Tours available, but not in English. English speakers are referred to sheets of information in each room. Still worth a walk thru though for the history of the place. Tickets include the tower, with a fantastic view of the town. Warning: steep and slightly claustrophobic stairs to the top.

This huge castle (one of the largest in central Europe) has a wonderful hill and many well preserved / restored rooms. Be sure to take the separate Theatre Tour. The theatre is one of the world's most completely preserved barqoque theatres - the machinery, costumes, etc still there and functional. You get to tour the machinery under the stage from... More

The buildings are beautiful and the gardens lovely. The tour was informative. The views of the town from the castle walls are excellent.

Must visit the castle if you go Cesky Krumlov, a stunning place. We went to the top of the castle tower and saw the whole view of CK (very beautiful). *TIPS, if you want to see the whole view of CK including the castle, better go to the little park outside the Ruze Hotel, you will see the beautiful view...

The eye catching center of the town, you have to at least walk through the grounds of Cesky Krumlov Castle for the views, which are completely free. You can walk through the castle into the gardens all for free, and if you have a guide book and/or take the free walking tour, you will learn quite a bit. I took... More

I would definitely recommend checking out the castle. It reminded me of a castle right out of a fairytale story. The view is gorgeous and picturesque. My favorite part had to be the caverns under the castle filled with art. Very cool experience!

Situated above the town centre, the castle complex is well worth a visit. It's a bit of a walk uphill with some rough paving but the views from the top are excellent. Some of the architecture is very decorative and worth stopping to admire. And you'll pass lots of interesting shops on the way up and down including some selling... More
