Telc château quite deserves its place in the UNESCO list. It has so many original interior objects, more than four hundreds years old. These includes beautifully carved stone and wooden ceilings, marble and wood floors and many more. H

While the exterior of this castle was rather ordinary and hidden off the town center, the interior was truly extraordinary. Much of the beautiful interior is original and very well preserved, including incredible wall etchings and murals, carving, marble and wood floors, ironwork, tapestry, old graffiti, and paintings. Additionally, there is a rather memorable hunting trophy room and a ghost... More

The castle is fairly unremarkable from the outside (although the grounds are lovely) but the rooms inside are wonderful. You can only visit the inside by guided tour, at fixed times. Check the website before you visit. There are two tours available: on Tour A (120 Kč) you can visit the Renaissance halls, and on Tour B (90 Kč) you... More

There is no English tour or audio guide, only a handout in English. But, the tour rushes through rooms and it is difficult to read and absorb the material while trying to look at the same time. Also, no pictures are allowed, except for those who have no integrity and use their phones anyway. The guide knew this but didn't... More

It was my first time i visited Telc in Czech Republic. I liked it so much. For one day is okay. There are many activities that you can participate but it is out of the city center. And i don't know how to get there if you don't have a car.

We took the guided tour of the Chateau in Czech and had a card to read in English. They do have English tours but we were only there for a few hours while passing through and did not have time to wait for the English tour. The guide was even helpful in talking to us in English to point out... More

We loved the guided tour, the gardens are also really nice! It´s situated right in the heart of Telc, with walking distance to the church, tower and all 3 ponds.

We were frustrated at first because it was hard to figure anything out because of the language. Most signs are only in Czech, and the ladies at the first ticket booth only spoke Czech. But pay a few CZ koruna to get a ticket to enter the grounds. If you just want to look around the grounds and leave, that's... More
