5 Original Activities You Can Do In Prague During Autumn

Temperatures fall, the leaves change their colors and life in Prague gets a little slower. If you are wondering how to spend Autumn in a true Czech manner or have no idea what there is to do in the city when the leaves start falling, you’ve come to the right place.

1. Go on Autumn Foliage Walks

The leaves changing, the wind making them rustle on the floor… Autumn in Prague makes for the perfect hiking location. Especially beautiful is the Sazava Pacific, about 40 minutes away from Prague.

If you’re up to go out a littler further, you might want to go and explore Hrubá Skála and Valečov Castle ruins in the Northeast of Prague. This daylong hike across field, through forests and up to the ‘Skaly’ (rock formations) are just breathtaking – even more so with Autumn Foliage. Just as pretty – though more demanding – is a hike up to Czech Republic’s volcanoes: Milešovka and Lovoš.

Want to stay in the city and yet not miss out on the Autumn Foliage walks? Prague has lots of parks and forests to walk in and marvel at nature’s Autumn beauty! For example in Divoká Šárka, Obora Hvězda, Motol & Prokopske Udoli.

2. Taste St. Martin´s wine and goose

The Czech Republic is not only famous for beer making but also for local wine production. After September season of „burčák“, comes the November season of young wines. The first wine of the year is called St. Martin´s Wine bottles are only allowed to be opened since November 11, at 11:11 AM. This is an old and very popular Czech seasonal event with tradition dating back to the 18th century.

Besides wine drinking, many Czech families gather on this day (November 11) and enjoy together traditional baked St. Martin’s Goose, which is a typical and delicious Czech dish. St. Martin’s goose and wine will be on menu in many Prague restaurants druing this season, so don´t forget to make a reservation.

3. Rent Polaroid to capture Prague autumn atmosphere

Who is nowadays printing digital photos from vacations…? Nobody! We only keep them in our computers, right? You can change this in Prague. Capture Prague fall melancholy on a good old Polaroid camera and take your beautiful retro pictures back home. You don’t have to buy a new camera for this, you can rent everything upon your arrival in Prague in Polaroidlove. You will only pay for the film, the Polaroid camera is for free. Just drop them a line pujcovna@polagraph.cz

4. Get a cup of mulled wine called “svařák”

Sipping the first „svařák“ while roaming around Prague indicates that the cold season is back in town. For locals, this is a must-do every year when temperatures drop down and summer is just a memory. Czech mulled wine we call „svařák“. It can be purchased at every square, restaurant or coffee place. If you want to enjoy an authentic atmosphere and relax over your drink,  visit cozy family-run café Kavárna Nový Svět located in a tiny picturesque quarter close to Prague Castle. Tourists usually never come here.

5. Stroll around Petřín hill and visit a hidden orchard

What would be a fall without all the colours around you! It is not necessary to travel out of Prague to see nature playing with colors. Believe me, Prague is not only about sights, architecture, beer and art. Prague has many beautiful parks and gardens creating fantastic fall scenery every year. Feast your eyes and take a walk to Petřín hill/park.

A romantic place offering relaxing and easy walking paths with beautiful views over the city. Our favourite secret part of the Petřín park is right behind the Church of Our Lady Victorious. Don’t be afraid and walk up the stairs behind the church (next to the school). Your private part of Prague, little cascade orchard. The views are amazing.
