Spilberk Castle - Review

Castle, fortress, prison – this building has played many roles for Brno for much of Brno’s history. Built in Baroque style, it was completed by King Ottokar of Bohemia. The townspeople took it over in 1560, and fortified it to great effect – it was a major defence against the Swedes in the 30 Years War. It’s use as a prison also gained prominence – becoming the holding and executing point for many idealists, revolutionaries, political and controversial figures over the years. The Germans even transformed the place based on 3rd Reich ideals into a barracks. For all these reasons, once upon a time, this was one of the most notorious and feared places in all of Europe.

Less than a year after the Castle ceased operations as a place of military power in 1959, it began to serve as the seat of the Brno City Museum instead – a role it plays to this day. The Grounds around the place are a popular place for a walk among the locals and it’s not unusual to see young couples or dog walkers about. It also hosts a number of major cultural functions through out the year.

Spilberk Castle, Brno Reviews

  • This place is amazing. I was not inside but walked outside castle. View of the city and pathways are excellent. Very sunny and fresh air. Great place for jogging and romantic meetings. Enjoyed it a lot. Location is top notch! There is a terrace on top of hill and its so fun to sit there and enjoy sun. Would really come here again.

  • There are some long term exhibitions and some are only short term. Definitely worth seeing some of them. The park around castle is nice for a short walk in shadow of trees after lunch for example.

  • Fun place to visit. A few heads ups: 1) it's gonna take a few minutes walk uphill to get there. The road is within the park itself and it's very nice indeed. 2) there's a small Bistro up the hill and right next to the castle entry. I highly recommend you to have a quick stop for a drink or a local soup before you enter the castle. 3) depending on which option you choose, the tour could take up to 2.5 hours. Be prepared for long walks from room to room. 4) pick and choose the options wisely. We chose the full package but I have to say, for someone like me who isn't attracted to paintings from 35 years ago, it became boring once I entered the gallery.

  • Off course you can’t skip this. Brno is small and here you can get a good view from the city and learn some new things. The walking in the garden until the castle is big and pretty

  • Nice landmark of Brno city with tower view. I took a look at long dark tunnel system called Kasematy which served in the beginning for soldiers but was converted into the prison in the end of 18th century.
