Loket Castle, Loket

Founded in the 13th century, Loket Castle seems like an illustration ripped out of a book of fairy tales. Just a short drive from Karlovy Vary, the castle is surrounded by the Ohre River. Thick walls gave the structure its nickname, the "Impregnable Castle of Bohemia." The fortress serves as a museum and national monument--every year, the town's opera festival uses the castle as its pretty backdrop.

  • The Castle Loket represents a completely preserved plant on the one hand, on the other hand are here exhibitions already others have hinted at. Is also a porcelain exhibition. The entrance of 110 crowns and 20 Crowns for photo permission pays off.

  • The castle is worth a visit when you’re in Loket, but it’s not amazing or beautiful. The text at the exhibitions talks about alleged mystical properties of the items on display a bit too much, and the...  more »
  • Castle Loket-Castle as such (exterior) is nice, but feel free to here you can browse yourself without a guide. This means that the Interior, very valuable is not. And strange is, therefore, the exposure in the basement. There is a sort of torture chamber, where the kvílejí martyrs and it is a bit over the line. There is no warning that this is not appropriate for small children. Children were crying ..............

  • Amazing experience. The castle has many different rooms to look at, and you really get the idea of the time from what you see. The torture and the jail rooms were terrifying and made me feel sick to my stomach. I would not recommend to go in with young kids or sensitive people. All the other parts of this castle are pleasant and wonderful.
  • Great castle. It was nice and roomy, unlike the usual cramped fortresses. It also has an interesting series of torture chambers. Great view from the tower.
  • The external of this castle ,standing at the top of a hill surrounded by river Ohre ,is imposing. In the interior there are some (not many) interesting things to see , like the very nice view from the top and an interesting, creepy torture museum in its dungeons. It also has a small weapon and other old objects collection.
  • Well preserved medieval castle, with convenient opening hours through the year! All rooms are open for visitors.
  • The most wonderfull castle in the meandr od river Ohře. You must see it!
