It's a tragedy that most people don't know about this lovely little gem in Moravia. My parents were born in the Czech Republic and took me here when I was fourteen years old. For me, the highlights are: 1) Few lines, no rushed tours and you can enjoy the castle at a leisurely pace. 2) The Czech Republic was always... More

I'm sorry, but there seem to be some misunderstanding about where the castle actually is. Trip advisor map shows it as located slap bang in the middle of Olomouc, though it is miles off. Is the Statue of Liberty located on the Fifth Avenue? How about Hoover dam, you mean it isn't really on the Las Vegas Strip?! Though they... More

I was born in this town we left when I was very young so I do not remember anything really. This castle is around 800 year old castle dating back to the early 1300's. The architecture has changed many times over the centuries from early Gothic to Renaisssance style. We had a guide with us since we were on tour... More

It was slightly disappointing to see that castle in grounds are closed during weekdays, but seeing this castle on top of the hill from below made it worth the side trip.

If you like castles like we do, make the effort to find this fantastic castle (exit 265 from the highway).

We visited the castle in July 2012, late afternoon, took the standard tour, but may be it would be better to have more time and climb the tower - the view of the surrounding area should be spectacular. The tour is in Czech, there is a written guide in English. The castle is very beautiful with its bridge and towers... More

We went on an extremely hot day and even so enjoyed the castle and the tours. The tour is in Czech but you are given an English written guide. CHeap cafe in the grounds is fine for simple snack.

Perfect castle: overall fairy-tale look, 5 different sightseeing tours to realize everybody's wish: basic tour for adults, tour for children, tour of "bird's point-of-view" and special tour "How the castle was built & rebuilt". The castle has unusual history and hence present look: For approx. 250 years was not a seat of nobility, but of German Ritters Order. So, rebuilt... More
