(4.6/5 based on 2,400+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • In the moat of the Castle lives the brown bear, appears if the bridge is quiet and no tourists inside the castle there is a café, you can buy souvenirs and tickets for the castle itself + Tower or Castle and Tower, the tower is worth 50 kroner. Ladder gradually becomes narrow and very steep from the observation deck you can see the whole city from all sides, very nice. Recommend to visit, just inside the dog cannot be.

  • Such a wonderful Place ... must stay there and feel the ambience .....thats my recoomedation ... watching this castle everytime you get love more and more ....
  • This is the place that you should definitely go to snap the all time favourite photo that oversees the whole old town of cesky krumlov!
  • Beautiful castle with great view of the city. Access to the different castle areas is restricted and priced. There is a museum, and a few tours of the different castle areas. Recommend the castle tour is very interesting and informative.
  • Unbelievable scenery outside and inside of this Baroque castle, and the atmosphere is always festive. Don't forget to bring your camera and wear good walking shoes.
