The Cesky Krumlov Castle is definitely worth a visit. It offers great views over the historic city centre and is itself an interesting attraction. Most of it was closed when we visited (January 2015 in the low season), including the internal gardens, but it still made for a very enjoyable walk around. It is only small but still a great...

Came here on the Cesky Krumlov free walking tour (which I totally recommend). Beautiful medieval fresco paintings on the exterior. Real live bears in the moat outside! Best view in town from the top lookout point!

This is a wonderful castle, sitting on the hill above the town of Cesky Krumlove. The castle has wonderful viewing points over the Vltava River and the old town. The castle is surrounded by a dry moat, which contains a live brown bear, apparently the custom in medieval times at many castles.

The castle's views are simply breathtaking. Visiting the exterior of the castle alone is well worth the visit, and the Tower presents an unforgettable view of Ceský Krumlov. I have to say the one thing I didn't love were the 'castle-like' paintings on the walls, it made it look slightly like a movie location and not the real thing it... More

From my trip around Czech Republic this was the best part. We took a day trip from Prague to Cesky Krumlov, and it was like a journey to a fairy tale. They have the most impressive castle on the rock, which – of course! – is inhabited by ghosts. The town itself is small and neat, and looks like a... More

It is a very big monumental castle so plan your day if you want to go in it or you can just walk around but the tower it a must! You can pay separate ticket just for this and believe me its worth it! Absolutely stunning views all over the town! My kids loved the brown bears there as well,... More
