What to expect
  • After pickup at your Prague hotel, travel by air-conditioned Mercedes through the picturesque countryside to Konopiste Castle. Let your guide know if there’s anything you want to see more of: your private tour comes with a flexible itinerary. On route, listen as your guide sheds light on Konopiste’s history. Originally a 13th-century Gothic fortification, the castle was redesigned as a baroque-style chateau before becoming home to Austria’s Archduke Franz Ferdinand in the late 19th century. The heir to the Austro-Hungarian throne, the Archduke was assassinated in 1914, lighting the touchpaper for WWI. After roughly an hour, arrive at Konopiste and enjoy a tour of the interiors. Explore the Archduke’s wood-paneled private chambers and halls, as you hear about his life. See the deer antlers and shooting gallery with its moving targets — he was a keen hunter — and view other highlights including the Obbizi-d’Este armory, an extensive collection of medieval weaponry. Then, stroll around the parkland to admire the rose gardens, sculptures, and glasshouses. After free time for shopping, get your guide’s recommendations on local restaurants where you can enjoy a traditional Czech lunch (own expense). Your tour concludes back at the starting point.
