Not your average castle (no castellations etc) but a huge structure built high on the natural cliffs, the approach is via a steep cobbled ramp, not so easy for the infirm, then across the moat down in which are two large brown bears, (these have a historic significance) but for me? tragic, yes they look in good condition? but they...

About 2+1/2 hours from Prague, a great place for a day trip. Lovely medieval city with beautiful vistas. We travelled with CK Shuttles which is really what I wanted to review. Both drivers were great. Felt completely at ease on both journeys. Both were from Cesky Krumlov & one made the comment that you could probably see everything in a... More

We really enjoyed our Viator full day tour from Prague; it is a very long tour, about eleven hours, through the Bohemian countryside to the village and castle and then back . There is a lot of walking once you get there, up and down hills, so those who have difficulty walking will find it too much. Our tour guide,... More

The castle is certainly not as grand or impressive as many in Europe, but it has a nice, small, calming village within it's walls. There are separate fees to see various attractions, i.e. the castle, "Golden Row", toy museum, etc., so the costs add up with this ala carte approach. We did find the toy museum (70 Kc) reasonable priced... More

A stunning castle, with a great museum and a magnificent view, in a World Heritage listed town. Enough said. Just visit.

Great view of the city, with nice walking area and very nice gardens to see inside. Museuns were already closed, so could not see it

If you are interested in history of Schwarzenberg family, you are at the right place. And if not, castle is so beautiful to explore, that you don't need to by interested in history that much. :)

how often may anyone walk thru late Renaissance, smell, feel associate with its Glory, and edifices...A Must if you are visiting Prague, and well worth going thru Czech Republic for this unique time-travel experience...IF have the time, stay overnight at any of the small B & Bs, or rented rooms offered while on foot

The views over the village and the river. The access to the castle is not difficult, though not really suitable for aged people.
