Landmark Tourist Spot
Valdštejn Castle is an early Gothic fortress near Turnov, in the Czech Republic. It can be found in the cliff dwelling city of Hruboskalsko, in the Bohemian Paradise .The city was built on three sandstone cliffs in the second half of the thirteenth century by Counts of the Waldstein family. After 1420 the castle was occupied by the Hussites, then later by the robber barons. In 1621 the abandoned castle was bought back by the Waldsteins, whose most illustrious member was Albrecht von Wallenstein. During the peak of the Baroque period, they built a pilgrimage church, dedicated to John of Nepomuk, in 1722 on the ruins of the castle.

  • Entrance fee: 60 CZK (without a guide). Some of the rooms is closed to people that come without a guide, so walking around the Castle takes not more than 20 minutes. The guide is only in Czech language. The castle itself, and its ruins, apart from two buildings located at the entrance and the Chapel, not anything special. The only thing for which it's worth it to explore the views, but similar sites in the area is plenty. Therefore, if someone is not Czech and not interested in input from the Guide, I recommend you see the Castle from the outside and further to go for a walk after the Bohemian Paradise.

  • Not very large, with views of the Bohemian Paradise and interesting surroundings. The opportunity to visit other attractions within easy reach of pleasant walks, Kopicův statek, rotštejn and Chateau hruba Skala.

  • Beautiful even if only a tiny Castle, who is waiting for something big will be disappointed, but I was pleasantly surprised, I was here for about 20 years and everything is fixed, everything becomes available. The castle is in a beautiful location, parking for 35.0-€ approx. 500 metres from the Castle, but for strollers and people with disabilities is not appropriate. Family ticket guided 220.0-Eur 170.0-without a guide. (a). Have a nice trip, we added the Kopicův statek is rock reliefs of approximately 1500 m and the total experience from the trip-super! We recommend that you.
