4 Early-Winter Getaways in the Czech Republic

Discover unique cold-weather trips for two

Cooler weather tempts us to curl up under a puffy blanket with some hot chocolate. But winter shouldn’t dampen your adventurous spirit. There are plenty of winter-exclusive articles that will warm up your heart and get you out of the house!

Mushing with a herd of cuddlable huskies

Is there anything more romantic than riding in a husky-pulled sled with someone you love? Feel the wind in your hair and a doggy heart-beat on your chest during after-ride snuggles. Enjoy this combination of relaxation and excitement for a day or even the entire weekend!

Unfortunately, there are no mushing opportunities too close to Prague, but you can make a trip of driving up to Lipová – lázně. Bordering Poland, the quaint town is the epitome of a winter wonderland with glorious views and scenic rolling hills.

Spend the night in a real-life castle

If you’ve lived in Prague for a while, you may be jaded by all the castles scattered at every corner of the country. Sleeping in a castle is a completely different experience! Castle Zbiroh is a romantic 5-star chateau located in the Pilsner region in the Czech Republic.

The castle is surrounded by a park so you can enjoy romantic strolls through the snowy green scenery. There is also a wellness center and an indoor swimming pool, perfect for relaxation and perhaps a massage, or two! The renaissance-era castle is especially beautiful around winter time.

You can find packages with special winter prices here (CZ).

Bathing in beer is healthier than drinking it

A hot relaxing bath does wonders to cure that winter gloom and can potentially prevent a creeping cold. The Czech Republic is famous for its myriad of spas and places to soak away your worries. If you want to shake things up a bit, why not try a romantic couple’s beer spa.

You can experience the beer spa trend in Prague, but why not turn it into a romantic trip to Černá Hora? The Černá Hora Beer Spa began its beer treatments in 2011 before it became a mainstream hit. While you’re in the area you can visit the largest ski resort in the Czech Republic for some skiing or simply to enjoy the snowy mountaintops.
