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.

Trakoscan Castle sits on a small hill amongst the Croatian countryside. It is impressive to see it standing there, the walk up to the castle is through a leafy path then onto the roadway that circles the building. Each room has been preserved to highlight the history and to show how the castle was used when people lived there.

The castle is nice, but most of the time you can spend in the park, visiting lakes and forests. In the summer you can visit the lake by boat and pedal boats. It is also great for a picnic.

Well preserved medieval castle with lots of items from different historical periods. Each room tells different story: art room, room with hunting trophies, arsenal, .. Great place for whole family. Like in fairy tale, castle is situated on a beautiful lake with promenade all around.
