Family fun in Czechia
Planning on taking the children on a trip? We’ve got plenty of tips to help you plan a great family holiday in Czechia.

Central Bohemia: A bike ride and a venture into a labyrinth

If you fancy an amazing biking holiday, we recommend the Elbe Route.  It runs from the source of the Elbe in the Krkonoše Mountains to the North Sea and is one of the most popular EuroVelo routes in Europe.  And you can enjoy lots of beautiful countryside and culture along the way. Head to the border with Germany to visit one of the most beautiful national parks in Czechia - Bohemian Switzerland. It looks like a fairy-tale land, with rock towns riddled with mysterious ravines, gorges and lovely viewpoints enjoyed by generations of hikers before you. Get a closer look at Czech traditions at the open-air museum in Přerov nad Labem! For real outdoor fun, try the Mirakulum in Milovice, a huge amusement park packed with unique attractions.  Your little ones will feel like princesses or princes at Loučeň Château, which invites visitors to enjoy special children’s tours, as well as a unique labyrinth and the chance to stay in period suites.  

Our tip: Ride the Elbe Trail upstream, as you’ll have the wind at your back more often

East Bohemia: The road to hell along the world’s longest bridge

Have you been up the Sky Walk? A lookout tower that takes your breath away, not only with the views it offers, but also with its design. Or would you rather stroll along the longest suspension bridge in the world and ride the longest bobsled track in the whole of Czechia? You can do all this and more in Dolní Morava, a mountain resort with plenty to offer little ones and grown-ups alike all year round. And while you’re in East Bohemia, try the Čertovina fairy-tale hell at Hlinsko. What makes this place so special is that devils themselves put on a show! You can enjoy a ton of fun and fascinating activities in their company.

North Moravia: Where industry and unspoilt nature meet

The north-eastern tip of Czechia is a unique blend of technical heritage sights and natural attractions.   While in Ostrava, don’t miss Dolní Vítkovice, one of the most popular tourist destinations in Czechia.  The former smelter and mine have been converted into a vibrant centre of fun and learning. It holds lots of great events for visitors of all ages throughout the year. Dolní Vítkovice is part of the Technical Trail, a unique walk around technical heritage sites. If you prefer nature and the countryside, visit Ostrava Zoo or head off to the Beskydy or Jeseníky mountains. The beautiful scenery there offers lots of fun for the kids. Amongst other places, we definitely recommend a visit to the Velké Losiny paper mill, the Kopřivná summer Funpark and the summer park at Bílá.    

South Moravia: An underground boat ride, or a bike trip to a château

You can start your visit to this sun-kissed region in Brno, Czechia’s second biggest city. One treat not to be missed is a tour of the Brno Underground, which you could always spice up with a look around Špilberk Castle. If romping around in the water is more your thing, try the nearby Aqualand Moravia! Whether you’re into hurtling down waterslides or prefer chilling out in the hot tub, Aqualand has something for everyone. And once you’ve had enough of the water, hire a bike in Lednice or Valtice and take a ride through the beautifully parkland of the Lednice–Valtice Cultural Landscape, a true UNESCO gem.

Our tip: Visit the Moravian Karst. Take an adventurous cruise along the underground Punkva River and marvel at the exquisitely decorated limestone caves.

South Bohemia: From the source of the Vltava to Krumlov

Spending a few days with the children in South Bohemia is a great idea. Discover Šumava, Czechia’s biggest national park, and take a bike ride on one of the countless trails through the stunningly beautiful countryside.  Popular tourist attractions include the Schwarzenberg Canal and the source of the Vltava, Czechia’s longest river.  There’s also plenty of great things to do around Lipno, the country’s biggest reservoir. You can try your hand at sailing, paddling a kayak, enjoying a swim in a natural lake, or romp around at the nearby Lipno aquapark. The nearby Treetop Trail is also an amazing experience.  You’re sure to love the summer ambience and sights of the pearl of South Bohemia, the historical town of Český Krumlov. Children can have lots of fun while learning some interesting facts about the history of Central Europe in the Monastery complex.

Vysočina: For the heroes of fairy tales and westerns

Do your kids love fairy tales? If so, you can’t miss a visit to Pernštejn Castle, one of the most fairy-tale castles in the whole of Czechia! There are some fascinating paths around it, running alongside streams and through deep forests. You’ll feel as though you’re in a magical fairy tale. It’s also well worth visiting the New Generation Museum in Žďár nad Sázavou, where the whole family can learn lots of interesting things about the Baroque period. There are virtual guides to give you an entertaining tour around the museum. If your kids are fascinated by the Wild West, they’ll love a trip to Šiklův Mill. This original western-style attraction has saloons, a sheriff’s office with a prison, and even an Indian village. And if that’s not enough, they put on theatre shows every day! For a truly original place to spend the night, try the Podlesíčko fairy-tale village. What do you think, will you fit in with Snow White and her seven dwarfs? Give it a try, your kids will love it.

West Bohemia: A swim on the roof and a tsunami at Techmania

Your little ones are sure to love a visit to the Techmania Science Centre in Pilsen! It shows them how electricity works, what the Archimedes' screw is, how a tsunami forms, and lots of other fascinating things, all in a really fun way. At the Plasy Building Heritage Centre, right next to the monumental monastery, your kids can become builders and architects for the day and discover the secrets of the art of construction. While in Karlovy Vary, you really shouldn’t miss a walk along the colonnade, a visit to the Moser glassworks, or of course the chance to swim on the roof of the Thermal Hotel. Another great place for a dip is in the spa aquapark in Františkovy Lázně. And if you’re in the mood for some adventure in the countryside, try a canoe ride down the Ohře River.


North Bohemia: The biggest indoor entertainment centre in Czechia

If you're in North Bohemia, then Liberec is an absolute must. Visit the beautiful Zoo or the acclaimed Centrum Babylon, the biggest indoor entertainment centre in Czechia. Not only has it got an amazing aquapark, but there’s also the iQpark and iQlandia with hundreds of fun interactive exhibits. Your boys and girls will come away a lot smarter.
