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.

  • 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.
