We had trouble finding the place since the roads were torn up for repairs and the detours were not marked well, but it was worth the trouble. The castle is beautifully restored and gives a great impression of what life was like in the past. The guides don't speak English, so you get a written guide, you're not allowed to... More

The castle is beautiful from the first peek through the trees. As you drive up the hill, the impressive spires and windows make for great fairytale style photos. We chose the "Extensive Tour" which covers living quarters, guest rooms, dining room, office, even a bath. Takes about 80 minutes which flew by. There is also a "Knight Tour" which is... More

We had trouble locating the pay kiosk, but after that had to wait for the next tour - you cannot wander freely alone. Our guide had no English but we were given information sheets in English. It is certainly an interesting castle and well worth a visit. We were not impressed by the food outlet - take your own picnic.

Hrad Bouzov is a wonderfully restored Castle. Once ravaged by fire and time the Castles exterior as well as the interior have been painstakingly restored over decades to really bring this castle back to life. The rooms are also filled with many interesting artifacts. It really is a beautiful drive up to it as well as it perches atop a... More

So you're driving through the Czech country side, end up in the small village of Bouzov and then you see this fabulous castle. I've seen a lot of castle on my trip through Czech Republic. In my opinion, this one is the best. Very beautiful, very well kept, interesting tour (in Czech, but can be followed in English on paper).... More

Has an interesting history behind it. Was very nice to see the interior and hear about different events that occurred there. Also has an interesting(?) torture museum on the side with sound effects and all

The castle is approx 20 km north-west from Olomomouc towards to city hradec Kralove. You can get there very easy with public bus via town Litovel. Nice castle and spectacular countryside.

The castle is well-restored and rich in interiors, and in history. A choice of two tours and extra programmes, well worth time spent. Free parking possible in city square.

This castle is a "must see" in Olomouc region. The castle is really beautiful, there are 6 different tours... we took "the castle" (130 CZK) thinking we will see the whole castle, unfortunately it didn't included the tower (you need additional ticket to visit the tower). The rooms were full of old furniture and decorations. Beware you have to pay... More
