hidden gems?

I have always found hidden gems (hidden alleys, courtyards, historical remains, interesting buildings, great views, hidden spots...) in most city that I have visited.

I am struggling a little to find something in Cesky Krumlov, although I am sure there must be something. I know that cesky krumlov is very small and touristy - so it is a little harder to find something.

Does anyone have a recommendtion of something that is

- usually overlooked?

- hidden spot?

- off the beaten path?

- hidden alleys or spaces?

I would appreciate your input and ideas - thank you in advance!

The best part of Krumlov is after the day tourists leave.... find a place along the river to eat, have a beer.

sometimes live music...when is your visit? There could be events.

Look at Youtube. Rick Steves in Cesky Krumlov

I would make a reservation for the Gypsy Bar for Saturday night... email or stop by when you arrive.

Another fun thing is at the bottom of the castle..watch the canoers on the river and small water fall... inevitabley someone turns over.

see if any of these museums are of interest

Haha thanks. I have seen the rick stevens a few times already :)

The gypsy bar also seems very touristy - but i imagne it is quite hard to find a restaurant that is not touristy

You are correct... It is very touristy..... if you are that worried or cannot get past that fact, perhaps visit some more authentic place.

CK is my favorite, even with all the tourists.

I enjoyed the Gypsy Bar.. you inquired about gems, it is a gem because it is small, quaint and a mix of people.. but hey, if you think it is touristy, skip it.
