(4.6/5 based on 2,200+ 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. You can stroll through the grounds on your own, but access to some of the interior sections is by guided tour only.

  • The highly visible Český Krumlov Castle, for the most part a great eye-catcher is already renovated. From the Castle, you have a beautiful view on Český Krumlov and its surroundings.

  • The magnificent Castle and the surrounding area, a person may not even go inside for a tour. You just have to walk through the courtyards and gardens, there are beautiful views of the river and the streets under lock and key. Of course these are a lot of tourist site, or a quiet romance you can dream:) i like coming back here, it has something to himself.

  • 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.
