“walk with views”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 4, 2012

In city center, on the top of the hill, all newly reconstructed. The hill is a park which offers many views at surrounding areas. Great place to relax and just enjoy your time.

“Dominates over the hill”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed November 24, 2011

The Spielberk Castle is a must see in my opinion when you are visiting the town of Brno. High walls, underground cells, torturing instruments and some nazistic remains are some of the interest points of this monument. You should spare a couple of hours exploring its history and try to take some really good photos from up there!
