We arrrived before 9:00am to catch the first English tour. My intel was off, the tour began at 9:30am. Oh well, our tour group began promptly and consisted of 5 people. Our guide took us through the only guided portion, which was an hour in length, of the living quarters. He was very informative. The entire castle and grounds, which... More

2.5hrs drive from Vienna to Krumau. Such a beautiful quiant village. One has to take time and not rush when you come and visit this place, stop now and again and enjoy the beauty of this Fortress and its castle, just like coming going back in time.

The castle itself is amazing, with the beautiful tower and huge bridge. It also offers some great views of the city. From the bridge (at the furthest point of entry by "courtyard 1") you can get a great view of the town and the river which meanders through it. Its a great place for taking pictures or just enjoying the... More

I did, and really preferred it! With this system (obtained at the tourist center) you get to set your own pace, and stop to take as many photos as you want! I wasn't really interested in the castle interiors (which is good, because they weren't open for the season yet!), but spent hours threading through the castle grounds and going... More

Can't really review as some of it was closed. We could see the bears from the tower and that was the only thing we paid to go into.

but it's too bad one must take a guided tour instead of a self-guided tour. Yes, they have one in your language, a bonus, but I hate guided tours - I prefer my own pace, and not to have the ever-present thrusters of a tour. Don't miss the grounds!

The castle in Cesky Krumlov is so real. The moat with the bears in it was such a thrill for my grandchildren. The castle looks like it was kept in time. One of my favorites.

A well-preserved monument, the Castle tour and tower are the reason to go to this charming little castle town. The tours limit the number of people, so check on this -- you might find you arrive in plenty of time, but that tour is already full (like we did!). Well worth the effort and the entrance fee. I especially appreciated... More

If you are in Cesky Krumlov a visit in this medieval castle is a must. They offer different guided tours in Czech / German and English languages. Impressive appartments with old theater - take at least 2 hours to see the castle. After you take the guided tour you can go for a walk to the park and enjoy the... More
