  • Very nice medieval castle, which is still being deserialized to contemporary reality. For the past 30 years the Castle visit is getting prettier and prettier. I participated in with the Brontosaurus movement in the 80 's voluntary actions to repair the Castle. Throughout the year it is held at the castle today, renowned cultural programs such as. The second Castle, the meeting of vetránů, a night in the Helfštýně etc.

  • Wonderful castle with nice views. In autumn, thanks to its surrounding woods, it's full of colours. Smiths from around the world have here their symposium once a year.
  • One of the better castles in the world. With payment parking, but with a nice landscape
  • amazing blacksmiths' sculptures..
  • Nice place, and Very nice castle.
  • Helfštýn and Hefaiston-now inseparable for the phrase. Helfstyn Castle is already here for centuries, meeting of Smiths Hefaiston several decades. Those crowds of spectators here to mnohatisícové every year, heading for the manly rugged, yet at the same time fine art treatment of metal. And because the best forging works here at the Castle, also remain at the Castle, you can come see them at any time throughout the season.
