Cesky Krumlov Castle, Cesky Krumlov

Dominating the surrounding city from its location on a high rock promontory, Cesky Krumlov Castle is a medieval complex of about 40 buildings, situated around five courtyards and a vast park. Dating back to the middle of the 13th century, the complex covers a total area of about 7 hectares (17 acres). The castle's atmospheric storerooms house a collection of stone statues and sacred art, accrued over the centuries by the city's many rulers. You can stroll through the grounds on your own, but access to some of the interior sections is by guided tour only. Check the website for opening hours and available tour options before you make the trip.

  • Huge, old and beautiful. This castle was the seat of the Rosenberg’s, the most powerful Czech noble family at the time. The baroque theater has been positive along with costumes and stage equipment which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. And impressive arched bridge connects the castle to the adjacent park.
  • This is a beautiful castle. It is huge. You can take beautiful photos of the Cesky Krumlov town from here because the castle is overlooking the town. The town made you feel you are in the medieval age. Sometime you feel the knights are hiding somewhere in the town. It’s a 3 hr ride by train from Prague. It’s a must go place.
  • Beautiful castle with interesting history. I visited this castle based on a photo I came across years ago and the views on approach, inside the walls and from the tower are all splendid or beautiful in their own way. We budgeted half a day on this castle and it was just enough. There is a vast cultured garden with great sculptured fountain, and what I think is a hedge maze. And yes, there is a bear in the moat.
  • I think it's one of the most beautiful castles. The insides are magnificent. You get overwhelmed as soon as you enter the castle and the view from the top is even more astonishing. You see everything that's inside the city and everything that's happening in the city all it's people and house. It's a pleasure to live in this city alongside it's people.
  • It is a wonderful place. Amazing architecture. The landscape is beautiful. Completely recommended.
