Both of the interior and exterior of the castle is cool. You will need to pay for the admission fees with guided tour in order to enter the castle. The history of the castle will be explained during the tour. There are 3 different circuit available, Circuit I-III. I choose circuit I as it covers most of the castle. There... More

Krumlov Castle tower is visible from almost everywhere in town with its spires and colourful decoration. We didn't visit any of the interior of the castle, just walked around the castle and gardens. It's very beautiful. The bears in the moat unfortunately did not show themselves. It's a bit of a stiff walk from the town entrance to the garden... More

The whole castle might be bit odd on the first look, but once you get there you can appreciate many different architectonic styles throughout centuries of development – this makes it really unique. Many courtyards and corridors are open at night as well (summer time). The castle tower provides a great view of the whole castle, the city and its... More

A very lovely castle, fun to explore outside and very well presented tour for the inside. The guide knew her history and was very patient.

Take your time strolling outside the castle (be sure to see if you can sneak a peek at the moat bears!) before arranging for your tour of the Cesky Krumlov Castle. Our tour was in English, and our guide was a delight. Since we had a small number in the group, we had the opportunity to ask questions and explore... More

I was thinking about giving it 1 star to avoid it being run over by tourists like Prague, if you make the trip to Czech Republic take a bus or train to Český Krumlov you won't be disappointed.

Looking at it from outside is cool since you can see how big it is. Inside they have lots of info in english which makes it easy to learn about the history and the people who lived there. The views from up top are great. Recommended.

In the Czech Republic there are many castles, but Cesky Krumlov is my favourite one together with Hluboka. There is a lot to see inside the castle, paintings, beautiful salloons, it really has a history! Great atmosphere, interesting history, recommended!

This castle ranks up there with other famous names around Europe and is highly recommended. Best to arrive early to avoid crowds. We were lucky to be on an English language tour of six people! Much more intimate. The overall architecture and grounds, including the gardens, are full of surprises at every turn. Beautiful views of the town from above.... More

While not a huge castle, it is a very nice and quite interesting castle. There were a number of artifacts maintained in the castle that took up much time, not to mention a little theatre with a short, interesting film. Definitely climb the tower, the photos will be well worth it and don't forget to see the garden. Also, make... More
