  • Loved walking down from the palace gardens through the many courtyards of the castle itself. We followed the "secret route" used by the mobility to go from the gardens all the way down into the town. When in the open, the views down to Cesky Krumlov down below were stunning. Many photo opportunities.

  • It is a spontaneous place to visit. The view was fascinating. I enjoyed the time walking there. Even though the weather wasn’t that good, I still loved it.

  • Beautiful grounds, but I've been to a few castles in Europe now and it just wasn't have the Majestic look to it. They've had to re-do you a lot of the original work, so that was a little disappointing also, but still beautiful. I will definitely recommend to come to this beautiful town. It was a little magical place.

  • Simply stupendous. The views, the castle, the rooms, the history, the art...all of it!! Admission fee for a guided tour is 320 kč per person. You can go for that, walk about in the garden, get lost in the maze (not much of a maze lol), take in the views of the village from one of the viewing towers, be wowed by a real life bear, help a stranger take a perfect pic...lots to do. Enjoy!

  • Special and free visit to this castle with guided tours. Magnificent views of the art exhibition, palace and castle views are pleasing to the eyes and the heart. Fantastic interiors inside the castle. Nice scenery from all the places around this spot. Wonderful construction of this castle. Beautiful place.
