The views are spectacular and the castle is very impressive. It's difficult to believe it was constructed so long ago.

The recommendations were high for this castle and rightly so. Our English speaking guide, only on her second day, was well informed and spoke very clear English. The highlight for us was the theatre room with its walls painted with a multitude of different characters. Fabulous. We took Tour 1. Other tours took you to different areas of the castle.... More

Loved the castle in Krumlov. Visited the torture chamber, very interesting. It feels like you are back in the middel ages.

The castle is situated on the hill of the UNESCO world heritage site medieval town of Cesky Krumlov. I didn't go inside the castle so I cannot comment about it. But the pink colour and paining of the castle makes it look distinctive from other castle I've seen. The best part of it is its super awesome view which is... More

While distinct and separate from the center of Cesky Krumlov, a visit to the castle is compulsory while visiting this wonderful town. European history buffs will love being in the hereditary home of the Rosenberg (Rozmberk) family who started building the castle in the 13th century. Even if you have just a casual interest in history and castles, there is... More

Take the guided tour. They take you into parts of the castle that locked away from the casual visitor. It is a wonderful exposure to clothing, furniture, portraits and living style of the past denizens of the castle. Really beautiful. At the entrance is a bear pit (looks like it used to be the moat for the castle) with two... More

We spent hours here...it is really big with lots to see. The second biggest castle in Czech Republic I believe it began in the 13 century with modifications, add ons, and tear downs, and modifications every couple of hundred years. It is really best divided into 4 parts: The main castle, the catacombs/caves, the castle tower, and the castle gardens.... More

Awesome to the max. Must see place for anybody who's visiting Czech republic. Beautiful, elegant and majestic. There's also bear habitat nearby that local tourists can see. Tour guide is preferrable

Experiencing the castle is an absolutely memorable highlight of Český Krumlov. You'll get amazing views of Český Krumlov and the surrounding areas from the tower, and the museum at the base of the tower is very worthwhile as well. Going on one of the guided tours is quite worthwhile and informative, and walking through the various courtyards is quite lovely.... More

The best thing about this castle was the baroque theatre and the astonishing performances that were engineered here. The guided tour revealed all the mechanisms whereby whole sets could be changed in 15 seconds by only a few operators while the actors pursued their candlelit dramas. The position of the castle above the old town gives a multitude of views... More
