Attend a Beer Festival

The Žižkov beer festival (Žižkovské Pivobraní) happens each June in Park Parukářka. A variety of beer styles will be available to try. Pilsner was invented in the Czech Republic, so drinking at least one is a must. There’s various food stands with foods like fries, ice cream and burgers. Other entertainment including live music and stand-up comedy are also common. The picturesque views make this an amazing beer festival to unwind at.

Take a Serene Hike

June is a great time to go for a hike before the temperature gets too hot, and luckily Prague has several options. Located on the outskirts of Prague, Vinořsky Park is a good place to start a hike. Walk through the luscious nature reserve with rock formation before heading up to the Jenštejn Castle. Another fun hiking spot is Prokopské Valley. Here you can hike through the valley, with stunning lime and sandstone formations all around.

If you are looking to make a day out of hiking, going to Bohemian Switzerland is a must. The national park takes about two hours to reach by a train and bus, but the beauty is unmatched. Escaping the city’s tourists for a day can help you relax and reset for the work week ahead.

Go Strawberry Picking

Strawberry season starts in late May or early June in Prague. Picking strawberries is a common summertime activity as many farms allow people to pick their own. Self-picked berries taste better and are cheaper than store-bought varieties because they don’t go through a long transport process. Strawberry farms are usually located on the outer southern districts of Prague. Popular farms include Kunratická Jahodárna and Schwenk Jahody. Once you’ve spent a lovely afternoon gathering the fruit, you can eat it, bake with it, or freeze it for later!

Dance to Music at Metronome

Metronome Festival is a four-day music and art festival held in June at the Holešovice fairgrounds since 2016. Czech artists and band from around the world perform on several stages. Past performers have included Kraftwerk, Milky Chance, Oh Wonder and Liam Gallagher. Besides the main music events, unique art installations centered around a theme or non-profit are displayed. Tickets can be purchased months in advance for whatever day and price point you are interested in. Each year the festival becomes larger and more popular, so don’t miss out while you have the chance to go!

Other Things to Do in Prague in June

Here are some other fun summertime activities:

  • Taking a picnic to a local park is the perfect June activity. There’s an abundance of parks in Prague, but popular ones include Petrin Park and Riegrovy Sady. The beautiful scenery at any of these parks provides the best backdrop for a picnic. You can pack your own food or grab takeout to try one some of the amazing cuisine available in Prague.
  • Rent pedal boats and kayaks along the river to unwind. The Vltava River provides amazing views of the city, especially Prague Castle. Spend as much time as you want relaxing on the river alone or with a friend to stay cool.
  • Live like a local by going to a beer garden after work. Well-known spots include the beer gardens at Letná Park and Na Hradbuch. Both of these offer Czech beer along with some grilled snacks. However, you are sure to find other gardens while walking around, so don’t shy away from lesser-known spots.
  • A visit to the Prague Castle is necessary on any trip to Prague. Explore the largest coherent castle complex in the world to learn about some of the history of the area. The gardens at the Royal Palace are also at their most beautiful in the summer.
  • While there is plenty to do in Prague during summer, going somewhere new is also special. Take a day or weekend trip to Český Krumlov, Karlovy Vary or Kutná Hora to experience more of the Czech Republic. Each town is unique, but they all have magnificent architecture to appreciate in the summer.
