Highlights and Sights in Prague

Since the Middle Ages, Prague has enjoyed the reputation of being one of the most beautiful cities in the world. Over the centuries, people from many different cultural areas have met here. This mutual enrichment is one reason for the open, cosmopolitan flair that characterises the city today.

Regarding urban development, the city impresses with its historic, unique constructions and angled alleyways. The city's image is characterised by Gothic and baroque architecture. Roughly 500 towers rise into the heavens from the valley by the Vltava. Surrounded by soft hills, the "Golden City” is a picturesque, total work of art without equal.

Do not miss out on the city's highlights during your brief holiday! At Falkensteiner Hotel Maria Prag, you are in the middle of history: begin your sightseeing programme right at the front door! 

Stroll over the Charles Bridge to "Little Venice” and up to Hradschin, the historical castle. There you will stroll through the "Golden Lane” and visit the impressive St. Vitus Cathedral. Back in the old city, you should also plan a visit to the Jewish cemetery and the old synagogues. Discover a piece of the unique UNESCO World Heritage Site in Prague's historic centre!


Always take some time occasionally to marvel. Treat yourself to a cultivated "pilsner” or a "Staropramen”in one of the numerous pubs.

Or do as author Franz Kafka once did and take a seat in one of the famous coffee houses, such as the "Slavia".
