High season:

Midsummer is considered high season in Prague, with the disadvantage of crowds of visitors basking in the sunny weather. Try to avoid travel during the Christmas, New Year's and Easter holidays, when the city fills with tour groups from Germany and Italy. Expect high hotel and restaurant prices.

Off season:

Winter, from January to February and from November to mid-December. It is generally cold with occassional snow but there are much less crowds and winter is the driest season.
