One of the most famous castles in the Czech Republic, the Karlstejn Castle was built by the Czech king and Roman emperor Charles IV in 1348 to house royal treasures including a collection of holy relics and the coronation jewels of the Roman Empire.

After a 1 km climb (also accessible by taxi or horse-drawn carriage, if preferred) we will begin our tour of the sumptuous interior of the Imperial Palace and the lower floors of the Marian Tower, which contain artefacts from the 14th to 19th centuries. Enjoy a traditional Czech lunch in the charming village below the castle before proceeding to the second part of the tour, the Crystal Factory. This nearby glassworks produces an extensive range of 24% leaded cut crystal in a selection of fine motifs, from the simple to the ornate. The provider of official state gifts, the glassworks is renowned for the high quality of its products. Decorative elements found on the pieces include gilt, hand painting and sandblasting.
