Almanac X Alcron Prague Launches a Kafka Package

May 13th, 2024

Timed to The 100th Anniversary of the Author’s Death

This June marks 100 years since the death of Franz Kafka. To celebrate the life and work of the literary heavyweight—one of Prague’s most celebrated sons—the Almanac X Alcron Prague has launched a speciality package primed for bookish travelers.

Available from June 1 until August 31, 2024, the “Step Into the World of Kafka” package includes a two-night stay, a welcome drink and thematic ceramic mug, a city-wide Kafka scavenger hunt using a map and social media to explore the writer’s life through Prague, and two tickets to the KAFKAesuqe exhibition at the DOX Centre for Contemporary Art, which will bring together works by international acclaimed artists as well as literary readings, film projections, concerts, and more. Guests will also enjoy a signature Metamorphosis cocktail made using Frederic Kafka gin, lemon juice and sugar syrup at the property’s iconic Alcron Bar, which pours specialty liquors crafted by the Frederic Kafka Distillery, founded by the novelist’s great uncle in 1870. Rates start at $636 USD for the two-night package.

Located steps away from Kafka’s birthplace in Old Town, Almanac X Alcron Prague is an ideal base for exploring the Czech city during the centenary celebrations, which will include events, exhibitions, and a renovation of David Černý’s famous Kafka rotating head sculpture outside City Hall. Housed in the former Alcron Hotel – Prague’s first luxury hotel dating to the First Republic - the Almanac X Alcron Prague is steeped in the glamor of yesteryear, with stunning original details like marble pillars, wood paneling, and onyx fireplace. Guests can admire the property’s collection of local art (with the opportunity to visit their studios throughout the city), enjoy creative plant-forward spins on classic Czech cuisine at the Alcron restaurant, and experience the city’s legendary café culture at the property’s third-wave coffee shop.
