(4.2/5 based on 25+ reviews on the web)
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.

  • This Hrad claims to be the most romantic in Cesky Raj. But honestly I was extremely underwhelmed. Not much to admire and learn about on the interior. And the exterior views were poor compared to other...  more »
  • The average Castle, nothing special to see. From the original castle only the foundations and rubble. A search warrant only a later reconstruction, which are equipped with one of the furniture. Interesting original images. From the car park to the Castle enough steep path of about 0.5 km.

  • Great place for family trip. To place leads easy, tidy forest path suitable even for small children. Castle itself is nicely rebuilt, no ruin. Around it, there are many wonderful views on surrounding country, especially in autumn. Really worth seeing. Entry is paid, but quite cheap.
  • Fantastic view of the surrounding countryside. Great place to snap some shots during your trip to Cesky Raj.
  • Well-preserved and very nice castle situated in beautiful nature. View of the surrounding landscape is also wonderful.
  • Zámek sice malý, ale pěkně udržovaný.
  • A beautiful castle in the heart of Hruboskalska, the tour without guide-I can only recommend, beautiful views of the countryside and the resturant serving breakfast
