When To Visit Prague

Why spring and fall are the best seasons to visit Prague and what to pack into a suitcase.

Spring

Petřín Gardens in Spring
Spring is usually the best season to visit Prague. Spring offers a more relaxed level of tourism and if you saw flowers inside the beautiful gardens of Prague! They all begin to bloom. Also the Prague Spring International Music Festival is in full swing. The best chance for a nice weather is in a late spring. The weather is often quite pleasant in this season, with temperatures around 20°C (70°F) and mild evenings.
Bring comfortable shoes because you can expect to walk a lot (at least 5-6 hours a day) and one waterproof light jacket so you are ready if it gets windy or it starts to rain.
Please, always check the weather information before you travel to Prague. There are many sites where you can find information about weather in Prague but definitely the most accurate forecast comes from the Czech Hydrometeorological Institute. Their accuracy for one-day forecast is more than 96%.

Summer

Prague is busiest in the summer months and temperatures are about 25-40°C (77-104°F). Unfortunately we cannot recommend to visit Prague in summer because it gets so overcrowded with tourists. For example if you want to step on the Charles Bridge during summer months, you have to wake up really early or come there later than 6pm because there are so many people walking on it that we believe you wouldn’t fully enjoy its atmosphere. You will face the same problem if you visit the Prague Castle during daytime in summer. If you still want to come to Prague in summer, we recommend to get our three days or four days travel guide because in these two travel guides we will guide you through beautiful ways most tourists don’t even know about so most of the time you will be fine.
TIP: the beginning of the summer is the worst time to visit Prague because there are too many tourists. However, if you really want to visit Prague, try to visit it at the end of the summer if possible. It gets much calmer and more relaxed.
Bring comfortable shoes because you can expect to walk a lot (at least 5-6 hours a day), shorts and one pair of trousers (just in case because the weather gets crazy sometimes and the temperature could drop to 20°C (70°F) for a few days).

Fall

Once fall arrives the trees are decked out with gold and scarlet leaves and Prague gets less touristy therefore it is another great season to visit Prague. Temperatures are above freezing and usually get around 9-14°C (48-57°F). You can expect a mixture of sunny and cloudy days, crisp air and possibly rain (so a typical fall weather).
Bring comfortable shoes because you can expect to walk a lot (at least 5-6 hours a day), preferrably a warmer pair of them. Warmer clothes are neccessary and a jacket (ideally water-proof) is recommended.

Winter

Winter in Prague is magical when it snows! You can see it in our photo gallery of Winter Prague. Temperatures are around 0°C (32°F). However, snow rarely comes and if it does, it doesn’t last for long. So if you want to enjoy Prague under snow we recommend to plan a last-minute vacation according to a weather forecast (see text below in this column to find out where to find the most accurate weather forecast for Prague). Even though there’s no snow, atmosphere in Prague is still wonderful. The prettiest places in Prague during Christmas time are the Old Town Square with its typically huge christmas tree and the Prague Castle where a smaller tree is placed.
Bring comfortable, warm and preferrably waterproof shoes, a warm jacket and a scarf. Hat could also be a good idea because it can get windy, especially at the Charles Bridge and along the Vltava river.
