5 Quirky things to do in Prague

During a recent trip to Prague and thinking that an easy Google search of "what to do in Prague" would bring up some cool ideas I was quite disappointed to find every website just list museum after museum. So what do you do in Prague if your here for just 3 days and want something a little different? Well check out my list of the top 5 non-museum things to do!

1. Book an e-bike tour with I love E Bike

Prague is hilly and if you fancy yourself a nice cycle round the city without feeling like a competitor in the Tour de France then you need to book a tour with these guys! The e-bikes feel just like a good old fashioned bicycle but with the added bonus of a throttle that can take over the hard work when your over peddling. This tour was so good I even dedicated an entire post on it here, so check it out for details on where to book and what sights you will see.

2. Go on a beer tour with Beer Prague

Prague, the city of Pilsner! Its well known that they brew some pretty awesome beer here and what better way to learn about it than a guided tour drinking sample after sample of awesome Beer, and by sample I mean pint after pint! There are lost of beer tours around but I would highly recommend Beer Prague, these guys are passionate about there beer and make sure your having the best time.

3. Take my walking tour! (doughnut ice-cream & beer garden)

The city of Prague is stunning and with old cobbled streets to huge open parks it really has some great places to walk. Why not take my 4km walking tour which stops of for beer and doughnuts on the way. Starting at the old town square the tour takes you to a micro brewery then onto the Charles Bridge through some of the old towns streets. Once over the bridge you can grab a doughnut ice-cream and walk along the rive banks to the entrance of the huge park. Hike the steps and see the metronome sculpture which replaced an old statue of Stalin and then finish the walk off in a huge beer garden over looking the city.

If the city is getting a bit much and you want some greenery then why not spend the day on the small islands in the middle of the Vltava river. With some beaches, pedals to rent and beer available from local vendors this place is a great hang out to get away from the city feel. 

5. Eat some awesome food
