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....

Considering other castles of Moravia and Bohemia, this is just an average castle as far as the buildings are concerned. But the environs are really nice, boat trip to the castle (from Brno) is definitely recommended, and they sometimes sell very nice Moravian wines at a castle shop. BTW, the name of the castle is just "Hrad Veveri", one could... More

Old castle that had been very well reconstructed over the recent years basically out of ruin, located in beautiful countryside around Brno with possibilities of nice walks and cycling trips. There's a lot to see at this castle, including a museum, sights of the area around it and mainly special events that are going on from time to time.

I really really hope I spelled it right!! We bought tickets back/forth since we didn't want to walk for two hours to get back. But nice idea if you have a bicycle at your disposition. The boat trip was lovely, we enjoyed the scenery very much. We watched nature in all it's forms, fishing for carps, naturistic sunbathing, families enjoying... More

Castle still needs lots of money. Trail from ship port is nice. Coming on bicycle is quite dangerous as road is narrow and with lots of traffic. Path on the opposite side of the lake is suitable only for MTB as some parts are very steep and narrow. Public transport is frequent and stop is near the entrance.

Its not directly at Brno downtown, but its really one day trip. The best way for us is take tram or any other public transport or taxi to boat station in Brno dam, sometime called "Prygl". Buy ticket to station "Hrad Veveri - Castle Veveri" and from this station its about 20 min walk by very nice part of nature... More

When I lived in Zastávka u Brna I passed by the Castle many times on the road and also on the boat trip along Brno Lake. When we had the chance for aq private tour we jumped at it and were shown around by a friend's daughter who was one of the students employed as guides in the summer. Over... More
