Spilberk is not only a castle, there is also a museum inside, and it is quite nice. You can see the prisions from the older building and learn about the history of the city and the castle. Also, the view from the castle is breathtaking. It is a program you can do with friends, family or partner. It is also... More

My first impression of this building is that it didn't look as a classic castle at all, and indeed - it was renovated and transformed into a civil building during the Austro-Hungarian era. The exhibitions were mainly in Czech - occasionally German and English. The best part is to just walk in the grounds of the castle and appreciate the... More

Have been there more times, with family, friends, etc. Always a good point for a tour for the weekend, or have some fun. The nicest view to the city. Must see.

Walking around the castle was one of my favourite parts of our trip. With autumn in full swing, the leaves gave the whole castle a speck of colour. A very nice and peaceful park surrounding the castle, fantastic view!

What could have been a great tourist attraction is actually quite a let down. There are no notices or boards explaining anything, lots of empty rooms and it only takes 15 mins to walk around. We reached the exit soon after entering and asked ourselves "was that it ?". This is the first time I've not given a good review... More

We were given laminated sheets & we walked around Rampaths – for prisoners. The castle contained museum and exhibits = gave it a miss.

Wonderful view of the city, nice castla courtyard with a chime playing every hour. Inside the castle there are many interesting expositions - you can start in the cellars where castle dungeon is...

If you have half-day in Brno, Spilberg is must-see point. Exept view-point experience, you will get a deep-involving audio-tour and opportunity to explore the castle dungeon.

Well worth the winding walk up to the top for the fantastic sight and photo opportunities of Brno and surrounding areas.
