A visit to the castle is a must in Cesky Krumlov! You can simply walk up over the moat with the two bears, through the three inner courtyards, over the bridge and up into the magnificent garden with its lovely fountain, all for free. If you want to see more, there are four paid tours you can do. The first... More

There is a great deal to see in this castle and its grounds, so much so that we split it over two days. You could cover it off in one. It is accessed from Latran Street via the Red Gate and over the Bear Moat where two rather bored looking bears lived. The combi ticket has been scrapped and prices... More

The castle is huge and very nice. There is a gap of 10min between group entries, which is sometimes very small - we often met previous/next group during the visit and that was disturbing

it's a recommended to walk thru the castle. You will see fabulous view from the top-eye view. City is soooo wonderful. One of the lovely town you should not miss. Behind castle, you will find the garden. Most people don't go thru that area but if you have chance, just keep walking. It's worth to walk.

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

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
