Museum was cheap which helped as there wasnt much to see. However the guide there was extremely helpful.

“Not worth the hike”
3 of 5 stars Reviewed April 10, 2012

Went up the hill to Spilberk Castle, and was unimpressed. Paid for entrance to the "Kasameny", and there wasn't much to see. Time and money is better spent elsewhere.
View of the city is nice though.

“Interesting for views of Brno”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed April 3, 2012

Once you have climbed to the top you can see excellent views of Brno. Unfortunately when we visited the castle was closed and refurbishment was going on - so externally well worth a vist - internally cannot comment. The walk to the castle is a nice landscaped park and i think in late spring and summer would be well worth a visit. It was once a notorious prison, something it is hard to discern from the outisde - as it looks deceptively like a civil service goverment office!.

“In winter windy - but have been told great in spring and summer.”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 12, 2012

Great place to visit but not in the winter. It is a paid entrance even though the EU does give a helping hand.
