  • Because we promised good photos, wanted my husband to the Castle. I had to stay down, because I had severe pain. The cashier was very angry (on the 9.10.2016), spoke not a word in german, but when I put one foot in the system, she screamed equal to "Entrance". It is clear that I was not allowed to the bathroom. That was our only unfriendly encounter in 14 days of Czech Republic.

  • You will need 3/4-hour minimum to visit everything, but with the audio guide you might find very interesting things about this ancient castle
