Not being able to actually go inside of the castle, we opted to wander through the castle grounds...no fee. Crossing over the bridge, we viewed the bears that were beneath in a moat like setting. A bit of a hike, with rather steep areas, but worth the effort. Take your time to go through the castle grounds, with a beautiful... More

To be fair, I must start by saying that this was the only castle I visited in Europe, so if you have been to others, this might not be as necessary or unique. That being said, the view from the top of the tower is second to none, so I would suggest that you at least do that while here.... More

I loved the indulgence these gardens portrayed, to hide the beauty for the fortunate few! Would love to attend a summer play in the kitch 1960's outdoor theatre. Very early brisk spring, the massess now breathing the air!

A wonderful city and a must see for anyone visiting Czechoslavakia. You can see almost everything there is to see in 2 - 3 days. We walked everywhere and it was easy to do. The little bridges cross the river and you can take photos from so many different vantage points. We walked up to the top of the Castle... More

This castle is an excellent place to visit. The buildings and grounds are in good condition and very nice. The castle museum is well worth a visit. Side note-the coffee shop at the entrance to the museum makes great coffee and hot chocolate beverages. The climb to the top of the hill gives you an impressive view of the castle... More

One of the highlights of Cesky Krumlov, the climb to the top of the castle tower has a lot of stairs but is worth it for 360 views of the beautiful town! The castle has real bears under the drawbridge that leads to the castle, its magical. There are huge castle gardens that are magnificent, I spent a couple of... More

If you are going to Cesky Krumlov you'll go to the castle - unless you have difficulty walking. Access is only by a VERY steep, gravel walkway, and there are lots and lots of steps inside. Once there the Castle is beautiful, and very interesting.

Wonderful views we paid 130CEK for a castle and tower tour. The castle tour had loads and loads of detailed information on the headsets. Incredible views from the top of the tower and also beautiful gardens to walk around.
