Cesky Krumlov is deservedly a World Heritage site and the castle is a must when you visit. Some steep steps but the views over this medieval town are well worth it. A good reason to get out of Prague and see more of this fascinating country.

Cesky Krumlov, one of the best town I have ever visited. Seriously, if you visit prague, please take a break from the city life and go to this little town just south of Prague. I was so mesmirized. It's like from a fairytale book! BOHEMIA :) THE CASTLE GIVES U A VIEW OF THE AWESOME TOWN!

The park above the castle is definitely worth the uphill walk! Ancient trees and a romantic fish pond at the very back.

Castle was incredible and views and photo pops aplenty. Must do the hard walk up the hill away from palace to the gardens, great way to spend a sunny day.

Loved this Castle and the amazing gardens surrounding it. There are 3 options for tickets to view the inside areas, and I would recommend purchasing at least one, although you are able to walk around the grounds and courtyards for free. A must see when in Cesky Krumlov.

We enjoyed several hours wandering around the castle and gardens. Such a pretty place, wonderful views of the walled city, river and bridges. Amazing! No cost to wander around. Highly recommended.

We did the English speaking tour of the Castle and thought it was worth every euro. A very informative walking tour which took approx. 60minutes. We came away with some good knowledge of the history of the Castle, its residents including some humorous tales which always adds to the memories.

We have toured a number of castles in central Europe and this one had one of the most memorable interiors. The guide was excellent at giving us the history of the castle. I am a theater buff and loved getting to see the baroque theater.

The castle is way more beautiful from the outside. The tour is not worth the money or the time. The city itself is way more interesting and worth your time.
