Worth to visit!

Just only few kilometers from Brno. Nice castle surrounded by nature. The castle hasn't been reconstructed completely yet. Anyway, it looks great!

The castle is located in the vicinity of the mid part of the Brno artificial lake. Driving distance roughly 10 to 15 minutes from the high-way exit (Ostrovacice). There are two parking areas. One (the larger one) at the ground level of the castle and a smaller one at the mid level. The entrance fee is really moderate and the... More

First, the name of the castle is "Hrad Veveří", not Statnim Hrade Veveri. It is located near Brno and the ideal way to come is by bus, car or - the best choice - by boat, which belongs to Brno public transportation. The trip will make a half of the impression as the castle itself may be disappointing. There is... More

We have not had enought time to visit the interiors, so the rating is for exteriors of the castle only. From a distance it looks fabulous, inside the castle walls, it is difiicult to say. Apparently some reconstruction works are on, but the buildings looks quite shabby and somehow abandoned. May be the interiors would change my oppinion, definitely will... More

This place is about 90 minutes out of Brno by public transportation. Note that a couple of tram lines, 1 and 3, are not operating out here at the moment. There is a boat that goes up Brno Lake from the tram stop to the castle. There is also a bus from the tram stop as well. There is some... More

Really enjoyed our trip with some Czech freinds to the castle, abuse over the last 60 years is very slowly being put right and I hope that they can get back some of the missing furniture and paintings. This combined with the boat trip from Brno makes a geat day out

Whoever likes taking long walks, should not miss this one regardless of the season (summer,winter etc). Take the tram to the lake and walk the path all the way from the tram stop, to the bridge opposite the castle and from there to the castle. There are other tracks to follow but this is the best one.

Veveri castle could come across as dissappointing if one is not familliar with the history of abuses it has suffered, several in the latter half of the 20th century. Reconstructions and restorations are a relatively recent development for this particular castle. The Nazis used it during WWII and gutted it while in the process of retreating late in the war....

I was disappointed with this experience as there is really nothing to see in the castle - you actually cant go inside - so you can just walk around and we could look around from a tower. Btw the food and beverage was very pricey....
