In Alchemists’ Footsteps – Prague Castle Tour

(Legends and Mysteries of Magic Prague)

Our storytellers will bring to life a unique experience in a form of a walking tour … away from the hustle and bustle of Prague´s Old Town, this evening walk led by an elegant narrator carrying a lantern, takes us on a journey through mystery and magic. Discovering on the way many unknown places of esoteric charm where masters of the dark arts of Alchemy and Astronomy would toil by candlelight late into the night. You will hear scary and mysterious stories of disappearances and the haunting presence of the devil. Our journey takes us through an area reputed to be the location of the “gate to hell” and where the silent streets and sinister corners have been walked by the most mysterious minds of the renaissance Europe.


This tour does not include access to interiors of sites visited and no “jump scare” actors.
We rely on the professional story telling skills of our actors.

Note that Mysterium Tours does NOT craft typical guided tours for tourists, these are immersive storytelling experiences about legends, histories and tales not always associated with the building we stand in front of.

A few tips on how to properly enjoy this tour
Put aside your phone and the modern way of seeing things; let yourself be carried away by the stories that will be dramatically told and follow each step carefully. Open your mind and play with your imagination; this will provide you with a glimpse of the past, a glance into the ancient tales, born from the superstition of the old times gone by.
