“Reasonable Excursion”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 20, 2014

I visited this because Werner Herzog had used it for his film Nosferatu, and I was happy with viewing it from the outside, It does have an impressive visual impact. However, if you want a internal guided tour in English, you will need a minimum of 20 guests. Overall, there are better castles in the Czech Repblic, or the neighbouring Slovak Republic.

“Castle which was never conquered!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 2, 2013

It's not so difficult to get to the Castle - the bus is going from Bus Station Zvonařka in Brno (it's better to take that in 08:30 to have more time and not to lose the whole day;)). And of course this visiting you'll remember long after as the Castle is really great. As I wrote in the title according to Czech sites information it is the only castle (on the territory of Czech Republic) that has never been conquered!!!:))

“Van Helsing”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 23, 2013

Spent a short afternoon here, surprisingly this Castle is in good shape considering its age between 1270-1285. I recommend travelers who are passing through the town of Nedvedice or staying to visit to check out this site, the Castle is located approximately 1.3 Km from the town Nedvedice on a rock hill, but is only open in the summer, sometimes they have festivels for visitors in the winter, if you travel during winter months you can walk up to the main gate which is locked, but you can get some great pictures of the outside. This Castle was also one of the locations for shoots for the movie "Van Helsing" starring Hugh Jackman and Kate Beckinsale, although there is plenty of CGI added to the picture. The nearest info. Attraction phone number is: +420 511 119 173 located in the City of Brno and the location phone number is: +420 566 566 101. e-mail: pernstejn@brno.npu.cz

“Real reason to leave highway”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed December 12, 2012

Unusual example of the use of natural conditions (and limitations), preserved condition of 15/16 century, a complex labyrinth of interior spaces, the beautiful surrounding forests. Photos will tell much more (-:
