interiors freely.
  • Weekend: The castle remains busy almost at all hours, especially during weekends. Most visitors line up around 10am to 11am, so the crowds start to move out only during the late afternoon. During the summer season, go for an evening stroll around the castle after 5pm. The crowds thin out and you can admire the castle interiors and Vysehrad Park to the fullest.
