  • The castle itself looks nice from the outside & has a nice view to the valley. I consider the 5eur entrance too much since inside it's empty. It was really sad to see birds in captivity and even more....  more

  • Do NOT visit the Beckov castle! Paying 5,50 € (as of September 2022) for a person to visit a (re)construction site with almost everything closed for visitor is ridiculous and dangerous at the same time. Shame! But if you are already here, at the crossroads turn right (castle is to the left) and you will get much better views on the castle and the cemetery below for free. See attached ;)
  • Great medieval-styled castle and was made even better by the market & demonstrations, archery, and a blacksmith! I'm a big fan of these types of castles and loved to see this re-creation of the lifestyle of medieval times. Had a chat with the blacksmith, very friendly and great English speaking. Bought one of his horseshoes as well. You can also buy rhubarb wine, watch a puppet show, and buy other gifts and items in the castle grounds. Definitely recommend a visit!
  • Liked the way they are taking care of this place. Some parts are renovated and there are also some new buildings built (exhibition rooms, stage, toilets). The walk up is short - about 10 minutes from the parking. The entrance is 4,50 € and you can pay by card 💳 There are also souvenir shops and refreshments. Recommend :)
  • Parts of the castle are closed to visitors because of restoration work. This boot only limits what you can see but also how you experience the place. The atmosphere was lacking because of it and also the people could be more welcoming. The birds of prey were cool to see but their caretakers acted as if we were air. So, is it worth your money? Maybe. When you're visiting individually, yes. When with a family, especially a larger one, no, then it's too bloody expensive.
