  • Excellent place to spend the day. A small, very charming town with an amazing castle. You can walk right through the courtyards so going in isn't a total necessity but in order to get into the prominent tower, you do need a ticket. Fantastic either way.

  • Nice castle. However only 2 stars because making photos is not permitted inside the castle and you have to pay a tourist fee (they call it 'foreign language fee') which means twice the price of the Czech people (700 Krone for a family). Unfortunately, our guide was quite hard to understand. Parking prices are comparable with a city like Salzburg (Austria), 1.5 euro for one hour on P2 (35 Czech Krone).

  • Nice place, worth a visit. When you visit the museum and you're a tall... Mind your head, there are no signs and I bumped my head pretty hard over there.

  • Very impressive castle in a beautiful setting. The numerous views of the old town from various vantage points are truly stunning. We went on the English Tour I. Our guide, Oli, was fantastic. She spoke in a loud clear voice, had a disarming sense of humor, and was very knowledgeable about the castle and it's history. She encouraged questions and was able to answer every one. This was one of the best tours I've ever been on.

  • A picturesque UNESCO listed ancient town with great viewpoint from the tower. Such a beautiful place to visit. Nice hikes around the old town and the hills up to the castle. It was sunny in the afternoon we were there.
