Superb castle with what a rich history of this Central-European area! We jumped into history of Austria, Hungary, Croatia and Slovenia all together.

Beautiful castle with breathtaking views. Some of the rooms have nice period furniture and many portraits of former masters and family members. There is a lot to see, but we were not lucky with our "English speaking guide". Her historic knowledge was limited (she didn't know that there was a time before the Austro-Hungarian Monarchy when Hungary was an independent... More

Beautiful castle and great history. A nice way to see the history of Croatia. I wish I was able to spend more time there. Weekdays are best to go - less crowded!

We travelled to Trakošćan from Zagreb and made a day of it. It's a nice castle, the tickets aren't expensive and the surroundings are beautiful. You can walk around the lake, buy some souvenirs, and there's a nice view from the castle. All in all it's a good idea for a trip.

This medieval castle sits majestically on top of a hill which is within easy walk from the public carpark at the foot of the hill. It is now restored as a museum of aristocratic life, furnished with well preserved portraits and furniture. However, when you have visited enough castles and palaces in Europe, this one doesn't stand out as extraordinary.... More

Absolutely beautiful castle and wonderful museum. I was fascinated with the family that owned this castle and all the furnishings that are on display. This was a wonderful afternoon trip.

A castle that words can't describe. If you are in Zagorje, stop there, you won't regret it. It show parts of Croatia history in a beautiful castle. The surroundings is equally breathtaking!

We took a private tour to Trakoscan Castle and the Krapina Neanderthal Museum with a Tours by Locals guide. The Castle was totally empty on the rather gray day we visited. We loved the beautiful views of it from below and the path around the lake. Then enjoyed a lovely local cheese pastry.

The castle is really great, nature and lake around it are stunning, but my impressions are that it needs renovation and more restaurants, souvenir-shops where you could take a break, eat and buy something.
