17 Things to Do in Prague at Night

1. Beer Bath & Massage

If you’re not aware, Prague has a massive beer culture. In fact, the Czech Republic is the top beer-consuming nation (per capita) in the world!

So it’s no surprise that you can find an actual beer bath in Prague.

Located in the Majestic Plaza Hotel, Beer Spa Bernard is a great place to relax and try something unique. Like soak in a tub filled with beer while sipping (or slugging) unlimited Bernard Beer!

Beer baths are a medical tradition dating back to the Middle Ages and are said to have many health benefits, including improved circulation, skin moisturizing, and detoxification.

As it’s a private soak (for you plus one) you can either wear your swimsuit…. or not! Whatever floats your boat! There’s also the option to add a massage on afterwards. Even if you’re not a beer drinker, this is a fun experience to try while in Prague.

This is a super popular unique experience in Prague, so you’ll need to book your spot in advance.
