The view from the top of the castle is stunning. Visiting this UNESCO preserved city is like taking a trip back to the 80's, in a beautiful way.

I visited this place for the first time in 1999 when I was with the filmcrew of a Norwegian children's film called Fomlesen in kattepine . The town and the castle has been used in many film shoots and is certainly worth a visit. The entrance to the castle is guarded by two large brown bears. Here you will come... More

Probably the most interesting attraction in Cesky Krumlov. Climb up the Castle Tower for a bird's eye view of the town. Not your average climb but definitely worth the effort. The Castle is nicely lit at night.

we really loved walking around the castle. The views are amazing. One of the highlights for us was surprising. We walked down to the forge which is off the entrance to the castle. We were a bit surprised about paying to go in, but did so. There is a display of metal work, some of which is centuries old, but... More

This is a huge castle which will take most of the day to see all available routes. You buy a ticket for one of five routes which will take you through most of the castle, the tower and the theater. The rooms are very well preserved in period furniture. They have a limited number of English tours so go early... More

Journey from Prague city to Cesky Krumlov took about 2.5hr thus it was near noontime when we reached there. It was a bit rush to walk round the beautiful place, visit museum and take photos. We need to leave the place about 4.30pm. Terrific view from the tower where you can take awesome photos. Prepare thick clothing if going on... More

Don't miss the castle when you visit Cesky Krumlow! It's beautiful from the streets but also a beautiful view at the city from the top of the castle.

Cesky (pronounced: Chesky) Krumlov is a place that has the reputation of never being invaded, occupied or attacked, bomb or infested by the black plague. The town is a gem still in its original style and architecture of 1000 years ago, the ultimate medieval township built on a river around a castle. One day was just not enough to explore... More

The landscape of the town is fantastic and if you are just passing by on your way to Salzburg then it's worth a visit but it's not a must visit from Prague. You better spend the day doing other things like visiting Karlovy Vary (Carlsbad). It's not worth a visit during winter.

second biggest castle in the country: going through all of the courtyards up to the castle gardens and even all the way to the fish pond is a great way to spend afternoon in Cesky Krumlov and a must do for every visitor. This route is free of charge and open even in the evening. Make sure you eat sth... More
