Riegrovy Sady is a popular park in the Vinohrady district in Prague, which was founded in 1902 and named after a famous Czech lawyer and politician F. L. Rieger.
Today Riegrovy Sady is one of the most popular parks in Prague. Here is our quick guide to Riegrovy Sady and how to enjoy the best things this magical park has to offer!
Riegrovy Sady sunset
- Reigrovy Sady is famous for the iconic view of Prague Castle. Many Prague travelers and locals come to Rieger Gardens to enjoy sunset when the weather gets warm.
- How to find the sunset view spot? You can find it easy! In the middle of the park is a runners track surrounded by a fence, walk around it until you reach the western side and there you will see a slope with a beautiful view over Prague New Town and Prague Castle.
- Find yourself a free spot on the slope, open a bottle of a beer, or bring one from the nearby beer garden and enjoy the sunset view!
Riegrovy Sady beer garden
- Although Riegrovy Sady beer garden was closed in 2019 due to ownership issues, it was reopened in summer 2020. Hopefully, it will remain that way!
- The beer garden is usually opened from April till October.
- Don't despair if the beer garden is closed! Just one bush away is a place called Mlikarna, here you can also get a beer either to sit or to go, and it's even closer to the slope with the view! (I wish I've had this tip when I came there the first time 😉).
What else to do nearby?
Probably the best part about Riegrovy Sady is its location. It is situated on the border of the two most hip areas of Prague: Vinohrady and Zizkov. Both of these areas are full of cool cafes, bars, and restaurants. Our favorite two places to go to that are nearby are U Sadu and Beer Geek. Both offer a large selection of beer from microbreweries and have great food! If you are on a budget, U Sadu is more price friendly.
